What is the Answer?
Posted on November 8, 2006
That was the question on everybody's lips at the Largest Quiz ever held in the Village Hall on October 6th!
YES. When the old GI's (Village Hall Fundraising Committee) got together with Eaton Bray Tennis Club to organise this great Quiz Night, none of us realised that it would be a sell out and that we are now about to be entered into The Guinness Book of Records, as the Largest quiz ever held in Eaton Bray. We expect ratification within the next few weeks!
The benefit of these numbers was a massive £1,300 to be shared equally between the toilets in the Village Hall and a load of tarmac at the Tennis Courts. Thanks to all of you who came and helped it to be such a success.
A special thank you to our quizmaster Keith Blackburn who volunteered his services to set totally impossible questions (well for some us anyway).
The saddest part? Well, as a member of the winning team last time, it was being beaten by the 2 youngest GI's (no names to protect the innocent) Katrina & Paul Hurley led a team to first place. I suppose congratulations are in order to them and their obviously very intelligent friends. Honestly no hard feelings on my part.
We hope you all enjoyed yourselves AND if you did, we are all doing it again next year, on Friday 20th April. Same venue, same quiz master, BUT unfortunately different questions!
Tickets available from Katrina or me (Ross). OR is that a bit too early? Answers on postcard please, to .........
