A Big Thank You to All Quizzers!

A Huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out for the Quiz of Champions last night! It was a great night and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did!

Congratulations to our new champions, Shark! The Herald Angels Sing! They won after a tense tie break with sweeties, Another Mediocre Effort...did you know that the word f*ck is said 246 times in Goodfellas? Well, the winning team did! Well done you kids!

2nd place went to Not On Normal Courtyard Exercises, 3rd place to John Doe's Absurdly Relevant Something-or-Other and the coveted Booby Prize went to another of my favorite teams, Mah Dynasty!! Enjoy the board game kids!!

Last night's pot of $230 has been donated to the Portland Hotel Society:

We have now raised $5146.45 and $14,126.71 in total! Wow, I'm so thankful to all of you who have come out and supported this!!

Apologies to those who showed up and weren't able to play along...this was a special night for some special teams! You'll get your chance when we return on October 18th!

So farewell friends until October 18th!! Have a great few weeks and a great Thanksgiving!! Thanks for everything!

Quiz Nights Hiatus

Please note that Quiz Mistress Karen will be taking a break from Monday Quiz Nights for the next couple of weeks.

There will be no Quiz Night's on September 27, October 4 and October 11.

See you all on Monday, October 18.

PS: Thanks to Julie for her email below:
Karen and Nigel:

On behalf of Kyle, Owen and Rob, I wanted to thank both of you (and your terrific staff) for a great evening on Monday. The drinks and appie were delicious and having the question that involved the naming the ingredients in the cocktail was absolutely inspired.

We really do appreciate how much work you both put into putting the quiz together as well as the support you give a variety of worthwhile charities. You guys are a class act!

Enjoy your quizless Mondays for the next few weeks. Rob and Owen will be out of town, but Kyle and I look forward to seeing you in mid-October.

You guys rock (like a Beatles song).
