The 9 quiz teams were De La Salle A and B, Port Rex, Buffalo Bowlers, The Dream Team, The Good The Bad & The Thirsty, Legacy, The Gypsies and the Magnificent 4.
Quizzmaster Chris Becker limited the rules to 2: Rule 1 – the quizzmaster is always right. Rule 2 – if in doubt, refer to rule 1.
Port Rex won by won point while The Gypsies fought a valiant rearguard action. Buffalo Bowlers and De La Salle B tied for follow up. A wildcard tiebreak placed De La Salle B second and Buffalo Bowlers third.
