20 Questions Quiz

The 20 Questions Quiz is now a part of the annual programme that fills in the once-blank week of half-term. It was devised by Andrew Hunter and took place this year at the Bridge Club in Bargate on Monday, 17th February. Ten players entered this time and Ian Welham repeated his victory of 2019. Dennis Brown was second and Lawrence Cook third. Each player set 20 questions for one Round.

Survey About Quizzing

I have been contacted by Emma Foster, an MSc student at the University of Buckingham. She is conducting an online survey which is aimed at people who quiz, at any level. Anyone who is willing is invited to take part. Below is a link to the survey. It takes roughly 20-25 minutes to complete.

Harry's Notes

Results for Week Ending 13th February

Division 1

Nemesis. 76. Surplus Rowdies. 78

Rasen. 87. Bux Kwiz. 83

Magic Robots. 63. RAFA Dipsos. 86

Division 2

Time Out. 91  Serendipity. 87

Too Witless. 66. Minders. 73

Belligerent Fools. 64. Quizlings. 78

 

The big clash came in the top division where Rowdies got one over on old rivals Nemesis whose bubble seems to have burst. Dipsos surged further ahead with a decisive victory over Robots. The other match was very close but Rasen just pipped Bux by 4.

The runaway leaders in Division 2, Apostles, were not engaged and Time Out just managed to beat bottom team Serendipity to keep in the promotion places. Minders also kept in touch against Too Witless as did Quizlings against Belligerent Fools. Quizlings recently suffered the very sad passing of one of their better players, Keith, and we extend our deepest condolences to his team and his family.
