As noted in our November newsletter, in the October 2014 issue of TIRF Today, we offered a trick-or-treat challenge to our readers. The quiz was hosted on TIRF’sbook page. Although we had many replies to our quiz, no one answered all five items correctly.

We still are hoping to award a prize to one of our loyal newsletter readers and Facebook fans. Therefore, we are going to provide some hints below to help answer the items in October 2014’s newsletter.

We encourage you to take the quiz, even if you already did so. To take the quiz, visit our Facebook page and post your answers to the thread where the quiz is posted. We’ll announce the winner of the prize in our December newsletter. Click here to visit our Facebook page.

If you need help answering an item, you can write to Ryan Damerow, TIRF’s Executive Assistant at info@tirfonline.org.

Good luck!
