STUMPERS

75. The race to hold the Summer Olmypic Games has become a much more prestigious event then any that involve sport. Collectively, the resources required to even be considered as a host are enormous and beyond the means of most Cities worldwide. Not all the Cities that have been chosen as Olympic Games hosts have been required to bid for that honour, however in recent times a complex and thorough tendering process has been required to sift through the Olympic hopefuls. Up to the start of the Sydney Olympics, exactly how many different cities had made or been involved in a bid directly or jointly to hold a Summer Olympics, either past present or future (note well if a bidding process was not undertaken then the city chosen as host does not count as a bidding city for this count)?

There was an organ playing but there was no organ in the orchestra pit, it was a tape. Who is the organ-player on that tape, and where is the organ he was playing located?
gyho4 - 09-19-2000 09:28 AM

79. It seems some cities are lucky and others not when it comes to hosting the Summer Olympics. Sydney or "Sidaneee" as it became known Olympically, were granted the Games on only their second attempt. This cannot be said for most of the Cities that have entered this bidding process. Up to the start of the Games of the XXVIIth Olympiad, what city has the unwanted record of being involved in the most bids for the Olympics without holding them or being selected to hold them, and how many times have they returned home without the games? For additional points, what other Olympic related first does this City have a claim to?

SAGEBRUSH QUESTIONS


To help those under 50 points of second place leader, these people will score double for these and it won't count against their daily limit. Although it won't count as your daily, you can answer only one of these bonus questions per day. This offer is good until they get within range or The Blowout / Catch-up Round (last 5 week days of the month/game).

All others may answer, but for 20 points and it will count as your daily.

Q102. NYSE Dow Jones Industrial Average aka DJI Index - the DJI peaked at 381.17 on 03-Sep-1929 and bottomed at 198.69 on 30-Nov-1929, a fall of 48%, but worse was to come from the crash of October 1929. The DJI recovered to reach 290.19 on 07-Apr-1930, which is a rise of 46% from the November trough (but still only three-quarters of its peak), and finally bottomed at only 41.22 on 08-Jul-1932 in the depths of the Great Depression. This is a drop (aka a wipeout) of 89% from its peak less than 3 years earlier! The DJI did not get back into the 290s for another 20 odd years when, coincidentally, it closed at 290.19 - what was the date?

Q108. The processes involved with deciding which teams qualify for annual European Cups spots in both the Champion's League and UEFA Cup are complex and frequently changed. In the Qualifying conditions for the 1998/99 Champions Cup (as it was then called)under what circumstances could a country have 3 teams qualified?

Q109. "Fair Play" award's are another way that countries have been able to grab spots in the European Cups, with three countries awarded an additional place each in the UEFA Cup Competition. In the UEFA Cup Competitions held between the 1995-96 and 1998/99 (ie 4 cups contested), which two countries won the most additional spots? For further points, which country had another spot awarded to them, only to see it revoked and why?
