    My apologies


    I said MK was wearing a pink dress, it was actually a lavendar dress. Oh well, Ravel was not the only one with dementia LOL.

    <span style="colorurple;font-size:small;">" The judges will see 24 attempts for double axels in this competition. Watch her (MK's) landing, look at the control, and that is the reason why they will remember hers" Kurt on Michelle at worlds 1994</span>

    So some of you may want to revise your answer to #1?

    4DK, I have already sent a check to usfsa memorial fund in honor of Hamill before this quiz.

    You have just won one classical music cd (sorry my choice) for another skater. So who is she or he?

    Re: The answers please


    You mean I got all the right answers? Wow. I went back and forth on the Debussy question. Finally I picked Claire De Lune because that piece of music really gets on my nerves. Then you came back with the decreased choices and I just knew La Mer was correct. So much for gut instinct.
    (I did know the answers to the other questions.)

    Anyway my choice for the CD is Brian Boitano and I was able to find the address of the public relations firm that represents him:

    Keith Sherman & Associates
    234 W. 44th Street
    Suite 1004
    New York City 10036

    If any one else has a better address, please use that.

    eltamina, thank you for the quiz and the opportunity to use my brain or in the very least, my memory.

    <blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr>thank you the quiz and the opportunity to use my brain or in the very least, my memory.[/quote]

    It is mutual, I have a lot of fun reading cd liners to prepare the quadrivia :lol:

    Again thanks for participating. The next quadrivia will be in August.

    Re: Brian Boitano


    I'm sorry, I just got caught up in the search for contact information that I forgot to include his birth date - 10-22.

    I know this birth date without research because it's the day before mine.

    Thanks again for the 'hunt'; I do love it when 'the games afoot".
