Kingsbridge Estuary

Quiz Club

Leader Glenn reports as follows in May 2019:

Following the Club’s success on its first outing in February coming fourth out of fourteen, we recently fielded another team at Malborough Village Hall and came out the winners. Members continue to search where new challenges might be.

At our monthly meeting we revisit quizzes we have done as individuals and investigate and research answers so we are more aware next time round. We each devise questions and answers to present to the group collectively, again using the Internet to investigate the subject. We also look at ‘add-ons’ such as dingbats, sayings, countries, advertising slogans, and counties which seem to crop up at quizzes and any other puzzles we come across.

An April Fools’ Quiz night was recently held at the Library in Kingsbridge and it seems, from our point of view, to have been very suitably named! There were six rounds with ten questions on each topic which were True or False, Kingsbridge, Biology and Science, Devon, Books and Authors, General Knowledge plus a picture round on Oscar winning films. We decided on the night that it had been a learning curve from which we hopefully would gain experience. However, we did come away with a large terracotta bowl, (extremely suitable to receive mosaic), Lindt Easter bunnies and a bunch of carrots!

The next annual Network Link Quiz (which was the reason the Quiz Club was formed) will be held on the afternoon of October 10th at the Redcliffe Hotel, Paignton. Possible participants will be from Ashburton, Brixham, Dawlish, Exeter, Exmouth, Livermead and Preston, Paignton , Dartmouth, Teign and Totnes. We can field one official team plus a fun team.

We would welcome new members to widen our knowledge base and make our team a force to be reckoned with! We meet at the Creek’s End on the third Monday of each month from 2pm until 4pm
