10 teams turned out on Saturday evening to compete for the Claxton Quiz Challenge Cup (actually we don’t have a trophy – yet). In a closely-fought contest marked by judicious use of Jokers and numerous sighs of exasperation at the fickleness of short-term memory, the Woodlarks eventually romped home with a commendable 79½ points out of a possible 107, 7 points ahead of their nearest rival. The full scoreboard is shown below.
Once again quizzers enjoyed good ales from the bar and a delicious two-course meal provided by the Community Café team. This was Mike Balmer’s 6th annual quiz. They all follow a fairly familiar format, and he admits that unearthing more interesting facts about Norfolk after exhausting the obvious ones over the years is becoming more difficult. And yes, golf is a sport! Mike would be happy to pass on the Quizmaster’s baton to anyone prepared to put something together for 2019 and form a team of his own to see if he has actually learned anything since 2013!
In the meantime thanks to everyone who came and quizzed in such good spirits. We will hopefully see you next year.
