Winning Team 'We Dinae Ken' - (L to R) Jim Paterson, Janis Hogg, Neil Cape, Mary Paterson, and the other Jim Paterson. At our quiz night on Friday 25th May four teams
competed. Gordon MacDonald and Agnes Ovenstone shared asking the questions and keeping
the score. Although we didn’t have a great number of people
everyone there had a night filled with fun and laughter.
The teams were called Fullers Club, We Dinae
Ken, Hunter & Lass Five, and Famous Five.
The six categories were General Knowledge, Science,History, Film, Bible
and a multiple choice round. The Bible questions were set by our minister Rev
John Urquhart and were based on Shepherds of the Bible.
After three categories
we had tea/coffee and loaf and cake. Then back to the quiz.
One of the general
knowledge questions was “What is the world’s largest mammal” which of course is
the Elephant but one team thought the Giraffe which is of course taller but not
larger. One of the multiple choice questions was “Festfolk" was the original
name for which group – Beach Boys, Abba, Motorhead or Simon and Garfunkel” The
answers were split between Abba and Simon and Garfunkel.
Correct answer Abba.
A lot of sighing and/or cheering or moans
could be heard from around the hall .
When, as they say on quiz shows, the results were counted and verified
the winning team by one point was We Dinae Ken comprising of Mary and Jim
Paterson, Janis Hogg, Neil Cape and Jim Paterson.
