WRITE-UP on QUIZ ‘N’ CHIPS NIGHT at ASHWELLTHORPE VILLAGE HALL

Another very enjoyable quiz night was held at the Village Hall on Saturday night  (21 January 2017) with 11 tables (six team members on each table) taking part in one of Ray and Sue’s quizzes. During the evening, there were three rounds of 20 questions, plus a celebrity photo round, plus a music round. Another clever round was a photographic collage of British Prime Ministers and US Presidents, when a particular letter of their first-name or surname had to be worked out to make an anagram of a well-known phrase which, of course, then had to be worked out as well. It was all a good format and Ray must have spent a lot of time putting it together and then Sue had to do the check-marking after each round. So many thanks to them from all who attended. Fish and Chips were delivered to the Village Hall about half way through the quiz which gave the brains a short rest.

This time, the eleven quiz teams were: Norfolk ‘n’ Good; Make America Great Again; Mrs Brown’s Boys; The Jackson Five; Absolute Beginners; Four plus Two; The Clangers; Dawson’s Creek; Generation Gap; Joy of Six; The Magnificent Seven and, living up to the team name, the winners were THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN.

The Raffle of several prizes raised £80.00 for Village Hall funds; Ray’s beer mug collection which will be for the East Anglia Air Ambulance charity this year, raised £76.00.

AUGUST 2016 QUIZ ‘N’ CHIPS REPORT

Another packed Village Hall of hopeful quizzers gathered for this annual August quiz evening with questions put together and marked by Ray and Susan Jenkins – 14 tables each with a maximum of 6 quizzers. A lot of hard work was put in by Ray to put together the varied rounds of questions – this year there were themes to each round, varying from families, always the bridesmaid i.e. second, tv programmes and   geography, to two picture rounds with an extra anagram-type feature, and a music round. Added to all these was a nerve-racking “Wipe Out” round of ten questions scoring 4 points for each correct answer which, if just one question was wrong, led to the loss of all the points scored in that round! Most of the fourteen teams took extreme care to answer only the questions to which they “positively” knew the correct answer so as not to incur the penalty. But, I believe every team got the very first question wrong – which river is USA’s longest?;  “positively” putting down the answer Mississippi, when the correct answer is Missouri* – and, therefore, all teams got zero points.

Sue had her work cut out with the marking and verification of all the teams’ efforts and provided the results in reverse order (and I apologise if I have misheard the names and they are slightly wrong): 14 – Hector’s Harem; 11 – Second Family, Hens and Sheep, Hopeful Quizzers; 10 – Six of the Best; 8  Terry’s Boys, The Crabbies; 6  They Haven’t a Clue; 5  – Packer’s Thinkers; 4 – Gee Gees; 3 – Absolute Beginners; 2 – Up Dawson’s Creek; with the winners being The Generation Gap on 161 points (Carole and Richard Bradford, Louise Chadbon , Gavin Robbie, Gordon and Jennifer Robbie). A case of six bottles of wine was the prize for the winners.

Nick de Spon was the MC on the night, but Margaret Neilson was the ticket organiser/seller and collector of the fish and chips etc. which were all hot and very tasty. A raffle was held which raised £117 and a tankard collection organised by Ray for his 2016 Charity – Wymondham and Attleborough Talking Newspapers – raised £118.68p. A big thank-you to Ray and Sue for their splendid quiz and for the fun, good spirit and enjoyment it gave all the quizzers. There’ll be another one in January 2017.

*The Missouri is 2,341 miles in length and the Mississippi 2,320 miles.
