Thorpe Bay

Quiz Group

We meet at a convenient local hall with parking a good bus connections. Please contact Wendy White for more information.

Due to the popularity of the Quiz group we now hold our Quiz on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month.

On the first Tuesday of the month the doors will open at 6:45pm. & we finish around 9:15pm. (NB for this group we will use the separate hall at the back of the main building with entrance at the rear). The quiz on the 3rd Tuesday has changed to the afternoon. It starts at 2:00pm. through to 4:15pm. with the doors opening at 1:45pm.

I hope that all you "would-be" quizzers who don't like coming out on cold nights will come along to our afternoon sessions & give us a try. You'll be very welcome. Of course I look forward to seeing all the familiar faces too.

December Afternoon Quiz

Kevin was in the chair for our last session of the year. Not only did we get a lot of Christmas questions but a music section (which film did the tune come from) & a picture round. I am ashamed to say that having sailed with Cunard many times, I didn’t recognise their flag! What does gilet jaune mean in English, yellow vests. When is Star Wars day every year? It’s May 4th ( may the force be with you?). Who wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? Ian Fleming. Who won the F1 championship this year, answer Lewis Hamilton for the 6th time.

January Evening Quiz

We had a record crowd for our 1st quiz of the New Year, indeed the New Decade. Paul (senior) was in the chair & managed to keep the mob under control!! Which island in the Med. does Marsala wine come from, answer SICILY. Who had a hit in 1999 with Millenium Prayer, Cliff Richard of course. What is the only underground station with the letter Z in it’s name? Belsize Park. Which racecourse is crossed by the Melling Road? It is Aintree & often mentioned in the Grand National. Who was the last Catholic king? Answer, James II.

As we enter a new decade we were given a list of 10 pairs of events that took place in each year of the past decade. We had to work out which year. Get one year wrong then another must be wrong. Much more difficult than it seemed at first look!

Hope to see you at our next afternoon session on 21st January.
