A select number of intrepid contestants braved the elements tonight to participate in the F4UL biannual quiz. There were sufficient numbers to comprise three competitive teams who, despite Upton Eyes photographic evidence, were not asleep and were a great deal more enthusiastic than these pictures might suggest on first glance.
These two, having been abandoned by fellow team members in pursuit of biscuits and photo opportunities, are left to puzzle out the anagram section. Actually, we did quite well on this round coming joint first. We also did well on the tie break, also coming joint first and even better on a question relating to the weight of the world’s largest pumpkin which secured the chocolates for Table One.
I hate to be controversial but these monthly events arranged by the Friends for Upton Library could be better attended given that it’s an inexpensive evening out arranged by volunteers. I just hope there’s more of you next month when, on 28 November, yours truly will be reading from letters written home from a lost year in France.
In the meantime, grateful thanks to Jean & Peter for putting tonight’s quiz together and presenting it so efficiently.
