PUB QUIZ TONIGHT:
Wednesday, September 3
Join us for John Dingleyâ€™s mid-week torture session: the Specialist Pub Quiz. Itâ€™s governed by a theme or single topic (as opposed to Sunday nightâ€™s general interest quiz).The details: 25 questions, 2 points per question (answered correctly), teams of up to four. Charge? Free, of course! Thatâ€™s how a pub quiz should be. Participants get a point for their participation, and those participation points accrue each week and are added to your final quiz score. So if you score 38 and this is your 10th quiz, you have a 48. Why is this important? When someone scores a 50, they win the pot! As John puts up to $40 each week in, it can become quite a bit.
