Scores and comments from the first two weeks...

Scores awarded to week 1's quiz were:

Winners:

Crofton                                 8
RAFA Vulcan Club                  8
Wanderers                            8
Golden Lion Dudes                 7
Flanagan's Army                    6

Non-winners:

Rockin' Gladiators                 8
Kippax                                 7
Leading Ladies                     7
Olde Taverners                     7
Railwaymen                         7
Featherstone Phoenix            6

Comments:

Railwaymen: Laura Trott!! (4 golds)
[This referred to the question with the answer Katherine Grainger as Britain's 'most successful' female Olympian. This is only true according to number of medals, five (and she only beats 1920s tennis player Kitty Godfree if the quality of medals is used as a tie-breaker: 1 gold, 4 silvers versus 1 gold, 2 silvers, 2 bronzes). But by the hierarchy of number of golds first, then silvers, then bronzes, Laura Trott is the answer. The generally accepted term for most medals seems to be 'most decorated', with 'most successful' used for the hierarchy method, so at best the question is ambiguous and at worst has the wrong answer.]

Flanagan's Army (playing 'B'): Bad balance on science round.
[There is some justification for the above comment, as only two questions in this round in the three Division One matches went unanswered by either team, and they were both 'B' questions.]

Rockin' Gladiators: Berwick Rangers did for us.
[The Gladiators were a point ahead with two questions to go before their opponents Crofton correctly answered the above question and both teams failed on the last question of the quiz.]

Golden Lion Dudes: O.K. Not bad.

RAFA Vulcan Club: Excellent game - good quiz questions.


Scores awarded to week 2's quiz were:

Winners:

Kippax                                  9
Flanagan's Army                    8
Golden Lion Dudes                 8
RAFA Vulcan Club                  8
Wanderers                            7

Non-winners:

Leading Ladies                       8
Rockin' Gladiators                  8
Last Orders                           7
Olde Taverners                      7
Railwaymen                          7

Comments:

Olde Taverners: See below!!
Flanagan's Army: Apart from the typo on written round.
[Division One's Round 5 had a question about Jupiter's four Galilean moons, but the answer sheet had answers to Division Two's question about the top four countries at Rio 2016.]

RAFA Vulcan Club: V good, fair questions - good game. Thank you, Railway. Great hospitality.
Railwaymen: Our opponents were sure 'The Avengers' was actually called 'Avengers Assemble'.
[It was apparently called 'Marvel Avengers Assemble' in the British Isles. RAFA weren't given the 2 points, unlike the Railwaymen, who had merely guessed the title from the Joanna Lumley link.]

Kippax: An excellent quiz.

Neil.

Railwaymen                          6

Comments:

RAFA Vulcan Club: V good quiz. Good standard. Well done, Last Orders.

Flanagan's Army: OK quiz.

Railwaymen: Largest cathedrals - area or volume?
[There is a page on the internet which gives Liverpool, St Paul's and Lincoln as England's three largest cathedrals without specifying what is being measured (though it may well be the same in area or volume); perhaps this was the source for the question. It's not easy to find a definitive answer whatever the measurement used. Wikipedia's Lincoln Cathedral page gives St Paul's, York Minster and Lincoln as England's three largest in area (with no mention of Liverpool). But their Largest Church Buildings page gives the largest in area (with the same ranking in volume) as Liverpool Anglican, St Paul's, Westminster Cathedral, Winchester, Ely and Westminster Abbey (with no mention of York Minster or Lincoln). The page does, however, warn that the concept of largeness is a difficult one to define and measure accurately.]

Comments:

Featherstone Phoenix: Beaten by a Shakespearean tragedy!!!
[Phoenix lost the Shakespeare round 8-0 and the match by 8 points.]
Railwaymen: Britain's first AONB - tricky choice between Mendips & Quantocks, especially as correct answer is Gower Peninsula! Had 'Woman's Hour' last week - but at least we got it right this week.
​[The Quantocks were England's first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.]

Crofton: Questions too straightforward.

RAFA Vulcan Club: Excellent quiz. Well played, Flanagan's.

G-Fivers                             6
Wanderers                          6
Little 'Un                             2

Comments:

Railwaymen: Most recent pop question was 10 years ago.
[Not that the Railwaymen claim to know anything about pop in the last 10 years...]

Rockin' Gladiators: Best quiz reader I ever met.
[I gather this was meant ironically, but the Little 'Un quiz reader was unnamed on the sheet.]

Golden Lion Dudes: Good questions.

Kippax: Good.


