What you've all been waiting for!!!!......

"G" is for GAMES PEOPLE PLAY: The New Dragonfly Quiz

Consider the following cryptic clues ~ all answers begin with the letter "G"

1. Scientist places current in unfinished galleon (7)
2. Whip up with an old spoon? (4)
3. What Midas used to fish for Solidago (9)
4. Author not recognised working by spirit lamp? (5-6)
5. Biblical location stops No. 1 ending on Earth (7)

The first is a person's name, the second a game, then a plant, followed by an occupation and the final one is a place name.

Interested? There are 100 similar clues in the Third Dragonfly Quiz entitled "G is for Games People Play" which contains clues to 50 Games and 50 words starting with the letter "G" (with five themed groups of 10). Copies of the new Quiz can be obtained from the organiser: Mrs Pauline Ward, 9 Hassop Road, Reddish, Stockport, Cheshire, SK5 6ST. Entry is �1 and cheques should be made payable to "Stockport NHS Foundation Trust (Dragonfly Team)" which will support the work of a local Children's Hospice visiting children who are spending their last days in the bosom of their family.

Don't forget to enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

You will have until the beginning of August 2008 to submit your answers and �50 has been allocated for prizes ~ including a prize for obtaining the average score and another prize for scoring below the average!

Once again, the Questions have been set by Krophta (aka crofter).

Answers:
1. GALILEO = I (current) inside GALLEO(n)
2. GOLF = Reverse FLOG & a spoon was once a golf club
3. GOLDENROD = plant Solidago & King Midas
4. GHOST-WRITER = One writing for another & Ghost/Spirit
5. GALILEE = GALILE(o) + E(arth)


Can't wait to hear from you all!!!!...Love Pauline and Crofter!
