When settings dates for this season, November proved to be the trickiest month with no offers of a venue until very late in the month, as late as we could possibly have left it in fact!
In the end, Jane O'Connor and Pulford saved the day and organised a venue at Marford Community Centre just over the border into North Wales!
It was a tricky night to change countries due to the ever-increasing cold, frost and fog. Certainly my North Rode team had to set off very early to get there (I think it was still Summer when we left) but the trip was well worth it as North Rode ran out winners on the night with 44.5 points.
Half points only were allowed for a Nadine Dorries related question as to what subject she wanted to talk about whilst cluttering up the jungle on "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here", the answer given being "Late Term Abortion" with "Abortion" only getting you half!
Upton were only a point behind in 2nd with Peckforton & Beeston 3rd with 42 points.
Two teams couldn't make it due to previous commitments / weather / motorway congestion etc, they being Warmingham and Croft, so they are both awarded the same score as the lowest scoring team on the night as is usual.
An excellent supper of baked potatoes with various fillings was provided along with some cakes afterwards in a venue that was happily very warm given the plummeting temperatures outside.
Many thanks to Jane and all the Pulford team, plus Gill the "Question Mistress" who did a sterling job.
