The Winchester Flower Arranging Team Go Nuts

Michael B

An impressive 71 players spread over 16 trivia-hungry teams contested tonight's quiz at The Nightingale in Balham. Madison Hell won a round of boozy treats for correctly identifying the capital of Nepal as Kathmandu, but were pipped to the overall first prize of a £40 bar tab by Postulating Furiously, in a fiercely contested tiebreak. The latter exhibited a frankly terrifying knowledge of Sir Cliff Richard's back catalogue (insert innuendo here) to take top spot.

Quote of the night came during the weekly anagram question: "Do you have to use ALL the letters? (Pause) Right. Okay. So it's not 'scrotum' then, no?"

The jackpot rolls over once more as The Winchester Flower Arranging Team drew not the £330 kitty but a more modest bag of peanuts. Only seven envelopes remain ...

A thoroughly enjoyable evening, though spare a thought for the Quiz Master's vocal chords.
