I mentioned in some of my posts that it’s not unsual - sometimes, for pospects attending a invitation or showcase, to be ask questions about the game. This question and answer periods can be very casual or can be a formal sit-down session. Sometimes this “let’s see what the kid knows”, can be very casual … like in a converstation. In any event, try your hand at some of these. There’s no need to respond here - I’m just giving you a kind of look see.
