The Klinka Klub Committee hosted their 2nd Edition Quiz Night at the Babcock Mess on Saturday 16th July.
Winners: Berad's Bandits
The Klinka Klub Committee hosted their 2nd Edition Quiz Night at the Babcock Mess on Saturday 16th July. We had another fantastic turnout with 11 teams in total participating. These were Giggles, Shipwreckers, Latecomers, No Idea, Scrambled Eggheads, Milenko’s Mafia, Berard’s Bandits, King’s Queens, Prickly Pears, Simple Minds & The Quizinators.
Milenko’s Mafia took a solid lead in the first couple of rounds and looked like were going to have run-away performance. However matters changed after the Cocktails and Dingbats rounds.
Berard’s Bandits kept a solid performance throughout all the 8 rounds to emerge as the undisputed winners. The second place was not as certain, since both Prickly Pears and Shipwreckers were tied at 119 points each. The runner up was therefore decided by one additional question, which Prickly Pears won.
Runners Up: Prickly Pears Shipwreckers
Congratulations therefore to ‘Berard’s Bandits’ as the Winners and ‘Prickly Pears’ as Runners-up and special mention for Shipwreckers as the ‘Second Best’ runner-up!
Giggles took the Booby prize; some say due to too much…giggling!
Thanks for all the teams for your enthusiastic participation.
A big thank you to Chris and Louise Short for putting together a great quiz. Chris performed the Quiz Master’s role with panache!
Thanks also to Tracey Dupres for assisting Louise with the scoring.
Special thank you to Penny Peters, Chris George & Ian Oliver for their invaluable assistance before, during and after the event.
Thanks are also extended to; TBC for the loan of chairs, Phyllis Corker for the snacks and Solomon’s Shop for the hire of their popcorn machine.
We look forward to seeing you at our next Quiz Night!
