Keyworth Abundance

In the first match the Keyworth Medical Practice and Baptist Church fought out a close scoring tie with the KMP holding on through the B & Bs to go through as the lowest scoring winners in the First Round by 43-36.

The Rugby Club were unfortunate to face last year's winners the Dramatic Society who were once again in good form and won 51-37.

Keyworth United and the Scouts Turkey Trotters were level with five B & B questions to go but the Trotters answered them all correctly to go through by 52-42.

The final match of the night was the closest of the entire first round with Abundance just pipping the Scouts Uniformed Branch by 53-49. However, that score of 49 meant that the Scouts go through as one of the three highest scoring losers.

The other two highest scoring losers were the Friends of Kadzinuni, who also scored 49 points but lost by a higher margin than the Scouts, and Probus with 48.

The Second Round matches take place on the 25th February and 4th March, both evenings starting at 7.30pm.

The first match was the highest scoring of the Quiz so far this year with an aggregate score of 118. The Methodist Church were the winners with 70 but the Probus team did well in the B & B to score 48 and have a chance of progressing as a highest runner-up.

Match 2 saw the Guitar Club beat the Tennis Club fairly easily with the decisive round being the B & B where they scored 37-2 as Tennis gave away several points by jumping in too early.

A new team for 2018 were the Taverners led by Rich Cooper, former Quiz Master of the Keyworth Tavern Quiz Night. The team performed well but despite winning the B & B round they were beaten by the always competitive 2017 winners South Wolds Staff.

Our final match was a close one with the scores going in to the B & B round at 31-30 with Willow Brook School only one point ahead of the U3A Too team. Even half way through the B & Bs the scores were equal, but Willow Brook's experience told and they were 57-43 winners.


2019 Village Quiz is off to an exciting start

The opening night of the 2019 Quiz was attended by one of our largest ever audiences with over 110 people there before the refreshment break. As usual, they were treated to some exciting matches.

The Quiz was opened by Brian Lund who has a long involvement in the Quiz as a contestant, winner and as Quiz master. Thanks to Brian.

The opening match saw 8-times Quiz winners BGS beat Crossdale who missed their captain and Bell and Buzzer expert Mr McKenna. A Dad's Army round proved troublesome for the younger team from Crossdale after they stormed the Islands of the British Isles first round.

The U3A Pals were on typical B & B form taking 26 of the 50 points to go from a one-point lead to a final 11-point winning margin against the Friends of Kadzinuni. The Friends look in a strong position for one of the three highest runners up spots with their 49-point losing score.

The South Wolds Sixth Form Students are always popular with the audience and this year was no different with Ed, Harry, Verity and Ben only 5 points behind the Allotments after the first three rounds. They beat the Allotments on the round about the 2010s. The B & B round is an Allotments specialism though and they ran out 51 -38 winners.

The final match between the Labour Party and the Parish Church was very equal until the B & B round and even then, very close, until the last few questions. The Labour team finally got into their stride to pull away for a 59-47 win. Will 47 be enough for the Parish Church to get a runners-up spot in Round 2? We recommend that the audience come back next week to find out!

Thanks to the Scouts for also serving the refreshments.

Favourite question of the night:

In the news: In an accident that occurred near Sandringham last week where a Land Rover Freelander overturned, how old was its driver ?
