Quiz Group

Date: 2nd Friday of the month
Time: 10.30am - 12.30pm (coffee served at 10am)
Where: Fisher House, Stow on the Wold
Group Organisers: Ray and Susan Dodd
Deputy Organiser: Christine Gorton

The quiz Group has been going for about 7 years. At present we have 34 members. We are not “eggheads”, just people who enjoy a bit a quizzing for fun each month. Most members take a turn at being quizmasters; usually 2 members share this task. This means that every quiz is different with many creatively designed rounds. We usually have a complete range of topics from general knowledge to picture rounds and word puzzles.

We play in small teams, which members choose for themselves when they arrive. We meet for coffee and a natter, as well as organizing the teams at 10am and then the actual quiz runs from 10.30 -12.30. There is always much laughter and banter and nobody takes it too seriously. If you would like to come along, meet some new friends and have a laugh please get in touch using the “Blue Bird" link on the right.

Covid 19 Restrictions

During covid we have started playing the quiz via zoom, still on the 2nd Friday of the month. Prior to the quiz a zoom link is sent to each member. We ask people to log into zoom from 10.15 and start the quiz at 10.30. The questions are sent out via post in advance with members being told not to open then until the quizmaster tells them to! This means everyone has a hard copy of the questions in front of them. Members are organized into small teams (of their choosing) and we send them into “electronic breakout rooms” so they can discuss the answers with their own team. After each round we bring them back into the “main room” and mark the answers.

Whilst it will never completely take the place of being all together, it has proved to be really successful, with the members being able to enjoy all the usual quiz banter, and afterwards having the opportunity to continue chatting with their quiz friends after.
