24th February 2018.
Yeovil Car Club’s inaugural quiz night was a great success with nearly 30 people turning up on a chilly February night for an evening’s entertainment. This different approach was suggested due to the low turnouts for the Natter and Noggins.
Quiz master for the evening was the club’s president, Colin Gosney who presided over the event. Colin set the riddles, the first one being a ‘Guess the Image’ competition. It turned out that Colin had actually taken the photographs some 40 years earlier, but the content was still as relevant today as when he snapped them all those years ago.
The anagram round was up next, and that had everyone puzzling about place names – the natural competitiveness coming out in the contestants. One contestant was heard to say to another team, ‘Speak up a bit as we can’t hear your answers!’
A break to enjoy food provided by the Rose and Crown at Tintinhull, was followed by the raffle, and one table certainly had lady luck on their side that evening!
The final round was a general knowledge quiz, but it soon became clear no one was going to get all the questions correct. Colin’s question about ‘How many Robin Reliants were taxed and on the road?’ certainly had the contestants stumped – for those interested, the answer was 94, which of course no one guessed.
The winners overall was the ‘Clever Clogs’ team but there was only 1 mark between the first and second places, so it was extremely close.
Everyone enjoyed the evening, with light hearted banter throughout. In fact it was so successful, that Graham Dewar (Chairman) suggested an annual quiz night in February 2019 which everyone agreed was a splendid idea. Bob Owen has kindly offered to be quiz master on this occasion. So make sure you check Tyre Squeals and the website for further information for 2019.
