ANNUAL QUIZ ‘n’ CHIPS NIGHT at ASHWELLTHORPE VILLAGE HALL held on SATURDAY 16 JANUARY 2016

The very popular annual January Quiz ‘n’ Chips evening at Ashwellthorpe Village Hall was held last Saturday evening, 16 January 2016 and was another sell-out with the Village Hall full of thirteen teams, mostly with six members in each team. The expert Question Master was, as always, Ray, assisted in the marking and adjudication by his wife Sue, and many thanks from all participants go to them both for devising a fun, but mind/memory stretching series of 55 questions (including the music round), plus a photograph round and Map of South America country quiz.

Ray held his usual collection for his Charity of the Year which, for 2016, is the Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspaper and £90 was raised. The Village Hall’s raffle of several prizes raised £102.

Now to the results in time-honoured reverse order (and I hope I have got the names of the teams correct!)

12 – No Hopers, Losers and Rogues

11 joint – Pigs and Sheep and

Hopeful Quizzers

Joint Winners – Mums and Dads and

Up Dawson’s Creek

As there were joint winners on 145 Points, a tie breaker came into play –  “In Which Year was the first Oxford/Cambridge University Boat Race held?” The answer is 1829 – Mums and Dads said 1885; Up Dawson’s Creek said 1810. So, Up Dawson’s Creek were the closest and Winners of the 6 bottles of wine first prize.
