February Result 2019-2020 A fantastic evenings quizzing in the superb facilities afforded by the newly refurbished upstairs function room in the historic harbourside Nova Scotia pub. This was the first quiz after the 47 year interlude in the Common Market. The Quidnuncs were champion in 1971-2 and again in 1972-3.

This result means that whatever happens in March the title will be up for grabs on the last day of the season in April. Best Questions Porpoises are setting the standard here and look hard to beat. Once again no team failed to score 4 or more points on their question’s. Sheepworrying drop into last place.
