I am writing this newsletter shortly after being stuck in the Sainsbury's parking lot with Finnbar for a couple of hours as my car battery went flat. It was an experience, to say the least. But Finnbar stuck with me throughout the whole ordeal, which is one of the many reasons why they're a Good Friend.
There's no announcements this week! Phew. Except a quick lil reminder to maybe please go and do my newsletter survey?? The closing date is this Sunday!
What's happening this week?
It's the last week of term, and so the last week of the regular schedule below before we return after the break. That being said, keep your eyes peeled for an update coming soon as to what we'll be running over the break.

What happened last week?
Friday was quiz night, and as per usual we ran an entire hour over time. A big congratulations to team Möbius genderlüp, who not only won the main quiz, but also won the bonus round too! There were so many good frog name suggestions, the highlights of which were Poisoned art frog, Love is stored in the Frogmato, Bees B. Numerous, Denim Jene, fireboy and watergirl friend, they haven't settled on their name yet but they are a warm friend, and Premature Pumpkin. You can see all the spectacular frog names and who created them on my answers power point.
The Netrunner tournament concluded this week and I promised results! Big gg goes to Finnbar, the winner of the tournament (wait, are we sure this isn't rigged??), with Amelie placing second and Hannah third. Well played! You can view the full results in this spreadsheet here, and read Finnbar's heartfelt statement on the league in the #netrunner Discord channel. Additional note: the trophy is stunning (see photo right, credit to Finnbar for its creation).
Sadly, this is the last newsletter of term... but Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you have a refreshing break away from work and enjoy (and take full advantage of) the opportunity to eat way too much!
Wash your hands, stay inside, and come play some games with us (online) <3
^ "Premature Pumpkin" (named by quiz team Exec-ute Order 66) the Super Tiger Leg Monkey Tree Frog hopes you have a nice holiday too <3
