The SOTA Christmas Quiz 2016 will be published on this website on Monday or Tuesday next week. 180 questions / puzzles to solve, some SOTA related, many not (for a change). All difficulty levels in there from the embarrassingly easy, to the nigh-on-impossible (as usual).

- Quiz Champion
- Pedants’ Corner Chairman
- Most Unseasonal Grumble About The Quiz
