Night before Friday bank holiday = a few folk in and hot competition at the quiz. The main force and eventualy winners were THE BRAW LADS AND LASSES who sewed things up with a belting 40 points.
Second place team were the BAWBAGS and both teams were handily situated adjacently so one photo covered first and second:
David from the Bawbags eventually got the chance to putt for scratchcard glory but missed both shots and we have another rollover. Three scratchies next week – potential £30,000 or thereabouts to be won!
These two awesome scratchies plus one more next Thursday. See you there!
The Jenny Ha’s jackpot rises by £20 every week and the asked-for total on the dart board gets lower.
This week the challenge was to hit 60 with three darts. Catherine from the TEAM WITH NO NAME came close but for the second week in a row it was baw-hair stuff and the jackpot survives until next Monday (Easter Monday) when we’ll be playing for £80 and the target on the board will be 50 points with 3 darts.
Thanks to Grum for supplying the last-minute emergency darts!
David from GOOGLE EYED showed the world the exact meaning of a dance-off on Monday night at the Reverie.
He humped, banged and grinded his way through the occasion to leave the onlookers breathless and dazed, like the aftermath of a good shag.
The other bloke, from THE BAYES FACTOR, never stood a chance
That was the easy bit. David then steeled himself for the £100 Golden Putt which had moved another two floorboards closer to the hole. David took his time and sent the ball unerringly into the jaws of victory.
The Newsroom is a sweet bar with loads of booze for sale on Leith Street. In case you don’t know, Leith St is not in Leith: its in the city centre at the East End of Princes St and the bar is opposite the front door of the St James Centre.
Anyway, ultimate winners were the NEWSROOM NEWBIES who stay out somewhere weird like Juniper Green. They told me that Juniper Green is the oldest town in Edinburgh or something like that. If I was to research it properly it might turn into a new quiz fact.
So the Newbies took the bubbly and second place got the crat of beer. Not bad work for WARD 6 who came in late after a hard shift with the nutters.
The chap from the winning team ended up having a putt for the cash (ten thousand pounds) but missed, so we’ll roll it over and play for £20,000 next week.
See you next Thursday night at 9pm for those big bucks!
Ahh, the old Tolkein in my sleep Hobbit joke. What I really like about this particular entry is the fact that the team have taken the care and the effort to write (“pun on talking”) in brackets in case I’m too thick to get it…
… and then decided to score it out. What? In case it confuses me?
