Let’s Get Quizzical…

| 11th June 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t going to stop us from catching up and having a social meet. The Chairman thought it was time to test the lads (and their better halves) grey matter with an online quiz.

The stage was set and bragging rights were up for grabs. Anyone who has the “privilege” of being familiar with Aylsham Round Table will know that there is a lot of bravado and wanting to be the top dog! Our Chairman decided it was time to ante up and give them what they wanted so he fired up Zoom and got busy with his Powerpoint skills to host a Quiz Night.

The night started with a impromptu round of getting everyone online with modern technology as if it isn’t a one button solution then there is always going to be a struggle. Once mastered the serious quizness began. The brains were whirring and on more than one occasion there was a grinding noise coming from the head of President Marks who was only kept afloat by his better half. The teams slugged it out debating answer by answer but it soon became apparent the battle was down to two teams, Team Marks versus Team Mitchell. As the quiz got more serious, eyebrows narrowed and Team Marks nearly lost the plot at Team Swarley enjoying a bowl of crisps by his laptop microphone. “Real” President East was at his best encouraging disorder and confusion.

At this point, Area Chairman, Nathan Lomax, dropped in to survey the carnage but he enjoyed the chaos like any good tabler should. Going into the last round it was neck and neck with faster fingers than an episode of University Challenge then nothing…the quiz was over. The final score was a tie between The Mitchells and The Marks! Just for fun there was a tiebreaker but being the Chairman who always gives back a £20 voucher was awarded to both couples and well deserved.

Everyone agreed that it was great night just to catch up and watch the amusing antics whilst fighting through the monotony of a lockdown. If you’d like to come along to a night out with Aylsham Round Table then let us know via our contact page.
