Thanks to all who showed up last night!
The final top scores wound up like this:
Team Score Place
Gouda Hell 92 1
GBA 86 2
Canal Rats 85 3
Gouda Hell was team of visitors from up north who showed up for the express reason of ruining the chances of our locals. They ARE NOT invited back! (Actually, they were led by one of our hosts from another location. Tim Schifle is a good guy, and hosts the Thursday night show at the BW3 in Avon Lake. If you are ever up that way on a Thursday, stop in and play. Make sure you fold your answers when you hand them to him. He loves that.)
Great showing by the Canal Rats - an group of newcomers from West Akron and Goodyear Heights.
HONORABLE MENTION goes out to the Fearsome Foursome, another team of newbies. Last minute recounting knocked them out of the top three. It's my fault. I marked a question wrong for Team GBA that they actually answered correctly. Team FF - I offered last night to give you the same prize as third place, but Lisa at the bar told me you didn't take it. Check in with me next week and I'll take care of that!
Excellent showings by The Gooders and Team e=MC aewsome also.
Team WestSiders - Thanks for returing!
MISSED - A few teams were MIA - The Rack, Sonic Screwdriver, The Beavers, Black Adder, and The Honey Badgers. I know summer can be a busy time, but feel free to come back any Tuesday.
A WORD ABOUT THE WEEKLY HINTS - For those of you who got the hint email, or looked at the LastCallUSA.com website you saw these hints:
This Week's Hints
06/10 - 06/16
Currants, Digraph, Ginseng,
Norway, Rhode Island, The Mafia,
& Walter Skinner
Juvenile, The McCoys,
The Miracles, & Passion Pit
I may not have done a great job explaining how the hints work, and the site itself doesn't lay it out very clearly. So here is my stab at it:
1.) The HINTS are a list of answers that will be in the LastCallUSA trivia shows throughout the week.
Each night is a different set of questions.
(You could play EVERY night, through the magic of bar hopping).
2.) ONE of the hints will be an answer in our quiz on Tuesday.
3.) The HINTS are in no particular order.
4.) The NAME-THAT-TUNE hints are for the bars that are running an entire NAME-THAT-TUNE show.
If I play a name-that-tune question, it is completely separate.
If I ask a music question, it is also comepletely separate.
"So Rob," you may be asking yourself, "why in the name of all that is holy did you send out name that tune hints?"
It seems to be a computer problem.
I checked with my IT staff, and they assured me that is an ID-10t error.
They also mentioned something about a PEBKAC issue.
I hope I get these fixed before next time.
See you next week!
