First Curry Virtual Quiz a 'Much needed tonic'

Home » Latest News » Quiz 'Much needed tonic'
Zoom Quiz 18 0420

Nine teams took up the challenge to take part in the inaugural Curry Rivel Virtual Quiz and all voted it a 'hit' despite one or two teething problems. Every team were winners for taking part and hopefully finding it a much needed and enjoyable distraction from the current problems facing us at the moment. One contestant described as "...a much needed tonic from a very weird world we are living in a present"

Subjects covered included 'The Last 12 months, Entertainment, Sport, a Wildlife picture round, Music, a local picture round and a Childrens Rhymes Acronym round. One additional point was awarded to 'Table for Four', 'Staying Alive' and 'Saturday Night Fever' for their amusing names. The Quizmaster also had two points to give at his discretion. These were awarded to the 'Staying Alive Team' for Stuart's impression of Bruce Forsythe and to the 'Doing Porridge' Team for Geoff's sharing his self created Coronavirus protective headgear (sorry no picture)

The highest scoring team were 'Norfolk and Clue' with 70.5 points closely followed by Table for Four and Saturday Night Fever.

A great of deal of thanks go to the organisers of the quiz, namely Steve Allinson (Quizmaster Extraordinaire), Matt Green, (Technical Consultant and Wizard) and Tony Greenaway (Comms and scorer).

It is hoped to have a further quiz in a fortnight with some modifications made as a result of the excellent feedback received from the teams. Watch this space
