Teams from Bartle Bogle Hegarty, Adam & Eve, DDB, Dare and JWT, as well as one from Campaign, battled it out for the coveted silver plate. After a fraught few rounds during which countless balls and pints were sunk, JWT and some very fresh-faced pool sharks from Kindred went head to head in the final, with the Kindred team crowned champions. The thrills continued in the men's toilets, where an abandoned ham sandwich perched on the side of the sink became a source of fascination. There was much debate over how it got there, leading one player to observe: "It was an icebreaker" - just what you need in a urinal. Diary cannot be certain it was left uneaten as the night wore on.
