League Week 1 of 8 Report (02/12/12)
A close and interesting start to the brand new quiz league at the Forge this week. Current champions "The Lemon heads" were absent which now means they are up against it if they wish to retain there title. This however opened the field and allowed other teams to display there league winning potential. These teams came in the shape of "1064" who won this evenings quiz with a score of 55.5 closely followed by another planet with 55 and the "Filthy Five" with 53.5. "The Chalfonts" and "Izzy Wizzy" finished in the 50's where as "Nothing between the Ears" and "No direction finished in the 40;s and 30 respectively. As this is the first week of a new league season this evening results will mirror the league positions.
NB: Teams have been asking me what is happening over the festive period with regards to the quiz. I have just had it confirmed that it is business as usual, so there will be NO BREAK over the Christmas period.
League Week 3 of 8 Report (16/12/12)
A close contest this evening with only half a point being the difference between the top two teams.

League Week 5 of 8 Report (30/12/12)
"The Lemon Heads" prevented "1064" making it 5 wins out of 5 by winning this evening quiz with a score of 63.5. Had the "Lemon Heads" not done it "Another Planet" would of as they finished a very close 2nd with a score of 63, which therefore meant "1064" finished third tonight with a score of 61.5. that aside "1064" still remain top of the league "The Chalfont's " finished the quiz fourth tonight with a score 59.5 and "Izzy Wizzy" 6th with a score of 55. This has helped "The Chalfont's" make a bit of ground up on the fight for third with "Izzy Wizzy" but at the moment "Izzy Wizzy" are still sitting tight in third in the league. "The Filthy Five" & "Just the two of us" finished with scores of 53 and 49 both slightly above there weekly average where as "Nothing between the ears" were slight below there's with a score of 47.5.

Week 7 and the penultimate week in the current league see's this evening snow effected quiz tied between the "Lemon Heads" and "1064" with both teams scoring 65 out of a possible 75. The quiz therefore went down to a tie breaker with the "Lemon Heads" taking the tie and winning this evenings quiz.. Missing out on the tie break was "Another planet" who finished third with 63.5/75. Elsewhere a depleted "Chalfonts" had a rough week finishing 6th with a score of 36.5. Nothing between the ears and The Filthy Five finished 5th & 4th with scores of 40.5 and 44.5 respectively.
