Who Is APRR???

This is the Weblog’s inaugural “Who Is APRR???”

And here’s how it works: With ten questions asked to a single person, you (the reader) must guess which one of ten optional people the answers to the ten questions are about. What you do with your selected answer – I can care less. If you want to email your answer to me – I can care less. If you want to harass the person who you think that the answers pertain to – I can care less. If you want to personally interview each of the ten people in order to determine which one person all ten answers pertain to – again, I can care less.

But there is one thing that I do care about: If you enjoy this “Who Is APRR???” game, which I hope to do, I ask that you email to me a question or two or three that can be used for future games. (Be creative!) I would like to make use of a different set of questions for each game – and it would be nice if the questions were not ALL from MY head, or my own probing. Diversity of perspective can be key.

Once an “APRR person” has been featured, I intend to omit them from future games (since you'll already have learned some things about that person... like my grandmother says, "There's more fish in the sea"). For this game, my definition of an “APRR person” is simple and is as follows:

An APRR Person is any person or living companion of a person who has participated in any type of prearranged skating activity or non-skating activity in the company of one or more persons who claim to be associated with APRR; where, the defined APRR person participates in the said prearranged activity and is aided by or has permitted the use of some type of human powered device of mobility that utilizes wheels, whether skates, a bicycle, travel luggage, etc.; or else, participates physically or other than physically without the assistance of such device or devices; as well as, claims to have participated with any person or persons or companion of such who claim to be associated with APRR within the parameters of the time period of the existence of APRR, which being since the origin of the APRR organization, as chartered or not, whenever that may have been.

The answer of the correct candidate will be provided in the next “Who Is APRR???” game. If all goes well with this and my schedule, I hope to post this game somewhat regularly. Please let me know what you think. And don’t hesitate to provide both input and game questions.

Here are this inaugural game’s candidates (to be read vertically):
