They finished tonight's quiz with a score of 46/75, just 4.5 points ahead of "Just the two of us" in second and 7.5 points ahead of "The Chalfonts" in third. "Energy saver Light bulbs" formerly known as one day scored there worst ever score of 16.5/75, in there defence however they were a depleated team. Everyone else tonight scored in the 30's in what was generally commented on as a bit of a tough quiz this week!
League Week 3 of 8 report (24/6/12)
An unusual but well attended quiz this week considering England was playing Italy in the Euro 2012 quarter final. So thank you all for putting me before England!
Back to the quiz and "The chalfonts" tonight managed to do something that England didn't and that was win! And boy they won in style scoring 59/75 just pipping "just the two" of us and The "Two wheelers" to the post both scoring 56.5/75 and finishing joint second. As for the league with the absence of "The filthy Five" this evening, it meant we would have a new league leader and that honour goes to "Just the two of us" who lead the table for the very first time. They are closely followed by "The chalfonts" in second and "The Two Wheelers" in third.
I'm sure you have all worked it out but just to let you know everything is back to normal with the quiz next week as England failed to progress in Euro 2012.
League Week 5 of 8 Report (8/7/12)
It was a night for the underdogs tonight as "Izzy Wizzy Lets Get Quizzy" won there very first Forge Sunday night Quiz! They did it in style too scoring 56.5/75 and beating second placed "Just the Two of Us" by 1.5 points and third placed "Quizzy Rascals" by 9 points. The normal front runners all had a rough week this week. Last weeks winners "The Energy Saver Light Bulbs" managed to come in last with a score of 30.5/75! "The Chalfonts", "Two Wheelers", and "Nothing between the ears" all finished in the mid to low 40's!
As for the league "Just the Two of us" increase there lead at the top to 9 points over "The chalfonts" and "The Chalfonts" lead over third placed "Two Wheelers" has increased to 22. As for the rest of the field they appear to be slipping off the pace a bit, but with 3 weeks to go until the end of the season and annual summer holidays possibly disturbing a teams attendance things could still change!
League Week 7 of 8 Report (22/7/12)
The penultimate week of league 10 see "just the Two of us" winnng tonight's quiz with a score of 58.5/75 and regaining the top spot in the league by a clear 6.5 points, ahead of there nearest rivals "The Chalfonts". They Finished tonight's quiz in fourth with a score of 51/75. The "Two Wheelers" only managed to finish 6th tonight with a score of 48/75 but look set to secure a third place finish in the league as they are too far ahead of fourth place and too far behind second place. "The Filthy Five" finished 2nd tonight of 57.5/75 just missing out on 1st by 1 point and "Izzy Wizzy" finished3rd with 53/75. Finally "Energy saver lightbulb" had a rough week (Not there roughest) finished last with a score of 29/75.
League Week 2 of 8 (17/6/12)
"The Filthy five" continued there good form winning there third quiz on the bounce with a score of 58/75 and just like last week "Just the two of us" came second and "The Chalfonts". came third scoring 53.5 and 52.5 out of 75 respectively. Consequently with these results there is no change in the top three in the league. The teams just south of third place (Izzy WIzzy, Two Wheelers & Nothing between the ears) all had a much improved week compared to last. The biggest improvement came from "Energy saver light bulbs" who scored 51.5/75 this week compared to 16.5/75 last week! I Think the return of mum was a big help this week!
League Week 4 of 8 Report (1/7/12)
It was a close contests this week at the Forge quiz with this weeks winners "Energy Saving light bulb" winning the quiz with a score of 55.5/75 just half a point of second placed "The Chalfonts" who scored 55 and 1 point ahead of current league leaders "Just the two of us" Despite coming only third this week "just the two of us" remain top of the league just one point ahead of second placed "The Chalfonts" and 21 points ahead of third placed "Two Wheelers.
So at the half way point of league 10 does it look like we will be having a two horse race or will the teams on the fringe such as "The Two Wheelers", "Nothing between The Ears", "Izzy Wizzy" And "The Filthy Five" put a string of good results together in the second half of the season and push for a top three place to win a league prize.
