Sure did, Thanks.:91_thumbsup:

However I must gripe that I didn't figure on the "scores on the draws" section. I can only assume that it was because the 1.5 points I totalled was 1 for turning up and half for sympathy, therefore worthy of being swept under the carpet.:default_biggrin::default_beerchug:

Don't know where you got 1 and a half from wyndham you scored 3. The lowest score was 2 and it was not you.

Another good turnout tonight and plenty of banter.  The contest was tight at the top, but the clear winner was Lulu, who will be in the chair for next week's quiz.

Thanks to all who joined in.

Thanks Steve0 for another great quiz.

For those who don't understand the previous teddy post, Lulu wanted to throw some teddies out of somewhere, I'm talking the real Lulu, the one who sung Boom bang a bang at the Eurovision song contest. Anyhow, to placate her it was agreed that at the spring NBN meet there would be a distance and accuracy teddy throwing competition.:default_biggrin:

just for Lulu to prove an answer - 

Quote

from https://wiki.lspace.org/mediawiki/Unseen_University

The Unseen University has gates of octiron, and single-minded Bledlows to perform the Ceremony of the Keys every night. The University has an octagonal lawn, roses, other plants, and compost heaps tended by Mr. Modo, the university's dwarf gardener. The buildings are of ancient stone, and contain many dark, winding corridors and small rooms, far more than the size of the grounds should allow. The unusual architecture of the building suggests that the top storeys and roof were built before the ground floors. Inside the University is the Great Hall, where the Wizard's four main meals of the day are eaten. Also noteworthy are the hundreds of paintings and busts of former Archchancellors that line the vestibule just outside the Great Hall. Other notable features are the Uncommon Room, the staffroom of the Faculty (see below); the gymnasium (which is for students to practise spells, not exercise, and - as such - is lined and protected very powerfully); the Emperor candle and the Tesseractical floor.

for details of the ceremony try this.

thank you Grendel. Ill award you an extra point and a box of tofu :default_biggrin:

I have to say, it really is quite hard setting questions,  trying to make sure the info is accurate and trying to get a balance of easyish and more taxing questions . If i get to do it again i will use two screens. My son's bedroom is like mission control he has so many screens
