Gonna keep on quizzing... down by the Riverside...
A busy night at the Crabtree as Summer seems to have given up the ghost as cool breezes played across the Thames. Thirteen teams packed the tables as regulars Northern Soul and Racecar is Racecar backwards battled it out with some newbies and some visitors. The second to last prize of a bottle of wine is proving a popular draw as there is a veritable race to the bottom in the second half. First prize of a £50 bar tab was claimed by two gents from out of town - Reading & Manchester (!) who'd just met for a catch-up but were also ex-quiz masters at Uni, so they had something to prove. And prove it they did, by winning by 3 clear points, despite being second at half-time behind 3 teams all on 20 points. But, as ever, it's the second half that separates the Generals from the soldiers, and their superior knowledge won the night. Special shout goes out to the family team Quizzy Rascals, who had pipped Springwatchers and Sleeping Slobro to the second place bottle of wine in the tiebreak question - who says you can't have a great night out with your Mum and your Auntie!
Despite numerous protestations from myself, including threats of docking points and public humiliation, it is understood that several Pokemon were also captured during the night. They may not be real, but I was assured 'The fun is!'. God help us all.
