Round 3

Question 2 - We asked where Hiram Walker & Sons is located, expecting the
  answer Windsor.  The team answer for Footloose and Firkin Free's
  empty seat was Walkerville.  This former town was amalgamated into
  Windsor long ago, but it's still a reasonable way of referring to
  the location, just as people speak of Forest Hill in Toronto today.
  Protest accepted for 1 point.

Round 4

Question 2 - For the nurse who is available for assignment on an ad hoc
  basis, "on call" is close enough.  Protest accepted, 2 points instead
  of 1 for Ian of Reach for the Tap.

Question 6 - Cardiac arrhythmia includes many types of heartbeat
  variation, not just the "chaotic, uncoordinated contractions" that
  we asked about.  However, fibrillation is indeed considered a type
  of arrhythmia, so the question sheet should have asked the QM to say
  "more specific" if this answer was given.  Since it didn't, and since
  it is not obvious to the layperson that a more specific answer should
  have been asked for, we feel that the protests should be accepted.
  1 point for Stan of Five of What?; 2 points instead of 1 for Brian of
  Unnatural Axxe and Helen of On a Roll.  On a Roll now wins by 1 point
  over Frayed Naughts.

Round 5

Question 6 - Vanilla Fudge did record a hit version of "You Keep Me
  Hangin' On" in 1967, but its best chart position was #6, and this
  round was about #1 hits.  Protest denied for Stan of Five of What?.

Question 8 - The round did not include any wording guiding players as to
  when we expected a group or singer to be given, so we are accepting the
  protest of "Michael Jackson" for the Jackson Five.  2 points instead
  of 1 for Hugh of the Firkins.
