Much hilarity at the Twinning Christmas Quiz

Christmas Quiz 2018Teams of four once again pitted their wits in the annual Twinning Christmas Quiz at the Kings Arms, Buckfastleigh on December 1, our traditional festive curtain-raiser. 

Hats off to President Anne Goulborn who compiled the Christmas-themed questions, and Quizmaster Martyn whose stentorian voice quelled the hubbub.   In the interval there were raffle prizes galore to be won, sandwiches courtesy of the Kings Arms and home-baked mince pies capped with local clotted cream.   

Fiercely contested, the quiz was not without controversy.  One question involved how in 2017 a Totnes butcher had managed to extricate himself from his own freezer.  A philosophical debate ensued pivoting on whether a frozen black pudding (the tool he used to escape) could be classified as a sausage.  We were, however, all agreed a chipolata was not an acceptable answer. 

Thanks to the eventual winners “The Wolfpack” for donating their prize to the Twinning coffers.
