After one of the highest winning scores in BA Pub Quiz history in August, I wanted to make things a little trickier for the September quiz, and it would appear I overshot slightly as we ended up with probably one of (if not the) lowest. It might have been more difficult than expected, but September was wonderfully attended, with Cheese & Fernet retaining their crown and the Cat’s Whiskers improving significantly on last month’s showing to claim second place. Join us again in October – on the third Monday, as the second is a feriado – when the questions will be pitched a little more accessibly. I promise.

If I'm Not Very Much Mistaken I'm 95% Sure We're Cheese & Fernet claim the win

Quiz Busters had points deducted for playing with more than six players for a couple of rounds, while Suck It, Trebek had to leave at half time (possibly because delays on the B line of the Subte meant we kicked off rather later than we should have).
