If we got stuck on a clue there was a QR code that we could scan for the answer, but that resulted in a time penalty. We could also call out for extra clues but once again a time penalty would be incurred. We ended up using the scanner and phone once each (all the while I'm saying "no, we'll figure it out!" but time was against us. Still I think we did all right, managing to make it out with five minutes remaining despite the time penalty.
Afterwards there was bowling, and pizza, and a couple of wines. I am a terrible bowler but then I wasn't trying out for the Olympics so who cares. *g*
Had a bit of an unpleasant surprise today when a fine for not voting in the local council elections arrived in the mail. The election was held last March and I didn't worry too much about it because the councillor for my ward was unopposed, and in previous years the council hasn't bothered to chase people who didn't vote; they reckoned it cost more to follow up than they received in fines. Looks like they've changed their way of thinking!
