IT's all about the money...

The second quiz of the year, and a good turn out at The Colton, buoyed by the return of last weeks champions (now called 'The Naked Disney Princesses') and 'Paceys Mom'. An easy start to the quiz, although one team from Holland believed man has set foot on two planets (reverting to type!)and a great first half for all the previous champions. Not so good however, for 'Markles Sparkles' who left themselves with an up hill second half battle with only 9 points. The second half proved a little trickier and although 'Paceys Mom’s' newest team member broke an anagram record (a staggering 2 seconds to get Gwyneth Paltrow) the rest of the team were not up to her level of intellect, and they succumbed to the 'Naked Disney Princesses', ably led by another strong Aussie captain, who found time to answer the odd question between his Ashes boasts. 1-0 in the all important one day series though, my friend, and we all know the one dayers are more important. And so to the envelope game, where the wooden spooners, 'Markles Sparkles' found some inspiration to guess closest to the number of Tesco’s there are in the UK. But could they find the right envelope? Well, it takes a brave person to pick the bottom envelope, but they were up to the task, and as a result, went home with nearly £250 in used notes and coins. We’ll need to find a new tactic for next week…
