Quiz Team

Please let me know if you would like to
join in.
New Group Contact:This group enters a team (or teams) in general knowledge quizzes held at various locations in Letchworth Garden City and other nearby towns and villages. We try to take part in a couple of quizzes a month - not on any specific evening - so if you know of a quiz near you that you'd like to take part in, join us & we'll fit it in. Or perhaps you know about a one-off quiz at the weekend.

There was a slightly less than auspicious performance at the Orange Tree, Baldock on 27 February where our lack of 'Brit Awards' knowledge left us filling the last 2 places. Better news came on 4 March when we claimed our only win of the month at The Platform in Letchworth.

The quiz nights we are planning to attend this month are shown in the Group Events column on the right.

Please let Andrew Dear (the new Group Contact) know if you would like to join in any of these events.

The Quiz Team is going from strength to strength. We now have over 30 members and can often field at least two teams at the quizzes we attend. We're also still winning some of the quizzes.

On Tuesday 28th March we managed to field 3 teams for the first time at the Three Horseshoes, but we still weren't good enough to win.

Not so successful this evening. We fielded two teams who finished 5th and 6th with 33 and 29 points out of a total of 70 respectively, but still a very stimulating challenge

Thirteen teams took part in this quiz at the Wilbury Hall in Bedford Road. We provided one team and other members of our group were in at least one other team.

We fielded a team of five for this quiz which was described as being a general knowledge quiz with a bias towards sustainability, but it turned to be more than a bias!!

A new venue for us this evening, but a difficult quiz. We scored 36 points and winners scored 41. 

Despite a low turnout (5 teams, 18 quizzers) and it being a tougher quiz than normal, our team of 4 managed to win the quiz again by 4 points with 44 points out of 80
