Quiz night a resounding success on 2 April

Wednesday, 13 April 2016
Sixteen teams battled it out for the 2016 Quiz Night Trophy on 2 April. The bar and members' area were packed in anticpation of questions from Martin Thornley of SEQM Ltd, who acted as MC. Daveid Robinson was overall organiser.

There were six (or was it seven) rounds of questions on everything from film titles to geography, from history to general knowledge. There were also spot prizes for quick fire single questions - such as who produced Captain's Beefheart's seminal album Troutmask replica (Frank Zappa) and what are Mongolian nomads' homes called (gurts, not yurts).

We had particpants from from Cambois RC and Tees RC and many new faces - families, parents and friends. The bar was open (of course) and there was delicious chilli from the kitchen.

Chef's Little Help took the lead after three rounds with 28 points to Jokers in the Pack and 6 Shades Grayer both on 26 and others not far behind. After that Jokers pulled away slowly but surely to win with 66 points to Chef's 62. The full results are in the pic on the right.
