League #8: Round 1 of 8 Report (22/1/12)
It was an interesting start to season 8 of the Forge Pub Quiz. Round 2 tonight an evil music trivia round has contributed to some shocking results!. Current league Champions "The Chalfonts" finished in 7th place 3rd from bottom with a score of 31/75. Alongside them was "The Filthy Five" who finished in 8th Place 2nd from Bottom with a score of 30.5/75. It was a good week for "Izzy Wizzy" who scored 45/75 just 1 point behind "Team Forge" in second with 46/75. "One Day" had a good start to the season too scoring 42.5/75.

League #8:Round 3 of 8 Report (5/2/12)
Another close quiz this week with the top 6 all scoring in the 40's. It was an eventful round this week which saw "Team Forge" finish last with a score of 26/75 resulting in them dropping four places in the league down from second to sixth place. This has consequently pushed "Izzy Wizzy" up to second and "One day" up to third place in the league. Victory in tonight quiz however went to the current league champions the "Chalfonts" who won with a score of 48.5/75. There win has helped bridge the gap between them and the front runners but the "Chalfonts" have got a long way to go if they want to retain there title and catch up with current league leaders "The Lemonheads" who are still top of the league.
PS: Thanks to everyone who braved the snow to take part tonight your support is always appreciated. :)
PPS: Apologies for the late update :(
League #8 Round 5 of 8 Report (19/2/12)
Another exciting contest at the Forge Quiz this Sunday night. Most teams finished in the 50's but it was the "Two Wheelers" who broke the 60 point barrier winning tonight's quiz with 61.5/75. Victory for them this week has catapulted them up 3 places in the league from 5th to 2nd.

The Filthy five had a very good week scoring 55/75 but are suffering in the league due to the week that was missed because of the snow.
League #8 Round 7 of 8 Report (5/3/2012)
Yet another close quiz at the forge this evening with tonight's quiz being won on a tie. At the end of the quiz there was nothing between "The Lemon heads" and "One Day" who both finished on 52.5/75. So it went down to the tie breaker question with "Lemonheads" coming out on top and securing there fourth win this season. Victory for them tonight has pretty much sealed the league title for them, only a no show next week can realistically lose them the title now. The same how ever cant be said for second and third place. Tonight results has resulted in more swapping and changing at the top end of the league table. "One days" second place finish has tonight see's them leapfrog over the "Chalfonts" into second and push the chalfonts down to joint third in the league with "The Two Wheelers" Then there's "Izzy wizzy" who remain on the outskirts of the prizes but cant be ruled out just yet, as a good week for them and a poor one for one of there contenders could just allow them to sneak in the back door! Whatever happens though you can read all about it here next week.
League #8: Round 2 of 8 (29/1/12)
Tonight's quiz was as close as a the Costa Concordia cruise ship got to the Italian coast! A bit too close! All but one team scored in the 50's with the winning team scoring 57.5/75. The winning score belonged to "Team Forge" winning there first quiz in a long long time! Th Lemon Heads continued there good form coming second tonight with a score of 54/75 which contributes them retaining the top spot in the league. "Izzy Wizzy" and "one day" continue there good start to the season where as current champions the "Chalfonts" and former champions the "Two wheelers" continue there sticky start to the season.
League #8: round 4 of 8 Report (12/2/12)
Round 4 of the current league witnessed one of the busiest quiz nights the Forge has ever witnessed (15 Teams Started! 13 finished!). The usual teams all featured towards the top as the results came in but it was "The lemon heads" who won tonight quiz with a score of 57.5/75. Just behind them in second was "The Chalfonts" with 56/75 and in joint third was "The "Filthy Five" and "One day" both with 53/75. "Izzy Wizzy" had a bad week scoring only 47/75 and consequently they have dropped out the top 3 from Second down to fourth in this league. This has pushed "One day" up to second and after another good week from "The Chalfonts" have managed to creep into third. Teams cannot however afford to rest on there laurels because the league is very tight and with 4 weeks to go the league title and runner up prizes could go a number of ways.
League #8 Round 6 0f 8 Report (26/2/12)
As we reach the final quarter of the league season it is looking more and more likely the "Lemon heads" will secure there 1st league title. They won tonight's quiz (There third victory this season) with a score of 54/75. In second was "One Day" with 53/75 and in third was "Izzy Wizzy" with 52/75.
Tonight's results mean a 27 point gap has opened up in the league between league leaders "the Lemon heads" and there nearest rivals "The Chalfont's" who finished fourth tonight with 51.5/75. As mentioned above it looks like the "Lemonheads" are on course to win the league but which team will finish second and third in the league is more open to debate. As four teams (The chalfonts, Two wheelers, one Day & Izzy Wizzy) are all in contention of finishing in these prize winning spots. So with two weeks to go, its still game on for all these teams.
League #8 Round 8 of 8 Report (12/3/12)
This evening seen brand new league champions crowned tonight at the Forge as the "Lemonheads" won there first league title. They did it the hardway though and had to sweat it out at the end as they only managed to finish 7th out of 8 teams tonight! So as the results came in that meant if "One Day" managed to score 31 more points more than "The Lemonheads" they would of took the league title out of there hands. As it happens though they didn't and they only managed to come second in the league and second in the quiz tonight. "The Chalfonts" won this eveings quiz, there second victory of the season, which helped them secure third place in the league ahead off "The Two Wheelers".
Thanks to all the teams who took part this season, you have helped make it one of the most exciting and closest leagues to date. Its been good to see all the regular faces who attend every week as well as a new team (Just the two of us) and some old friends in the shape of nothing between the ears. Without all you guys there would be no quiz at the Forge, so once again thank you.
Just a quick reminder the new league starts next week on sunday 18th March. So i will see you all then. Paul :)
