Yes, it was blowing a gale; yes, it was pouring with rain, but that acted as no deterrent for members of The Curry Rivel & District Twinning Association on Saturday 28 September.
Around 40 people, comprising members and their friends, took part in another of the Association's popular quiz evenings — the first event following the summer break.
This time the quizmasters were "The Quiz Kids" who won one of last year's memorable evenings. Various rounds had been compiled on a range of topics including 2019, Weather and Maritime Matters as well as Somerset, Animals and The Human Body. The traditional Fil Rouge round, this time with 50 questions, was distributed at the beginning of the evening and required a number as the answer to each one — some proved quite tough!
With eight rounds and the Fil Rouge completed the scores were added up and "The Fivehead Rivels" were pronounced the winners — congratulations to Dave & Nina Cameron, Paul & Di Narey and Paul & Carol Crocker. Their efforts were rewarded by being presented with the Chairman's Cup by Barbara Hamlin, Chair of the Twinning Association and they also received some bottles of wine to celebrate their achievement.
A raffle also took place to help with the Association's fundraising.
