Further down this page you will find a link to a file containing the questions used in the final of this year's Wise Old Owls Yorkshire Quiz League Knock-out Competition

This season's "Champion of Champions"  match was staged on 26th April 2000.  The venue was the Lee Brigg Working Men's Club, St Mary's Road, Altofts, Normanton.  The contest was won by the Branch Road Inn of Greetland (Halifax).  The same team won the competition in 1999 when playing as the Travellers' Inn from Elland.  Anyway, in 2000 they defeated the New Inn of Walton, Wakefield.

The match was fairly even up to half time, with only five points separating the two teams as they went into the  break.  But in the second half the Branch stormed to victory, only missing two of their questions in the final four rounds while stealing no fewer than six of their opponents'!

The aggregate score in the match was 131.  This, coming from a possible maximum of 164, represents a strike rate of 79.9%; a very impressive proportion indeed & a slight improvement on the 1999 aggregate of 79%.
