Did anyone spot the haddock?

Charles C

It was a veritable battle royale at The Duchy Arms last night with 10 teams fighting it out for the coveted bar tab 1st prize. We had questions on Dennis the Menace, The Strokes and on how big an ice hockey goal is (183cm wide by 122cm high, if you’re asking) and there truly was something for everyone. The picture sheet threw up a good couple of testers, not least a photo of a fish, which turned out to be a haddock. The teams were bunched come half-time with Hucklebum, Tooting and F Troop putting in strong showings. While Quiz Team 'Oharuogu', 'Charlie’s Anglels' (not named in my honor – hmph!) had punchy second halves. Come full-time we had a tie-breaker with Fake Quiz – Sad! just beating Agatha Quiz Team. Stable Geniuses got the bottle of wine (well strategised) but it was 'Quizzly Niedziewiedz' (‘Quizzly Bears’ in Polish) who got to play for the jackpot having got my leader question (‘How far underground is London’s deepest tube station: Hampstead?’) by getting exactly the right answer. Their swatting up on the bus on the way over paying off. Well, sort of. Unfortunately, the envelope they chose didn’t have the jackpot in it so….it’s a roll-over.
