The club hosted a successful and enjoyable quiz night on Friday, October 27th. The event was well attended, with 7 teams, though a few more could have been squeezed in. As usual the questions were wide-ranging, covering recent history from hurricane Doris to the Grenfell Tower ?re and more distant history, with the names of the Three Wise Men, the Three Musketeers and the winners of Wimbledon – in other words there was something for everyone. With 5 or 6 in each team there was a ‘lively’ discussion between team members before, during and after each question and, as last time, the club’s retro PA system had to be relied upon for the questions and answers to be audible in the far reaches of the clubhouse. Including two picture-rounds (identifying ‘villains’ from their photos and artists from their paintings) there were 140 marks on o?er; all the teams scored over 100 and the winners (after a tie-break) 114. The winners shared their prize of bottles of wine with the tie-break runners-up, but whether this was motivated by generosity or guilty consciences (each team marked their own answers) only they know.
Refreshments were served just over half-way through the quiz and John and Clair Miller are to be thanked for looking after the bar throughout while taking part in the quiz. Thanks are also due to Clair for organising the event and the refreshments
