I do not read and/or use Twitter. I don’t foresee any
situation or occurrence in the future that would require me to learn how to use
Twitter. I am a firm believer in the restoration of the English language. Not
the death of it. So, needless to say, I did not present round 6 without some
personal protest. Luckily, my teams weren’t big Tweeters either. Thank you for
slaughtering this round players, whether or not it was a direct result of my
begrudgingly having to read it aloud to you all, it was a moment of disappointment
and sadness for me. BUT, WHAT A QUIZ!! Garce,
pulling out the one point difference win over The Fighting Mongooses or Mongoosi, even after not arriving until
the beginning of round 2. I am very proud of all of you. As for Venture and The Pussycats, like I said before; I’m sure you are all very smart;
it was just a night of bad questions, oh, and no, there are no Vikings in
Westeros, different show. Until next time.

I'm almost a year into this biz, and I am loving being Quizmistress at Lumpy's Downtown on Thursday and now, Huka Bar on Wednesdays. Other than trying to fry brains during pub quiz I spend my life snowboarding and frying my own brain studying science at the U. Not too shabby, eh? After moving around to a bunch of different places after high school and college (Portland, Cuba, Chile, NYC, SLC, DC) I'm back in these big beautiful mountains (I'm from here originally)!

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown or Huka Bar for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'. Not my real middle name, but it is a nickname that makes me turn my head when called. I promise not to laugh too hard when you say Africa is a country or something equally as outrageous.

HP. The big Harry Potter himself. That’s who we spent our night worshipping last night in the form of the Geeky Cauldron Harry Potter quiz extraordinaire! We had a close game, but in the end we found out who was the hairiest of the Potters in the crowd.

There were 29 teams playing in SLC at a Bar Named Sue. 29! I didn’t even know that many Potter nerds still existed. I thought we were a rare dying break like the Black Rhino. But there you all were. Shoved into nooks and crannies, playing our little hearts out. Some of you were even kind enough to share tables, which, ya know, made everyone a little nervous when we saw that many people hanging out around one table. There were so many of you that it was hard to pick bonus question winners! I loved every second of it. There weren’t as many ‘bows thrown for bonus prized as I would have liked, but then again I guess it’s better we didn’t incite a small riot without the proper magical training to stop it.

The game was a nail biter all evening, and going into the last round to determine the best of the best there was a second place tie just 2 points behind out 1st place team, Blast-Ended Skanks, You all defended your school and your magical heritage so bravely. 23 teams got 8 points on our visual round making you just as smart as Hermione in her first year. Hermione was 12 years old when she solved that puzzle though…. There weren’t as many points to be had on our Random Knowledge round. By that point a few of our teams just wanted to make themselves laugh, and they are correct in their thinking that potty humor is the funniest kind of humor. The best wrong answer of the evening came round 4. Rita Skeeter finally got the quotes from Death Eaters that she wanted, and Amycus Carrow spoke about the new “Defense” Against The Dark Arts class. Although, I thought the “bitch in pink” would also have been an acceptable answer if I had my way about it. She’s the worst.

My favorite round of the evening was Round 7 our only audio round. The honey-voiced Jim Dale crooned to us the voices of characters from the audiobooks. His Muriel voice is so delightful it brings tears to my eyes.

In the end, Voldemort was destroyed piece by piece. Every time a quizzer high-fived or woohoo’d over a correct answer he lost a bit of his soul. Harry, with all of you standing around him cast his most famous spell one more time. In the blink of a flying wand and a disintegrating wizard we had a winner. The Blast-Ended Skanks took home our cash prize of $325! The bar, in its infinite wisdom also wanted to reward our 2nd and 3rd placers, so The Team That Must Not Be Named and Your Mom’s A Whore-crux both took home fabulous little prizes as well.

You are all my horcruxes! Thank you for such an awesomely nerdy evening.No one understands me like you do. And big, huge thanks to my scorekeeper especial, Jared!! I could not have done this thing without you! 

 

HP forever!

Okay Shit On Disney, so you ridicule the hat. That's fine, but you still won. Nice work. Now you can wear the douchie hat with pride, having known that it is something that you have earned through the utilization of your extensive and quite impressive knowledge of all things random. No, but seriously; nice work. I love when you show up. And nice job to second place as well; The Mankinis. And maybe Team Team will have their day next time is they establish a more identifying moniker. Don't be afraid to identify yourselves damnit. All in all I wouldn't give these fine folks up for nothin'. Douche hat or no douche hat. Until next time.
