Thanks for entries to my quiz,and congratulations to Tom,who only missed number24.

Feel free to contact me if you can't see how I've arrived at any of the answers.

Apologies to (relatively)new club members who had trouble with 2,3 and (in particular) 24,who were ex-members. With hindsight,I should not have included these.

Bottle of wine goes to Tom.   Collect at Brun Valley?      Jim.
