The Girls march on in a high-scoring evening as every away team wins

2 stalwarts (Mike O'Brien and Ivor Cartmill) notch up 'perfect' 8 2s

The Results

Albert Park slipped further losing at home to Albert for whom Mike O'Brien scored his first ever 'perfect' 8 2s

Electric Pigs down to 3 men just failed at home against Charabancs of Fire

History Men lost a high scoring match at home to the Napier Girls despite Ivor (like Mike above) getting a straight set of 8 2s

The Men TCH lost at the Parrs Wood to the Opsimaths whilst the rest of the pub decided that a home defeat at the hands of Croatia was more interesting

X-Pats dropped the points playing at home to Ethel Rodin

The Paper

Snoopy's Friends set this week.  What a surprise!!  A real populist - and popular - paper from Snoopy's.  Loads of approbation (that's AP-probation, Tony) from all venues.  As a result we had our highest scoring evening so far this season with an average aggregate of 76.2 points per match.  Some feedback:

Mary (Albert): "Very enjoyable quiz"

Kieran (Girls): "Great quiz QM'd by Tony.  Many thanks to Snoopy's.  Never more than a couple of points in it until half way through the last round.  A thoroughly enjoyable evening."

Roddy (Ethel): "Overall not a bad quiz"  (praise indeed from Ethel!!)

The Question of the Week
