A great result in the Aberdyfi Village Quiz ...!
Our quiz team 'Oarsome Foursome' of Alun, Ron, Rich and Doris finished in a very respectable sixth place out of seventeen teams taking part in the Aberdyfi Village Quiz held at the Golf Club on Friday, March 16th.
With such a large entry field of surprisingly fit and brainy looking rivals our team's tactics
were to warm up quickly and then play to maximum strength throughout, with a final power spurt during the last section of questions.
Training had been going on all week ( at least by most of our team) so it was with some degree of concern that our team waited for the late arrival of Alun, who made it in the final minutes as our order of food was being taken... phew!
Then after a fortifying and very good supper ( with two of our team sensibly opting for the fish as an extra source of brain power ) the questions began and we were off!
Our tactics were working perfectly and we were all playing consistantly well in each section, then, by staking our Joker on the final section of General Knowledge questions we surged past several flagging teams and we were on our way, moving quickly towards the finish.
It was close, we nearly made it to the top three........more concentration needed...... come on team!
Well. not quite this time, but still, it was a great result and we should be proud of ourselves and our club!!
The team to beat are the Aberdyfi Players............ Next year perhaps ... who knows? with a little more training.... .....perhaps a tough training schedule would be the answer......?
.. er, Dave......?
Thank you to Aberdyfi Golf Club for hosting the event. It was a great night and all the money raised will be going to the Marie Curie Cancer Care.
