Carole and Co win Quiz after Tie-breaker!

Tuesday 26th March. The Star Charity Quiz night. 80 Quizzers are nervous and tense, each team wondering if they will win the magnificent trophy for 10 mins of fame.

The picture round reveals FISH. The majority of the 13 teams are crestfallen. But 2 teams (Carole and Co and The Old Rockers) have a secret fish fetish person!  They tie in first place with 81 points!

Time to bring out the flea-bitten, dusty folder with tie-breaker questions. “How many inhabited islands are there in Fiji?” Answer 100. Carole and Co won. The Old Rockers so very nearly won, but didn’t.

Third with 79 points was Geddington Goers and 4th was The Topical team with 78. In 5th place were 3 teams, NFN, The Lyons and Read All About It, each with 77 points.

What excitement!

£228 was raised for Geddington Newsletter. Thanks to them for a wonderful raffle and a very efficient collecting of monies. Thanks to Emma and Marcie for womannng the bar and for The Freemans to organise the tables.

PLEASE ring or go to the bar and register your team name and numbers. Next month on April 9th the charity is in aid of Guiding Light, a teenage drama group in Kettering. The restaurant will be closed and blocked off due to the renovation, so Richard will need an imaginative mind to place the tables and chairs. I hope it will be a fun-packed evening, if not, maybe just a packed evening?
