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...

Inter Me Nan, with 90%, followed by the Old Hamtonwellians with 81%, and Hadaway & Shite with 78%.

The highest scoring quiz for a while, probably determined by the comparitive easiness of the pictures and music.

There was only one team of two, so they didn't warrant a special prize!