Scores awarded to week 8's quiz were:

Winners:

Featherstone Phoenix        8
Golden Lion Dudes            8
​Railwaymen                     7
Wanderers                       7
​​

RAFA Vulcan Club            8
Kippax                            7
Olde Taverners                7
Flanagan's Army              5

Comments:

Flanagan's Army: CR*P!!!
Railwaymen: Good quiz, though we were perhaps favoured by a certain imbalance in the questions.
[This is borne out by the figures: of the team questions unanswered by either side, 4 went to Flanagan's and 2 to Railway; the equivalent figures over the same questions in the other two Division One matches totalled 5 and 1 respectively.]

Featherstone Phoenix: Good quiz played in right spirit.
RAFA Vulcan Club: Good quiz. Well played, Phoenix.

Golden Lion Dudes: Not bad.
Kippax: Good.

Scores awarded to week 9's quiz were:

Winners:

Crofton                                  9
Olde Taverners                       9
Railwaymen                            8
Golden Lion Dudes                  5

Non-winners:

RAFA Vulcan Club                   8
Flanagan's Army                     5
Leading Ladies                        5
Little 'Un                                5

Comments:

Flanagan's Army: Unbalanced questions in 2nd half.
[In that second half, Flanagan's with B received four unanswered team questions to A's two. And in the other Division One match, B received five and A three unanswered questions. So in total there was indeed a certain imbalance of 9-5 in A's favour.]

Leading Ladies: Bit obscure (Round 10).
[The subject of Round 10 was Animals.]

Little 'Un: Could be easier.

Golden Lion Dudes: Just OK.
Rockin' Gladiators: Ditto.

RAFA Vulcan Club: Good quiz. Well played, Railway.
Railwaymen: Ditto. Good sporting atmosphere! Wish they were all like this.

Winners:

Olde Taverners                      8
Wanderers                            8
Flanagan's Army                    6

RAFA Vulcan Club                   8
Little 'Un                                6
Leading Ladies                       5

Comments:

Rockin' Gladiators: Cr*p.
Leading Ladies: Carol says "The standard has slipped. Badly worded questions and questions without too much scope."
[This apparently refers to questions which don't include additional information to narrow down possible answers, so perhaps really means questions with too much scope.]

Golden Lion Dudes: Some stinkers, mate.

Olde Taverners: A good quiz, played in a good spirit.
RAFA Vulcan Club: V good. Well played, OCT. Good hospitality.

Neil.

Scores awarded to week 11's quiz were:

Winners:

Crofton                              8
Flanagan's Army                 8
Leading Ladies                    8
RAFA Vulcan Club                8
Wanderers                          7.5

Non-winners:

Kippax                                8
Railwaymen                        7
Golden Lion Dudes               6
Last Orders                         6

Below are the comments, a lot of which referred to the question "Who has won the most Wimbledon Championships in the Open era?" with the answer given as Pete Sampras. This answer implied men's singles was being referred to (and even then, Roger Federer ties his total of 7); if women's singles are included, or if all doubles and singles are included, the answer is Martina Navratilova (20 titles including 9 singles).

Kippax: Very good. Pete Sampras? Round 7 (A4). Navratilova? Doubles?

Leading Ladies: Round 7 - Q A4 - Should have specified singles - Navratilova has won more when you include doubles/mixed doubles.

Flanagan's Army: Not too bad. (Tennis question stupid.)
Featherstone Phoenix: "Not really"

Last Orders: Martina Navratilova was a very good tennis player.
RAFA Vulcan Club: Brilliant game - superb atmosphere. Thank you, Last Orders.

Wanderers: (Knocked half a point off for very dubiously worded question about number of Wimbledon championships!)
Railwaymen: Some questions in Xmas round only loosely related to it (and both film questions went to B), but have a happy one anyway!

Golden Lion Dudes: Not bad.


Scores awarded to the quiz for the first round of the Knockout Cup were:

Winners:

Featherstone Phoenix         8
Wanderers                        8
Railwaymen                      7.5
Flanagan's Army                7
Golden Lion Dudes             7

Non-winners:

Crofton                             8
Kippax                              8
RAFA Vulcan Club              8
Little 'Un                           6

Comments:

RAFA Vulcan Club: Well played, Railway. Best of luck in Cup.
Railwaymen: Coconut meat??
[Referring to the question "Copra is the dried meat of what?"]

Golden Lion Dudes: Mr S Scott says wow.

Featherstone Phoenix: Very good.
Kippax: Very good.


Scores awarded to week 12's quiz were:

Winners:

Olde Taverners                  8
Featherstone Phoenix         7
Rockin' Gladiators              7

Non-winners:

RAFA Vulcan Club               8
Kippax                               7
Last Orders                        7
Railwaymen                       7
Little 'Un                           6

Comments:

RAFA Vulcan Club: Excellent quiz. Well, please note: tissue - histology, cytology - cells.
[This refers to the question "The medical speciality histology is concerned with what?" with the answer given as cells. Although cells are mentioned, tissues are indeed the prime feature of definitions of histology.]

