Return of the Village Quiz a Resounding Success

Success for The Invincibles at the Village Quiz

The Village Quiz Challenge Cup

Eleven teams vied for the Village Quiz Challenge Cup last week and raised £310 towards the cost of a new Friendly Bench from Plastecowood – that’s well over half way!

Quizmaster Mike Morrisey, with support from Anita & Pauline, delivered a quiz with 10 rounds of 10 questions and a bonus picture round of 45 famous places (like Angel Falls). The halfway point was time for the Raffle which contributed £90 to the overall sum raised. The rounds were:

  • Geography,
  • People,
  • Art & Literature,
  • Sport & Games,
  • General Knowledge 1,
  • History,
  • Capital Cities,
  • Film & TV,
  • General Knowledge 2
  • Natural History.

In the end defending champions ‘The Invincibles’ scored 170 out of a possible 222 to win the cup. They were closely followed by ‘The Jerry Hat Tricks’ and ‘The G&Ts’. All who attended agreed that it was a great quiz and offered their thanks to Mike & his crew!
