That's right, if you weren't there or haven't heard already, FSITA managed a win last night at Fresno Pub Quiz. They won by a margin of two points, so congrats to them for that. Lawn Gnomes II pulled out a 10 point round 4 which means you'll be studying their topics for next week's round 2. I think we're all going to enjoy writing questions for these topics:

1. John Hughs Films
2. Star Trek
3. Dermatology
4. The IRS
5. Star Wars
6. Celebrity Chefs
7. Dog Breeds
8. U.S. Presidents
9. Pharmaceuticals (legal and illegal)
10. 80s Pop Music
11. Paleontology
12. Egyptology
13. Comic Books
14. Italian Phrases (better start brushing up)

Sooo...yeah, enjoy those and we look forward to seeing all your bright and shining faces next week. We have lots of potential things in the works including more theme nights, more teams getting a chance to run a night of pub quiz, and others. Don't forget, if you use Twitter, you can follow us: @Fresno_Pub_Quiz

Hey, we're back. It's been a long week and weekend for all of us. Ed was out of town last week for national track/field competitions with his team so Corin stepped in and graciously MC'd for us once more. Carrie and Adam have been enjoying a long weekend out of town with friends and Adam managed to forget the Lawn Gnomes' list of topics at home. He managed to contact one of their team members and get an approximate list of topics to post. So, let's get to it since we're only two days out from our next game:

1. H.R. Pufnstuf
2. Astronomy
3. Fresno History
4. Superman
5. Classic Rock
6. Entymology
7. Modern Art
8. The Beatles
9. Physics
10. Typography
11. Lost (TV Show)
12. U.S. States
13. Lord of the Rings
14. Catholicism

Study up and we'll see you this Wednesday. Also, Ed is doing the music this week and he updated our Facebook page with the hint that all the bands were local Fresno bands.
