No Half-Measures at the Autumn Quiz Night

The start of the autumn Quiz Night was delayed by road closures on the approach to the venue but when proceedings finally got under way eight teams were ready to compete. We had been warned from the outset by Peter, our quizmaster, that in the case of disputed answers his decision was final and as the evening continued it became clear that he is not a man who does things by half. You will not find him sitting on the fence or hedging his bets. Fifty shades of grey? – black and white will do. So no half-marks.

But let’s face it: there are some questions that require a more considered response. As key members in the gathering would confirm, quiz nights are a serious business. After a closely-fought contest the “Answering Machine” emerged as the winning team.

Assisting our deceptively affable quizmaster on the night were Dea who kept score (whole numbers only) together with Alison and Jean who organised the half-time refreshments.
