1. Claim your pins! 

First of all, in case you missed it, we have about a dozen pin-winners who have not claimed their pins and we are giving y’all a deadline of Sept. 17 to pick them up! If you have gotten email from us, or if your name has been listed as a winner on any quiz and you haven’t gotten in touch with us, please shoot us an email at or message us on our Facebook page.

2. Quiz hiatus & quiz feedback

Until we sort that all out with people picking up their pins, we are taking a quiz hiatus until at least Sept. 17! In the meantime, we are really interested to hear what you like about the quiz, what you don’t like, what would make you take it every week, etc. If you have any feedback, shoot us an email at or message us on our Facebook page.

3. Winners & answers from No. 17

We still have some unfinished business as it relates to Quiz No. 17! We are down to two pins, so we only have two winners this week, including one person who aced it and one rando!


  • Ace Kim Souza — glad to see you got the question about the Hartford Selectboard decision right! 🙂
  • Random winner Jeffrey Egner, who tallied an admirable 6-for-7

CONGRATS! Comment on our Facebook or email us at to let us know if you want to come by the Valley News to pick up your loot or if we should pop ’em in the mail.
