TLC Pub Quiz 2009 – the good, the bad, and the hungover…

Well, the morning after the night before and I have a few things to report from the TLC Pub Quiz 2009 (in aid of Oak Lodge school for deaf and hearing impaired children):

1. I have a hangover. Its not a head-cracker, but its lasted out the morning and is still thriving.

2. We raised a staggering amount of £1,684.49

3. A great night was had by all, Henry made it through without fluffing his lines too much, and I think we can say the night was a resounding success.


To the business end of things, the quiz was triumphantly won by Toxic Terrapins – congratulations – followed up by a joint second place, from Spider-Pig and Fast and Loose.

Our mini quiz was won by Give me Maude, and at this point I can breathe a deep sigh of relief that I didnt have to write any of the rude team names into my summary. You know who you are, you heinous lot.

I would like to thank a few people for their support on the night:
