It was a good mix of old-timers and up-and-comers.  We started with 8 in round 1 with a 50/50 split of seasoned players and newbies.

Team Huskers (regulars) beat out Norwegian Refugee (regulars) by one point to clinch the round.  Huskers had a brilliant plan: bring an extra person to drink all the beer so that the other two could keep a clear mind. It worked. LOL!

Huskers also won the first Bonus Beer Question, but since they had just won a bucket of beer, graciously donated some beer to Pole Position (new), the team that just missed.

And it was shaping into a sweep night when Huskers won round 2 as well, just inching out Hanzilla (regular) and Norwegian.

But finally someone different won… the 2nd Bonus Beer Question was won by Hanzilla.  They are forever grateful that I don’t deduct for spelling!

From Round 1 to Round 2, we lost 2 newby teams – Night Without Kids, Gophers – and one regular, Beer Me!.

That made round 2 a bit skimpy with only 5 teams playing.  But we got 3 more joiners for Round 3: Team Splurge, Ridiculous, and MVP.  And they brought some heat with them.

In round 3, we saw newby, Hit N Run Crew run. But all the other newbies who stayed gave it their all and were really working the ‘style points’ (17 between them).

Although the 3 regulars finished 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in the final round, it was newcomers Ridiculous who nailed the last question as a Double Up, and won the round.

I think all the newbies, learned that it is worth getting their in the beginning to have a shot at some of the prizes.

Overall points went to the 3 regulars who stayed all evening. 1st – Huskers, 2nd – Norwegian Refugee, and 3rd – Hanzilla.  Norwegian has found their groove by keeping a close race all night and scoring for 2nd at evening’s end two weeks in a row.  And Hanzilla seems to win every other week – for them, this wasn’t the winning week – so something to look forward to next week.

I think we made a lot of new friends this week, and it sure was a fun time!

I hope to see you next Thursday at the OC. Til then…

Ciao for now,

– Keith
