A Fun-raiser Quiz Night

24 June 2013 49 views No Comment

On the evening of the AMM quiz night fund-raiser it may have been cold and windy outside but inside, with such a great turnout of over a hundred friends of the AMM, the machinations of enquiring minds and bodies transformed the Joslin Scout Hall into a cosy environment within minutes of starting.

As each question of quizmaster John arose a scratching of the heads and a furrowing of the brows was the order of the day, interspersed with the occasional cry of a flagrant red herring or the “shooshing” of an over-enthusiastic contributor. Exasperated mutterings and rueful glances as the answers dropped like sherbet bombs into the expectant silence completed the cycle for each question. Then repeat for the rest of the evening.

No chance of a comfort zone as the questions ranged far and wide from vehicle types, enough to test the petrol in any head, through sports locations, to obscure lyrics, probably teased from the cobwebbed archives of an aging Goth. One category briefly popular was that of “four-letter words“, until it was explained that these were expected to be the answers, not the prevailing sentiment.

For a little light exercise some questions were taken while standing up (short-lived for many )and concluded with a pleasant stroll over for a fling in the coin toss.

By evening’s end both the tables chock full of goodies and the egos chock full of superior knowledge had been decimated and the great time avowed by all was little altered by the closing revelation that the winning table belonged to the organizer of the quiz.

It was universally agreed we should, and would, do it again, reinforced further by the healthy return on the night’s expenditure.
