maybe you should spend less time thinking about the scoreboard and more time answering the questions!

Most of us don't know the answers. It also helps to know who has answered the most without having to keep scrolling back. If McManusfan has answered 6 correct answers that means he can't be caught and wins the round. I will have a look soon and do the job Happycamper should have done himself in the past 6 weeks!

I was never troubling the scorers on this one so, selfishly, wasn’t really bothered about a table :chuckle:

But thanks, Judders <ok>

Ladies and Gentlemen,

If I could have your attention for just a moment, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to someone who has truly made our quiz run smoothly and successfully. We all know that a well-organized scoreboard is crucial to keeping the excitement and competitive spirit alive throughout the event. Today, that important task was in the very capable hands of our good friend, Judders.

Judders, your dedication and attention to detail have not gone unnoticed. Updating the scoreboard might seem like a small task to some, but we know it's a job that requires accuracy, patience, and a great sense of timing. Thanks to you, everyone here has been able to enjoy the thrill of the competition without any hitches.

Your efforts have ensured that each team's progress was tracked accurately and fairly, adding to the overall enjoyment and integrity of the quiz. It's people like you, who work diligently behind the scenes, that make these events so much fun and so memorable for all of us.

So, on behalf of all the participants and organizers, I want to say a massive thank you, Judders. We appreciate all that you do, and we're grateful for the energy and enthusiasm you bring to our quizzes.

Let's give Judders a big round of applause!

Thank you.
