16th Annual Quiz Night 2017

The 16th annual AFES Quiz Night was held on the last Thursday in November at the Station Hotel in Aberdeen.  A packed house was there to witness an evening of intellectual fortitude as 18 teams went head to head to determine this years champions and, more importantly, who would be this years Wooden Spoon winners.

The early leaders after the “Pot Luck” round were The “hole” Package followed by Quizzard of Oz and Hawking does Strictly.  Round two was a homage to Big Bang Theory’s “Fun with Flags” and was a close run affair with You’re a Quizzard, Harry scoring a whopping 22 with 6 other team amassing a lowly 21.

I’m not sure if scoring highly on Round 3 – on the subject of Brew Dog – was a good thing or not but clearly webuyanycrapoilfield.com and Distiller’s Choice know their beers (or whatever the subject was on).

Round 4 was The Archie Round – 10 points for the winner and nothing for the rest.  The Spartans took the points here.

Moving on to Round 5 (Scottish Bridges), Wa-Wa scored extremely well whilst the others floundered.  Honour, in most cases, was restored in Round 6 (Groovy Music) with Cognoscenti scoring a big 22.

The majority of the points were on offer in the seventh and final round – The Picture Round – and this saw the eventual winners,  Quizzard of Oz, win the round.

Thanks to everyone who came to the quiz last night, it was a great event as always.

Congratulations to all, some brilliant raffle prizes where donated and won, with all the profits going to the ARCHIE Foundation (we raised over a thousand pounds for the foundation this year!).
