"And in 4th Place" In Fact Came Twelfth, But Won a Prize!

Nick H

Some fascinating team names this evening at the Highwayman. As well as "Multiple Scoregasms", we also had "Pimp my Butterfly" and "Bobby's dusty Mushrooms". In terms of interpretation, I think Discretion is the better part of valour, although they do set the imagination going! Team "Nick and Jenny and Bill and Ted" is a little more straightforward in that "Nick and Jenny" were joined by two delightful visitors from Ireland in the form of Bill and Ted who appeared in The Highwayman speculatively asking if they could join a team - great to have you and maybe a song next week?

Anyway, down to the outcome of the quiz. The normally easier first half of the quiz proved a little more onerous this week with "Let's get Quizzical" taking a two-point lead from "Neo", "26 Victoria Gate" and the aforementioned "Bobby's Dusty Mushrooms" and "Pimp my Butterfly. It was, however, "26 Victoria Gate" who surged ahead in the second half to take the £40 bar voucher first prize. Insofar as the £20 bar voucher for the team with the second least points is concerned, what turned out to be the inappropriately named "And in 4th Place" in fact came twelfth, but won the prize.

A tiebreaker question was necessary to separate "Multiple Scoregasms" and Nick and Jenny and Bill and Ted to select from the remaining 5 Jackpot envelopes for the £150 cash prize. The former prevailed and their recently married team member selected envelope number 4 containing the message 'better luck next week'; oh and also with your marriage. So, the £150 Jackpot rolls over to next weeks Quiz Night at The Highwayman on Wednesday 5th September: 7.00 pm for a 7.30 pm start. All welcome but don't forget it's always advisable to book a table in advance on 01442 285480.
