December Quiz Results

The results for the December quiz are listed below.  Competition was tough with only 4 points separating the top 6 teams.  Congratulations to Fox Family and The Players on winning by a nose.

There were a couple of answers that made us laugh – no bonus point to the team who suggested that quizmaster Ann is the current Poet Laureate.  We also enjoyed the thought that the Harvard mathematician and song writer is called Loggo Rhythm.
