Uh, oh. Now we have seven - just one more than the maximum team of six.

I'm more than happy to stand down, if that makes life easier for everyone. As it is, I've got a flippin long drive ahead of me later on that evening - so would have been clock watching and drinking soft drinks in any event.

If anyone else drops out during the course of the day, I'll come, to maintain numbers. If everyone else can make it, I'll bow out.

Possibly till next time....

Bugger, the team has been decimated just as I was replying to Gill. Sorry you can't make it tonight mpfg and many thanks, the ever-flexible dickp, for stepping in/out as required. I plan to be there early to bag a table. See youse all later.

Aw sorry everyone, hope I haven't spoiled things. My non-attendance can't now be helped I'm afraid.

Hum, a so-so showing from the Norwonders tonight, flashes of genius notwithstanding. Well, you can't win em all. (But why not??!!)

It was all our fault - the gamblers on our side of the table fecklessly disregarded Nanazola's sage advice to go cautiously and were wiped out on the last round! :o We won't do that again!

Ah, kind of you G but we'd already lost by that stage. For me our downfall was overruling Roz in the Aniston/McDowell debate!

Indeed it has dp. For me, it's on account of zumba taking up Thursday evenings (8.15-9.15)but I'm prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice. How about everyone else?

I've come to the sad realisation that I'm actually rubbish at pub quizzes, so am going to relinquish my place on the team! :lol: Who wants it?

With Paul Partridge having his so-cheesy-it's-Dairyleasy New Year's Eve pub quiz at the Grape & Grain, I thought it might be time to revive the Norwonders! Anyone up for it?
Stephen B we have first dibs on you!

I'm not sure what our plans are yet (Graham is very lastminute.com!), but keep us posted on this, please!

I know, it does seem a bit soon to be planning this when, let's face it, the party of the year might be in the offing - but as NYE can be a bit of a letdown I thought this would be a good Plan B!
