By 7:30pm on Saturday 24 March, the Quiz was in full swing.
A good time was had by all on our second quiz evening. We had 60 “quizzers” which were split into 9 teams and we also had 9 rounds including an interesting “sweet” round where teams had to identify various types of sweets – either by eating them or smelling them – most teams took the first option !
At the end of the quiz there were just 2 points between “Wizard of “0”s and “Cantium” with the former taking first place. The “Wooden Spoon” award was given to the “Games of Phones” who only had 4 members in their team and still managed a healthy score despite coming last.
For a change the raffle prizes were wrapped in brown paper concealing the item so the winners had a surprise gift to open.
Our Quiz Master and author was Neil who, despite our sound system producing rather loud noises on odd occasions, managed to preside over the proceeding with just the right amount of joviality needed.
Profits from this event go towards maintaining the hall and perhaps to even providing a new sound system for our next quiz evening and future events!

7 No Trumps, Wizard of O’s and Jean’s Jesters were among some of the teams who recently vied to be local champions at the GSG Village Society Quiz. Held on the 23 September 2017 at the Greenwood Community Centre, the quiz consisted of nine rounds of general knowledge questions that challenged even the most hardened “quiz wiz”.
During the half time break teams munched on some tasty fish and chips, supplied by Seabream in the Crescent, whilst trying to decipher a pictograph featuring 70 rock and roll bands, and competing in a round of heads and tails. With one round of the quiz to go two teams were neck and neck, and in a nail-biting finish, Gaye Bikers on Acid were crowned the winners, with one point separating them from second place, Famous Five.
The Events Committee would like to congratulate all those who took part, the winners, and Margaret Lawrence, who was a fabulous Madame Quizmaster and kept energy and excitement levels high throughout. Please look out for further events in 2018 and, as always, we welcome any suggestions or ideas for future activities.
