QUIZ NIGHT 20th October 2017

Our annual Quiz night took place at 7.30 pm at St Stephens Church.

Sadly, only Twenty members attended this year, that did not detract from the enjoyment of those taking part. There was the usual, good natured banter between rival teams and the Question master.

Mr Colin Harrison Quiz Compiler provided us with his usual testing questions.

Mr Graham Harrison our resident Question master was unavailable this time, Gina & Murdo Ferrier made valiant attempts, but it was not quite the same.

At 8.30pm the questions ceased whilst we enjoyed a very good fish & chips supper, provided by Grimsby fisheries.

After supper there was a small raffle and then back to the questions.

Following a tie breaker Question, the results are as follows.

The Winning team:   with 75 ½ points

                                         Mrs Val & Mr Don Weynberg,

                                         Mrs Maureen & Mr Colin Headley

Second:                    with 74 ½ points

                                         Mrs Lilian & Mr Tony Bickerdike

                                         Mrs Muriel& John Long

Third:                       with a score of 64 points

                                         Mrs Joyce Brown, Mrs Dorothy Rice

                                         Mrs Rona & Mr Brian Stevens

Fourth:                     with a score of 58 points

                                         Mrs Diana & Mr John Niblett

                                         Mrs Anne Tarratt & Mr Bob Dorward.

Well done everyone. Mr Coin Harrison is now wondering if he made the questions too easy this year, as the scoring was very good, over 75% the best yet.

My sincere thanks to Colin for providing the Questions, my right-hand girl Maureen Ellis for collection the money and doing the raffle. Murdo for collection the fish and chip suppers and assisting with the task of Question master.

Special thanks to the RSCDS for coming to our rescue with a set of keys to enable us to gain entry to the hall.  Thank you to those members who supported the evening and assisted in setting out the room, due to the delayed entry to the church hall.

Hopefully we will have more entrants to our quiz in 2018, but beware, I have a sneaking feeling that Colin might make them harder. Let’s hope fish really does improve the brain.
