Despite being under instructions to lose the Inter Society Quiz, so that we would not be hosting it next year, the Midhurst Players team ( Joce, Ali, Nicci, Ben, Zillah & Dennis) could not resist the chance to retain the trophy. Even when they purposely gave the opposing teams a head start by scoring low in the first round, the opposition did not have the firepower in their numbers to prevent a repeat of last year’s success. Once again Haslemere Players ran in a good second; which can only be put down to slipshod finishing in the last third. Can anything stop a hat-trick of wins in 2018? With home advantage this is certainly on the cards.
Many thanks to the organiser Ali Locke and the catering manager, Stella Ansell & her team for making it an enjoyable evening for everybody and to Andy & Cathy Gilson for giving us a super set of questions.
