Hi Everyone
Well what a day. Liverpool Airport was fogbound and it didn't look as though I'd make it. I changed airlines and that was the only flight that left for Northern Ireland. I had hassles with weights and times. Finally I was in the air and arrived in Belfast a minute before the quiz was due to start. Author Josh Lacey held the fort by reading from this books. What a grand turnout-many of the audience dressed in character and the prize went to the Chinese Cinderella. Then the finish was complicated as two teams tied for first and two tied for second thus setting up a sudden death final. After a tense decider the winner was Wellington College from Rathmore (they'd never competed before) and third was Friends School over Methodist College who was squeezed into fourth. Scholastic provided all the books for prizes and had a selection of titles for sale. Phew, what a day I don't want too many like that.
Keep turning the pages
