  2. Hi all – we just wanted to let you know about some changes coming …

    As you will be aware, DoingFlorida is currently spread across two different sites; DoingFlorida.com and DoingFloridaForums.com. We will soon be changing this so that everything will be together under one site; DoingFlorida.com.

    The vast majority of our members and visitors already view our daily news on the main DoingFlorida.com site (or via our Facebook page) rather than on the forum. From this week, the daily news will appear only on the main DoingFlorida.com site, and this forum will shortly be closed down. We want to thank all our members for your fantastic support over the past eleven years, it has been great to get to know so many fellow Florida fans! If you would be interested in joining a DoingFlorida Facebook Group please let us know - it would be great to keep the community together - we will start a thread in the Members Forum so you can let us know what you think.

    It's the end of an era but the start of a new one and we very much hope you will join us!

    Best Wishes from the DoingFlorida Team

    here is the quiz which i comprised for the bbq, i tried it out on geoff, and my friends sally chris and maggie, they didnt do too well, i thought maybe it was too hard, but i knew a lot of the answers without looking them up, so i figured the dofors would be fine, im not telling what the score was that won, ( not yet anyway ) but i will say that deb who worked in epcot for a year was beaten by tracyjo and nigel, by 1/2 point, as were 2 other couples who had the same score.

    theres 40 questions, 1 point each and 10 bonus points at the end, Q21 i will accept 1 of 2 answers, as the answer that i have, i believe to be wrong. there is to be no cheating, no reference books, no google etc, you must pretend that you were here last night doing this "live" my answers are final, if any are wrong i apologise but thats what i researched
