Dear A.netters,

I remember that we had this game several times in the past, but not for a long time now. Quite a number of you participated.

For those who never played it before: It is very easy. I randomly selected a couple of North American (USA/Canada) airports and you have to guess the airport code. The first one with the right answer gets one point (which is absolutely worthless  Big grin ).

Hope some of you are interested. Here is the first one:
