**** Welcome to another round of Questions of The Week!
Please read the Introduction and requirements, changes may have been made.
A member of the Awards Committee will post questions, at a random day/time.
The competing member may make one post per question thread to answer the questions and the member’s winning entry must have all parts of the questions answered completely in that one post. Editing your one answer post allowed will result in disqualification.
Any disregard to the above and divulging the correct answers or giving hints/references will cause a disqualification.
I like the new member rule so until at 0001 (CST) on Tuesday 6 August 2019 only new members here less than 5 years are eligible and at that time if a winner has not been announced the questions will be automatically open to all members. I like that rule change, give the new guys/gals a chance since you old timers know so much!
First correct answers (as judged by the Awards Committee or Poster of the Questions) wins.
The lucky winner will get a case of “Now that you’ve had a Home Inspection Books” shipped to them at their address on file. Make sure your Address on File with INACHI is correct.
Winners of the Questions of The Week shall request their prize by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and submitting their Mailing address for shipping.
Allow 2 weeks for delivery.
GOOD LUCK! ~ GO!
