Quiz cancelled tonight owing to Phillies playoff game; quiz scheduled as normal tormorrow night

Wednesday, October 5, 7:30pm
12 Steps Down
9th & Christian Sts.
Subject Round: CANCELLED

Owing to the insatiable greed-lust of MLB, Ted Turner's basic cable channels and their advertisers, we didn't know what time this game was going to be played until this morning.  As the game is slated to start at 6pm, and playoff games run long, I'm not going to start this quiz after 9, particularly following what will either be people celebrating moving to the NLCS or worrying about Game 7.  Note that the NLCS schedule would knock out one Draught Horse quiz as well.

I'll be watching the Phils, hope you folks have fun doing the same.

Thursday, October 6, 9pm
The Draught Horse
Broad St. & Cecil B. Moore Ave.

In other news the spelling bee went quite well on Friday night and we'll be doing those semi-regularly, about once/month.  I will be alerting people to those here and in person at quizzes.  We were a little worried about the mechanics of running the thing but it went rather smoothly, in part thanks to the general cooperation of the Draught Horse crowd.  It was great to see some quiz regulars there as well!
