My specialisms are Disney and Mythology. This clearly makes me an obvious choice for a charity quiz team.
Or rather Steve is a better choice and I tag along for the gossip and booze.
Strode Park Foundation, one of Kent's leading suppliers of specialist care and leisure services for children and adults with disabilities.
8 people in a team, over 30 teams all competing for the top three slots to get through to the regionals. It gets serious and people's competitive streaks come out!
The girls and I had our tactics. Closet ourselves at one end of the table, catch up with each other and let the boys fight it out.
Let's just call it rustic.
There was a definite mixed reaction around the table to the pickled anchovies. Steve and I love them. Others clearly less so!
The Quiz Master kept the pace going, moving amongst the crowd and engaging with as many tables as possible. You just hoped he stayed away from you for the questions you had no idea about!
To my shame I got the Disney question wrong. Cinderella's step sister names just flew out of my head! I DID get the mythology question right though, thereby justifying my place on the team!
There was a charity bar, a raffle and a round of Heads or Tails all to help raise money for the Strode Park Foundation.
Leaving two people standing at the end!
Finals are in December. Safe to say we didn't make it!
