George Quiz Night, 22 July 2022
Shunning the rival minor attraction of Latitude, over seventy quizzers filled Wickham Market Village Hall on Friday night to flex their mental muscles and, at ‘halftime’, enjoy a ‘brain-food’ fish and chip supper. There was also a raffle with an eclectic range of prizes, and the bar was well-frequented, without too much apparent detriment to performance. Quizmaster Kevin Bolton (better known to us as singer with The Biscuit Brothers) kept admirable order – and learnt how to pronounce – at least- ‘quinquereme’ . Our thanks to him, and to organisers, Society Secretary, Mike Cooper, and User Group member, Barbara Hercliffe, who, though only seen as blurs for most of the evening, also did a fantastic job, and Committee member Steve Elliott and friends who devised the questions.
Team Ding Dong (Leslie Phillips fans?), the less modest three-quarters of which pictured on the right, were the eventual winners after nine hard-fought rounds, while the winning entry for the most amusing team name prize is unprintable here!
Thanks to all who attended and our volunteer helpers on the night; your generosity has added over £1,000 to the re-build funds. We hope you all had a great time and, please, keep a lookout for our next George event/get-together.
