On Saturday evening we had a community quiz evening with St Johns, West Hendon. It was a great evening of fun, challenge and laughter, with all teams running it close until the final table round. The breadth of knowledge of the participants was inspiring, if not quite disturbing? Who else would know which country had the most female pipe smokers? Not all the questions demanded random knowledge and the victorious ‘Dez’s Desirables’ won by just 2 points.
One of the rounds saw our likeable quizmaster displaying his shakespearean acting skills (well, skill may not be quite accurate!) to raucous laughter, and we needed to remember that there was a quiz to win. The writings of ‘The Bard’ are obviously well known in this area.
It was a fun night and we made new friends, laughed with old friends and we were greatly encouraged.
