West Herts Parkinson’s Quiz Night began with a packed room at Herts Bowling Club in Watford. The evening was divided into two halves by a buffet supper to sustain the competitors.  The questions were challenging and the final positions had the two leading teams within one mark of each other.  But the Unlikely Lot pipped the Dark Nights to the post.

As it was my team who won modesty forbids me to comment on the awesome breadth of knowledge displayed by my colleagues. I can, however, admit that anyone who knows that medieval Paris had to be defended against the Vikings might need to get out more.

More to the point, Ruth Venn once more has to be congratulated and thanked for her usual brilliant organisation. When we left the amount raised for the branch was not yet confirmed but it was likely to be several hundred pounds.

And we have here a photograph of the winning team (minus one of the members who was taking the photo).

A few more photos of the evening:
