Corny, Cryptic Wednesday Quiz

Join us for a Quiz Night hosted by Bryan Hughes, Cruising Committee Member.

Because of the nature of the questions, I will give them out on Tuesday morning, so that people can think about them. On the Wednesday Zoom call, I will ask them again. Members can volunteer the answers if they wish. I will also give the answers out in full, asking Members to mark and score themselves on an honesty basis at the end, and a winner will emerge.
