The 2011 Lancashire v Yorkshire quiz was held today in Rainhill.

Lancashire ran out the winners by the very decisive score of 10-3. We even won Giotto's quiz consisting entirely of questions on people with a Leeds connection :)

The teams:
LANCASHIRE: Graham Barker, Pat Gibson, Dag Griffiths, Mark Kerr, Chris Quinn, Dave Rainsford*, Andrew Teale
YORKSHIRE: Dave Bill, Ian Dalziel, Diane Hallagan, Neil Macaskill, Martin ?, Barry Simmons
*loaned to Yorkshire for the final match

There were several formats for the matches.
B = Bolton quiz league set. Basically QLL/MQL format but there is a mixture of team/individual rounds and the free pass rule applies.
L = QLL/MQL format but with the free pass rule applying.
S = Mark Kerr's "summer league" style. All questions are to the team, one point per question. Questions alternate between the other teams when answered correctly, so if a team gets their question wrong they will keep getting further questions addressed to them until they get one right. This tends to keep matches close.
U = standard University Challenge-style with starters and bonuses.
Z = straight questions on the buzzer, no penalties.
Matches were 64 questions except for II and III which were 80 questions.

I. (Andrew asking, U): 135-140
II. (Neil asking, B): 72-61
III. (Martin asking, S): 37-35
IV. (Mark asking, U): 260-120
