Mike McKenna RIP

*

Iwan Thomas reports:

I have received the sad news that Mike McKenna died in the early hours of Sunday morning after a prolonged illness.

Although not himself a quizzer, Mike played a significant role in the DPQL, both as a committee member and as question coordinator, without whose conscientious efforts the league might have ceased to exist. He was also responsible for redrafting and updating the league’s rules.

Mike will also be remembered as a popular and scrupulous question reader, first for the Jolly Sailor and later for the Royal Oak team that included his late wife, Margaret.

He will be greatly missed.

DPQL member Tim Coxall writes about his new novel Challenge 69 – A Musical Maverick Mystery:

“1) I’ve managed to weave a fair bit of the music I love into the narrative, with a heavy bias towards songs and artists from the ’70s through to the turn of the century. This seems to be an era of music many of you also enjoy, in which case the book should appeal, and more importantly,

2) The story is structured around my protagonist’s need to solve a series of online challenges, the clues for which become ever more convoluted and difficult to solve as the book progresses. Think ‘Only Connect’ in a novel form! The attraction for Quiz League members here is hopefully clear, and from a personal perspective I’d love to find out just how much I’d managed to ‘challenge’ you all!

Please visit https://challenge69.substack.com and sign up to receive Chapter 1 on 10 August. Subscription is free, for at least the first three months, so there’s a genuine chance here to ‘try before you buy’.”
