The new Quiz Season kicked off last Friday evening (18th) in the Village Hall and will continue until the Grand Final on 20th March 2020. The first round featured teams from The Newsletter, The Pond Committee and The Bowls Club. The question master was Dennis Johnson and the scores were kept by Mike Brookes who also devised a challenging set of questions.
There was a good turnout for a wettish Friday night with 28 people in the audience. The scores were very close, up to the coffee interval, with the Bowls Club on 30 points, the Newsletter on 26 points and the Pond Committee on 23 points. However, in the second half the Newsletter set a really fast pace and eventually ran out worthy winners with a score of 46, followed by the Bowls Club on 35 and the Pond Committee on 31.
Congratulations to the Newsletter for a great result and they go through to the winners knockout contest on 17th January 2020. All is not lost for the two losing teams as they will still retain a chance to appear in the Grand Final.
The next round, to be played on 15th November, features the Walkington Ladies Social Group, All Hallows Church and the Methodists. So come and support your team.
