NEW ITEMS

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

This was held on Wednesday, 6th December at Birdseye Club. The questions were set by Lawrence Cook and they proved to be probably the best ever set at any Table Quiz and the eleven teams all enjoyed an excellent evening. Results were as follows:-

Surplus Rowdies. 91. Out of 102
Bux Kwiz.              88
Rasen.                   87
Minders.                82.5
Time Out.              79
Nemesis.               78
Swats.                   76
Men in corner.      70.5. Guest team
Somnambulists.   68
Dad's Lads.           63.5 Dad's Army remnant
Two Witless.         62.5

There was a very good turnout and Woodentops were also represented by Mike Taylor
who very kindly sold names on a name card which was won by Andy from the Men in the
Corner- ex Blocksbusters who set all an example by supporting the Table Quizzes though no longer playing in the League.

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.
