District Quiz Final 26th March

The final of the Annual District Quiz was held at the Horsely Lodge Golf Club, home of the Rotary Club of Heanor who incidentally turned out in force to offer support.   A light meal was available before the quiz started for any members who had come straight from work (? ?)

Fifteen teams of four took part in the final with 75 questions to answer.  There was a tactical side to the quiz as well as eachj team was allowed to play two joker round when their scores were doubled.   Choosing the correct time to play the joker without knowing what was coming up later proved to be the sret to success.

The top five teams, in reverse order, were as follows:-

Ripley                                 117 points
Sherwood Forest                 122 points
West Bridgford                   122 points
Newark                               123 points
Bretby                                 124 points

As you can see a close fought contest with Bretby coming out as winners for the third consecutive year.     The evening was very enjoyable and Horsely Lodge provided a most suitable room, with a bar allowing contestants to refresh the parts that needed refreshing during the evening.

RTn Mike Storr from the RC of Carlton who had organised the event and acted as Quizmaster was fantastic and deserves a round of applause - not easy on a blog.  Many thanks Mike.
