Table Quiz 13th Sept

After what has seemed to have been an age, the League finally got off the ground again with a Table Quiz at a new venue. The Carr Lane club proved a satisfactory place and the scores were:-

 

                                      Apostles.             44

                                      Rowdies.              39

                                      Dipsos.                 37

                                      Nemesis.              36

                                      Somnambs.          34

                                      Robots.                 32

                                      Quizlings.              31

                                       Bux Kwiz.              31

                                       Two Witless.         21

                                       Dad's Army.          20

                                       Midori Desu.         20

 

Quizmaster was Martin Reed who utilised the sound system to present a Round of 1960s pop hits. There were 60 questions overall.


Harry's Notes

 

Division 1

Surplus Rowdies  66.  Bux Kwiz. 48

RAFA Dipsos.       63. Apostles.   61

 

Division. 2

Time Out.   70   Quizlings.   69

Swats.        69.   Bell. Fools. 49

 

 

In the top Division, Rowdies won again with a comfortable margin of 18 points over Bux. Reigning champions Dipsos had a real struggle to overcome a challenging performance from Apostles and must have been mightily relieved to edge through by just 2 points.

 

Division 2 also had a very close result and another fairly easy one. Time Out's clash with Bill Mercer's Quizlings went down to the wire with Time Out prevailing by a single point by answering the final question! Belligerent Fools succumbed to the strong Swats side by a margin of 20.

Please note that the fixture lists on this site are for use in conjunction with your fixture list booklets. If you ever find a discrepancy, precedence should be given to the booklet.

While I check, double check and triple check everything before I post it, it is still possible that I may have got my fingers and/or eyes crossed, and I don't want to send anyone to the wrong venue at the wrong time or on the wrong day. Finally, if you do spot a clanger, PLEASE let me know rodney@pandemonium.me.uk so I can fix it. Thanx! Ed.
