NEW ITEMS

Return of Trophies
The annual problem arises concerning the return of Trophies from last season's winners. They must be returned to Malcolm as soon as possible at 56, Weelsby Road or to him at the Table Quiz next Monday evening, 15th April at Birdseye Club in Ladysmith Road. Sorry for the short notice.

20 Questions Quiz
The winner of the 20 Questions Quiz held Monday 18th February was Ian Welham, with Andy Alcock second and Andrew Hunter third. A full scoresheet is attached here.

Harry's Notes

Easter Table Quiz

This attracted only 8 teams to the Birdseye Club on Monday, 15th April but the sides that stayed away missed an excellently conceived set from Lawrence Cook. Rounds had conventional questions but the answers had common links. For example, one round's answers were all county towns, another Winners of the Open Golf Championship and others where all answers threw up England Test Captains or US Presidents. The last round was best of all. All answers were Quiz League stalwarts e.g. Question- which pair of flyers were first to fly the Atlantic Ocean non-stop, Answer-Alcock and Brown  (Andy Alcock and Dennis Brown).

 There was a picture puzzle where all were young photographs of female Oscar winners and another of games.

All-in-all a quiz that must have taken much time in preparation.
