The quiz is a no iPhone zone (I should probably try to find a picture of an iPhone 4.0). It just spoils it for everyone. If you see someone on another team using their iPhone then take a picture of them with your phone. If we all work together we can beat this.

& the winners were...

Gag on a Sag, taking it from Too Old To Think on the tie-breaker. Both teams scored 86 points.

There was also a tie break for third, with Old Hamtonwellians beating Village Idiots. Both of these teams scored 80 points.

Quiz Akabusi were the best team of two, with 55 points.

All teams got prizes as usual - this month we had a lot of water pistols to give out!
