Quiz Night 2018
We had a sell-out for this year's Quiz Night with 15 tables booked in advance and sadly we had to turn people away in the last week. It is really great to see so many people supporting our events and is a tribute to Spike and Erica Fairhurst's hard work in putting together the questions and acting as Quiz Master for the night. There was barely room to move in the village hall and the competition was fierce with a race for the finish.
In the end the "KFC Delivery Team" won with 80.5 points, only 2.5 ahead of second placed "Tequilla Mockingbirds" who in turn were only 1.5 points ahead of third placed "Saga Louts".
We had some innovative table decorations this year with train sets and campfires and Mad Hatters but the prize for the best dressed table went to "Pyeong Silchang 2018" who had a model ski run laced by pine trees in the centre of their table. Well done everyone and thank you for joining in the fun.
As always, the questions were challenging but the first round in which we were asked to choose whether a statement was made by the President of the United States or Buddy-the Christmas Elf was quite concerning as many of the teams failed to spot the difference!
Our thanks go to all the volunteers who helped with the event and also to many of the competitors who stayed on to help clear up the tables and chairs - that was so much appreciated!!
Quiz Night 2017
The Quiz Night this year was well supported with 12 tables being squeezed into the village hall. A fun night was enjoyed by all under the able leadership of Spike and Erica Fairhurst who had prepared 10 rounds of challenging questions interspersed with a few fun rounds of spice tasting, world flags and significant events through the past 20 years! The winning team was ‘The North Korean Hit Parade’ with an amazing score of 121 over the 13 rounds (that was only 19 questions wrong over the entire evening!)
Runners up places were more tightly contested with 4 more teams scoring over 100 points but ‘Peppa’s Puppets’ just managed to take second place with 110. The best dressed table prize went to the ‘Mad Hatters’ for their Tea Party complete with teapot and talking dormouse. Special commendation should go to wooden spoon
winners - the ‘Mamas and Papas’ – since, as well as having only 4 team members they had the additional challenge of two little babies to care for! We would all like to thank Spike and Erica for making the event so much fun.
