COMMENT This is the sort of challenge I normally dislike with all the posers coming from the current year and weddings and divorces strongly featured. These are items I choose to ignore in any paper. I have found that if I set a quiz myself, then these subjects are taboo, certainly with male contestants, and our host did suffer some mild abuse from the male sector. Nevertheless the marks attained were high, but perhaps this was down to a good sprinkling of young females in the audience. I am sure I was just unlucky on John's choice of subject on the night, and this was done to give variety to the evening and not typical. There was a good turnout and a friendly atmosphere, and I am sure there are lots of people reading this who are thinking, never mind Woz, this is the quiz night I am looking for!