Featherstone Phoenix: Good quiz.
Railwaymen: Great Chase-like clue-in-the-question about Hindley Earnshaw (i.e. Wuthering Heights). But welcome clues are often withheld, e.g. "Who did Lord Astor famously deny knowing?" without even a year.
[The year would have been 1963 and the answer is Mandy Rice-Davies who, on being told Astor denied knowing her, famously replied "Well, he would, wouldn't he?"]

Scores awarded to week 13’s quiz were:

Winners:

Crofton                                     8
Kippax                                      8
Last Orders                               8
Wanderers                                8
Olde Taverners                          7

Non-winners:

RAFA Vulcan Club                       9
Rockin’ Gladiators                       8
Railwaymen                               7

Comments:

Kippax: Question B3 individuals Round 3, 1.85 kilometres not metres? Typo mistake?
[This was the question where the answer ‘nautical mile’ was defined as ‘1.852 metres’, which should have read ‘1.852 kilometres’ or ‘1,852 metres’.]

Rockin’ Gladiators: ??? Round 3 B3 – wrong data?

Railwaymen: Our reader noticed the (kilo)metre error, fortunately! I suppose Harry Enfield did create Mr C-W, but Jon Glover played him.
[Our opponents seemed unsure what was wanted, but correctly assumed it was Enfield, who actually played Greyson but is associated with the name Mr Cholmondley-Warner as he used it when addressing his boss.]
[The reader, David Leigh, noted a time of 47½ minutes for the whole quiz, having had what is perhaps the tiny advantage of both teams being one player short.]

RAFA Vulcan Club (home to Wanderers): Belting quiz. Excellent spirit.


Scores awarded to week 14's quiz were:

Winners:

Golden Lion Dudes                      9

Non-winners:

Wanderers                                 7
Railwaymen                               6
Little 'Un                                    5

Comments:

Railwaymen: Andrew Jackson not correct.
[In round 5, the four US Presidents who succeeded assassinated Presidents included Andrew Jackson as an answer when it should have been Andrew Johnson. Both Lincoln and Kennedy were succeeded by a Johnson, which is one of several coincidences between them, e.g. each was shot while with his wife and another couple of whom the man was injured.]

Last Orders: Where is Penang?
[I can’t remember what question this refers to, but Penang is a state in the part of Malaysia that is on the Malay Peninsula.]


Scores awarded to week 15’s quiz were:

Winners:

Crofton                                        8
Flanagan’s Army                           7

RAFA Vulcan Club                          7
Rockin’ Gladiators                          7
Leading Ladies                              6

Comments:

Rockin’ Gladiators: Proverbs obscure.
Golden Lion Dudes: The link was terrible.

Leading Ladies: Narcissus + Trump – Connection?
Kippax: Link round, question 2 and 4?
[The Donald Trump link answers included Narcissus (unofficial diagnosis of Narcissistic Personality Disorder), Wall Street Journal (proposed Mexican wall) and Pussy Galore (use of former word in advice regarding women).]

Crofton: Good quiz, nice friendly atmosphere.
Little ‘Un: Good quiz, good opponents, well deserved win.

RAFA Vulcan Club (away to Railwaymen): Good game – great atmosphere + hospitality. Thank you.

Neil.

Scores awarded to the quiz for the Cup and Plate quarter-finals were:

Winners:

Crofton                                    9
Flanagan’s Army                       8
Wanderers                                7

Non-winners:

Little ‘Un                                  9
Golden Lion Dudes                    7
Olde Taverners                         7
Kippax                                     6

Comments:

Crofton: Good game. Nice people.
Little ‘Un: Enjoyed quiz.

Incidentally, the draw between Last Orders and Featherstone Phoenix (won by the former on a tie-break) was initially reported as a 78-78 draw, and the Ponty & Cas pointed out that it nearly broke the record for the highest-scoring FTQL draw. In fact, it was only a 70-70 draw – still impressive, though, especially as the Last Orders only had two players.


Scores awarded to week 17's quiz were:

Winners:

Flanagan's Army                        8
Olde Taverners                          8
Golden Lion Dudes                     7
Wanderers                                7

Non-winners:

Leading Ladies                          8
RAFA Vulcan Club                      8
Featherstone Phoenix                7
Last Orders                              7
Little 'Un                                  6

Comments:

Flanagan’s Army: Repeat questions! Planet tipped on side and Black Sabbath!

Leading Ladies: Interesting quiz. Unusual categories.

Olde Taverners: A very good quiz. Nerve-wracking finish.
RAFA Vulcan Club: Terrific game. What the FTQL is about. Well done, Tavern.

Wanderers: Lovely friendly game!
Featherstone Phoenix: Good quiz despite the result!!!


