7.30 p.m. on Saturday 25 August 2013 saw a full house of quizzers at Ashwellthorpe Village Hall with 14 competitive teams, mostly made up of 6 people in each team, trying to answer the 100 questions put together, once again, by Ray and Sue Jenkins. Everyone vying for the correct answers led to lots of whispered conversations amongst individual team members about who was right or wrong and then going with the consensus! And some louder discussions about Yorkshire the county or not…..
Anyway, it seemed that everyone enjoyed themselves, the fish and chips were tasty this year and, although final financial figures might not yet be complete, it seems that a profit of £340 (including £120 on the raffle) was made on the night. Without Ray and Sue Jenkins’ varied questions and musical teasers, the quiz would not go with such a swing – an extra collection by them also raised £90 for their 2013 Charity – the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
Notes were not made of all the Team names but the two teams The No Hopers and No Hopers with 103 and 112 points respectively received the two? wooden spoons; joint Second place were Dawson’s Creek and The Saga Louts with 137 points and the winners – The Pride of Lions (Wymondham Lions?) – scored 161 Points.
Watch out for the next Quiz ‘n’ Chips night at Ashwellthorpe Village Hall – Saturday 19 October 2013.
