Quiz team goes from strength to strength

Update 23/07/18

A 5-man team adventured to Biggleswade on 20th June for the Carnival Quiz. The evening went at the pace of a carnival possession, but the questions were good and varied coming in groups of five, so if you didn’t like the subject it was soon on to the next one. We thought we were doing quite well until the final scores were read out, the winners got over 90% of the answers correct. We were 7th out of the 11 teams. The following week another team of 5 had a win at the 3 Horseshoes, and the week after that, the Biggleswade team reconvened at the Wagon and Horses to finish 2nd out of 6. On 9th July at the Cultivo we had probably our biggest ever win, adding £67 to the kitty for bettering the other 16 teams taking part, and last week in a low turnout at the 3 Horseshoes we came 1st and 2nd.

Update 26/03/18

Since the last update we have had: a 1st and 2nd at the Three Horseshoes, Norton on 13 March; a joint 4th out of 16 by the team of four who braved the snowy conditions at Weston on 17 March and another 4th at the Cultivo on the 19 March.

Update 13/03/18

It was a slightly less than auspicious debut at the Orange Tree, Baldock on 27 February where our lack of 'Brit Awards' knowledge left us filling the last 2 places. Better news came on 4 March when one of our teams claimed a first place at The Platform in Letchworth, this was repeated on the 10 March at the Children’s Society fundraiser.

Status at end of 2017

The Quiz Team is going from strength to strength. We now have over 30 members and can often field at least two teams at the quizzes we attend. We're also still winning some of the quizzes. Here are the winning team from the Three Horseshoes on 15 Aug

The following week we were able to field 3 teams at the Cultivo Lounge, our teams coming 2nd ,3rd and 7th. With one team nearly coming 1st place scoring 70 points was joint place  but after taking the tiebreaker question was pipped at the post. Here are our 3 teams from the night
