Quiz Night - 2017

Monday 6th March saw the return of our annual Quiz Night !

Tradition says that last years winners set the questions, and so the honour(?) this year fell to Pendle Forrest.

Six teams participated this year, struggling with some really tough questions.  Who would have expected to remember in which year Campagnolo introduced the Super Record groupset!.

After a stiff picture round naming current and past professional riders, and three question rounds on cycling and general knowledge we took a well deserved break with a Pie & Pea supper.

Another picture round followed, naming cycle manufacturers logos all the way from Hetchins to Bianchi, and two more question rounds to finish the closely fought contest.

And the results were...

In last place with 53 points    The Missing Links
3rd Place - 63 points High Gear
2nd Place - 75 points 3rd Generation
Winners - 77 points Where are the loosers (Anne & Tony)

 

And so the "Old Crank" trophy was awared to Blackburn District, although judging from the photo, half the team seemed more interested in their Cadbury Creme Eggs.

Blackburn are now tasked with setting next years questions.

Thanks to all those that attended, and to Boyce's Barrel for providing the venue again.
