The Walkington Quiz season is moving towards an exciting conclusion and Friday night’s contest (16th Feb) saw the runners up semi final, with the winner claiming the last spot in the Grand Final on 16th March 2018.
Unfortunately, the team from the Sherwood and Waudby Charity had to withdraw leaving the Walkington Ladies Social Group and The Awesome Foursome to battle it out for the final place.
As usual the question master was Dennis Johnson with Anne Brookes keeping the score. A very interesting and educational set of questions were set by Neville Pailing; we had rounds on General Knowledge, The Old Names of Countries, Surnames, I’ve got an Ology, Name that Tune, International Car Registrations and many more. In a break with tradition the quiz was made up of ten rounds.
The competition was extremely close and despite the Awesomes taking an early lead the Walkington Ladies fought back hard to close the gap to one point, with one round to go. Both teams held back two Jokers for the final round and expectations were running high as Dennis announced the final round called Pot Pourri. Eventually, the Awesome Foursome secured the win and their place in the Final, with a score of 65 points, with the Walkington Ladies on 62 points.
Congratulations to both teams for putting on a close contest and providing some good entertainment on a cold February evening.
