Since there have been a number of posts since first publishing the questions for week 1, I thought I would re-publish so it is towards the top of the blog entries and easier to find. Note – nothing within the questions have changed so if you have already submitted your answers no need to worry.
Each correct answer is awarded one point (unless otherwise noted) towards to final rankings in the Rbk Challenge. Incorrect answers are worth zero points.
Answers must be emailed before goalie begins next Saturday’s session to firstname.lastname@example.org. No answers will be accepted after the goalie’s session has begun. Once answers sent via email, all answers are final.
