NEW ITEMS

Ian Welham on Eggheads.

Just been informed by Ian Welham that a team in which he is a guest will be on Eggheads on BBC Two at Six pm Tuesday 16th January.

UPDATE - If you missed it live it is worth a look on iPlayer to see Ian in action. Do you know what type of product was the first ever to have its bar code scanned? Ian knew, watch the program to find the answer.

European Quizzing Championships

The event has just finished and full results can be found on the web site http://www.europeanquizzingchampionships.com. For watchers of Eggheads, The Chase and Mastermind there are many familiar names in the top 10 from the individual event. Egghead Pat Gibson was the winner. Ian Welham finished 121st out of the 199 entry, an excellent result considering the quality of the field. Playing with Gareth Aubrey, Ian finished 19th in the pairs event out of 99 pairs. This event was also won by the Eggheads in the shape of Pat Gibson and Kevin Ashman. Looking at some of the sample questions from previous championships makes you realise that this is a different level of quizzing. Well done Ian!

Harry's Notes

Division 1
Quizlings. 78. Serendipity. 82
Nemesis.  91.  Rasen. 90
RAFA Dipsos. 68. Minders. 70

Division.2
Bux Kwiz. 52. Magic Robots. 92
Too Witless. 61. Time Out. 71
Midori Desu. 54. Belligerent Fools. 98

Two more surprises in the top grade when, after being behind every Round up to the last, Serendipity shocked the Quizlings to win by 4 at the death while lowly Minders edged through by just 2 against the tough challenge of RAFA Dipsos. In keeping with the very low margins of the week, Nemesis squeezed through by a single point over the fast improving Rasen foursome.

In the second level, Robots made mincemeat of Bux Kwiz by the enormous margin of 40 points but Belligerent Fools upstaged that by taking out Midori Desu by 44. The luckless Too Witless made a gallant attempt to overturn the men of Time Out but were 10 away at the close.
