End of Season Friendly Quiz

Winners: The Prodigals

Runners Up: Ethel Rodin

Third place: Compulsory Mantis Shrimp

The Prodigals just got the better of Ethel Rodin (by 1.5 points) to win the evening's quiz and pick up the wine.

Before that Clive Berry (once skipper of the Prodigals) joined us to present all the season's trophies and give us some insights into the genesis of the super quizzing machine that the Prodigals have become (or at least that's what Anne-Marie told me to say).

25 years on and they've done it!

As for the 'Question of the Season' all 10 WithQuiz teams voted early in the evening for their favourite from amongst the 30 'Questions of the Week' that had been nominated throughout the season.  By a short head the History Men beat the Charabancs into second and third places.  All is revealed in the table below.

So that's it until late September when it all starts over again.  Ciao!
