At one point last week, we thought we would have to cancel quiz night…but we needn’t have worried. In the end we had a fantastic turnout and raised a phenomenal £1800! The room was a constant fervour of anticipation and debate, with some dancing and impromptu karaoke throughout the night!
Our wonderful prizes were donated by:
Michiko Sushino http://www.michikosushino.com/restaurant/
The Lexi Cinema https://thelexicinema.co.uk/
We are so grateful for their generosity!
Our teams took it very seriously and it was a hard fought battle. After the first couple of rounds the teachers were leading quite convincingly but with people dipping in their pockets for some cleverly played jokers and, we know from the takings, a fair few answers, battle commenced and the eventual winners were Under Par, closely followed by The Wooden Spoon and Let’s Get Quizzical! And of course there has to be an actual wooden spoon team which this year went to the Smurfs (though there was only two points in it) who were graced with a bag of sweets for their achievement!
A huge amount goes into organising events like these and we simply couldn’t do it without the wonderful volunteers who give up their time to help. Particular thanks to Sarah Reynolds for compering and Simone Baggio for cooking up another feast! And massive thanks to all the kitchen assistants, bar flarers, decorative detailers, quiz runners, ticket sellers and of course the FoSS Committee for all their usual efforts as well as writing the quiz itself this year. And of course, it wouldn’t have been a success without all you wonderful people who came along and played, had fun, drank and were merry (naming no names…) and bought lots of answers and jokers!
This was our first event on a Friday evening, and it seemed to be a huge success, so we will definitely look to do more events on funday Friday in the future!
For those who want another look at the observation round video (Cliff Richard and the Young Ones prancing around Queens Park in the 80s), here’s a link:
Sadly we don’t have a video of the teacher led choreographed routine to an N*Sync number that kept us entertained as we cleared up but we do have some great photos from the night below.