Scores awarded to week 18's quiz were:

Winners:

Crofton                                    8
RAFA Vulcan Club                      8
Wanderers                                8
Golden Lion Dudes                    6

Non-winners:

Railwaymen                              8
Kippax                                      7
G-Fivers                                    5
Little 'Un                                   5

Comments:

G-Fivers: Answers need crosschecking. Question 1 Rd 2 wrong!! Rd 3 Question 4, two possible answers Maryland & Kentucky.
[G-Fivers are presumably referring firstly to the A question which they got wrong and which asked “What is the anatomical name of the triangular bone at the base of the spine?”, the answer being “Coccyx” – this seems perfectly correct and unambiguous. The other question asked “Which chicken dish is named after a US state?”, the answer being “Chicken Maryland”. Kentucky Fried Chicken has probably never been described as a “dish” before, but perhaps the question needed some extra information to remove any trace of ambiguity.]

Little ‘Un: Same as below. Questions worded badly.
Leading Ladies: Too many literature questions this week!
[There was a round on opening words of novels, and individual questions on Larkin, Hornby and Dickens, so perhaps a bit more literature than usual.]

RAFA Vulcan Club: Thank you for a sporting game, Last Orders.

Crofton (v Kippax): Good game. Nice people.

Featherstone Phoenix: Good quiz.


Scores awarded to week 19's quiz were:

Winners:

Flanagan’s Army                      8

Non-winners:

RAFA Vulcan Club                    7
Little 'Un                                 6
Featherstone Phoenix              5

Comments:

Last Orders: Is not a lance corporal lower in rank than a major?
[The question asked for the rank below major (surely implying immediately below), which was correctly given on the sheet as captain. A lance corporal is further down, immediately below corporal.]

G-Fivers: Cr*p.
Little ‘Un: Cr*ppish.

RAFA Vulcan Club: Excellent performance – well played, Flanagan’s.


Scores awarded to week 20's quiz were:

Crofton                                    8

Little ‘Un: Yet again, too much literature.
[Half of the ‘Glittering Prizes’ round was about literature awards, most of the ‘Initials’ round (identifying names that initials stand for) involved writers, and there were a couple of individual questions about literature, so again perhaps a touch more than normal.]

Railwaymen: Being ultra-pedantic, J K Rowling is simply Joanne Rowling – the K(athleen) comes from her gran.

RAFA Vulcan Club: Good game. Excellent atmosphere. Well done, Wanderers.
Wanderers: Great game with lovely opponents.

Crofton (v Leading Ladies): Good game. Nice company.

Neil.

Comments:

Golden Lion Dudes: OK.
Leading Ladies: Shouldn’t have: “Allow close answers”! Too open to interpretation.
[This referred to the round with the subject ‘What is it? Allow close answers!’. In defence of the setter, allowing close answers is what we do, or should do, regularly. E.g. in that round the answer to ‘What are Matins, Vespers and Compline?’ was given as ‘Church services’, but if someone were to answer ‘Catholic offices’ that is not only close to the given answer but actually more precise, yet might be marked wrong as ‘Not what it says on the sheet’.]

Olde Taverners: Awful last round!
Railwaymen: Agree with above – they are too hard without the clue (e.g. Which Prime Minister?) that Div 2 will be getting.
[This referred to the ‘Whose Last Words?’ round, where Div 1 had nothing more than the last words themselves.]

Little ‘Un: Too much literature hidden within questions.
[As well as a Poetry round, there were a couple of individual questions on literature. Not that any of this was particularly ‘hidden’, although the above ‘What is it?’ round did include a question about the Dolly Varden, a hat named after a character in Dickens’s Barnaby Rudge.]

Comments:

Last Orders: Now[?] fortunente [fortunately?] it was all over by Round 10.
[This was the Sporting Terms round, where the two questions unanswered by either team both went to Last Orders as ‘A’.]

[Referring to the fact that the winner posts the quiz sheet, though this is of course not the first time Little ‘Un have won a match.]

Featherstone Phoenix: RAFA were very sporting over one question.

[Flanagan’s beat the Railwaymen 88-87.]

Score awarded to the quiz for the Handicap Cup semi-finals was:

Winners:

Little ‘Un                          7

Comments:

Little ‘Un: Enjoyable quiz.
Leading Ladies: Cerise is pink! Did we really need first name of Monkman?
[The question asked what colour cerise is a type of, and the answer was given as red. Chambers Dictionary gives it as ‘a light and clear purplish red’ and the Oxford Dictionary of English as ‘a light clear red’. So, red does seem the most correct answer (literally, of course, it’s the French for ‘cherry’). Perhaps ‘primary colour’ could have been specified, although that reduces the possibilities to a very small number. Eric Monkman was a star of the last series of University Challenge and his first name was of course not seen on the caption in front of him nor heard when he buzzed for a starter.]
