In this week in-between Grand Championship Grand Prix nights at Our Home Away of Hitch, it was not a night without consequence! The Fighting Mongooses returned to defend their Golden VHS at our big brother location, while Lt. Dance's Comey!, our winner at Hitch #100 also returned for the 121st edition of Trivia Club at Hitch!

 Trivia Classic  ended with a strong lead for the Fighting Mongooses, while Wookiee of the Year under a new identity... Wookiee Crisp, was second, after one! The bar team had a four point lead on Comey! (said in the style of "Newman!"), meaning this intimate field was in for a tight fight!

 Game Show Games  saw Comey! catch the first TOP TEN of the second round in Countdown Takedown, while Wookiee Crisp grabbed eight points, and the Fighting Mongooses added an extra six points. Then in Survey Says it was the Mongooses with a strong eight points, while Comey! grabbed six points, and Wookiee Crisp nabbed two! Finally in Combo Breakdown, The Fighting Mongooses entered the third Game Show Game with the lead for the seventh straight week and their eighth consecutive Breakdown! Even with the lead they were tripped up, and only took one point, leaving Wookiee and Comey to battle it out... and leaving Wookiee Crisp as the last team standing with an extra NINETEEN POINTS!

 Tri-Pardo  then left it all on the table, as Comey! rolled for fourteen points on the first question, the Fighting Mongooses rolled for TWENTY points on the second question, and Wookiee Crisp rolled for eighteen on the third! This meant that 52 points were on the he line in round three! Hitting for the triple and leaping towards 90 plus points before the Finale, were the Fighting Mongooses! Answering the second and third questions correctly, but being caught with the first, were both Wookiee and Comey! This left both teams with 24 extra points!

This also meant that heading into the  Finale , the Mongooses had a lead on the field, and Wookiee Crisp had a lead on Comey! thanks in large part to that Combo Breakdown! The Fighting Mongooses wagered enough to stay ahead of Wookiee, even if they were to go all in, which Wookiee Crisp did, while Comey! saw that there best bet in third was to wager against the field and only bet a single point on the Finale question! With the field getting caught on the Finale question, that indeed was what Comey! needed...

Finishing as runners up were the Fighting Mongooses with 41 points, but now TWO-TIME GOLDEN VHS CHAMPS at Hitch, Lt. Dance's... COMEY! on their 99th Trivia Club appearance overall! Well done Anthony, one of only five people to win the Golden VHS solo at Trivia Club!
