This year’s traditional Summer Quiz ‘n’ Chips evening was held at the Village Hall on Saturday 19 August with nine teams of six people each answering (in one way or another) the various questions put together by our regular and popular Quizzer – Ray, helped this time by sister Shirley.
There were three general knowledge rounds with 20, 23 and 25 questions respectively, two “Table” rounds, one with 12 cartoon characters and the other with 12 National flags to identify, finishing the Quiz with a Music round covering several decades from the 1950s onwards.
The teams had, as usual, idiosyncratic names: Joy of Six – joint 2nd; Five Minus One-joint 2nd; It’s in There Somewhere! – 7th; Generation Gap -1st; Jackson 5 – 6th; Dot no I’s – joint 3rd; Wymps on Tour – joint 3rd; Mc vs 6 – 8th; Normal for Ashwellthorpe – 9th. After several rounds, fish and chips and the raffle draw, the music round sorted everything out and the The winners of the evening were presented with six bottles of wine and the “Wooden Spoonees” with six packets of cheese biscuits. The event cleared a profit of £199.90 for Village Hall funds.
Ray’s collection for his charity of the year – East Anglian Air Ambulance – raised £73.47. Thanks very much to Ray and Shirley for putting together the Quiz and marking the answers and to everyone for entering. A very enjoyable evening – and the fish and chips were good too.
