On Saturday evening around 5 pm seven teams from the village plus one from Aller connected up through the wonders of technology to battle it out in the second Curry Rivel On Line Quiz.
Defending their title from winning the first quiz two weeks earlier were 'Norfolk And Clue' from Aller. Other teams trying their luck again were 'Doing Porridge' (Alison and Geoff and Robert and Jane), 'Wiltown Wonderers' (Richard and Debbie), 'Saturday Night Healers' (Andy and Jenny and Paul and Laurina), 'Walt Quiznee' (Nikki and Freya), 'Table for Four' (the Hewitts) and 'Quizee Rascals. The new entry this time were the Franklins.
Questions this time were on General Knowledge, Music, Sport, Art and Literature, Wildlife and a Curry scenes. A Catchphrase round added to the fun. A huge amount of work went into producing a multi media quiz with recorded music questions and bird sounds and we are all grateful to Matt Green for the time and effort he put into making sure the slides all looked good and getting them onto everybody's screens at the same time.
Quizmaster extraordinaire, Steve Allinson, was in his element asking the questions at the right tempo, adding in his own brand of humour and fending off the insults from some of the team players. Some players added to the fun atmosphere by wearing silly hats .
Yours truly just about managed to keep a track on the scoring as it became quite tight with several teams in the running until the later rounds when the outlaws from Aller played their master Joker card on Round 5 scoring almost a maximum 18 points to leapfrog over newcomers, The Franklins.
The team from Aller turned out to be the eventual winners and have thus achieved noteriety by winning back to back quizzes. Well done to the. Who will de-throne them next time?
All in all it was fun filled couple of hours with the technology working better second time around.
Steve closed the evening by inviting the teams to donate to the Food Bank that is collecting food at the URC on Wednesdays and Saturdays between 12 and 1 pm
It is hoped to run another quiz in due course and anyone entering a team should contact Tony Greenaway through the firstname.lastname@example.org address .
All that's needed is a half decent broadband signal and the Zoom software which is a free download. If you'd like to take part but can't raise a team never fear as we can hook you with another player(s) by remote connection
