14th September 2023 - Fun Pub Quiz - Gerry Short

Gerry began by re-organising the table distribution to give us 3 tables of 8 Rotarians to tackle this fun event, so our table gained two ladies with Gerry T and Gail joining our 'Top table', but rather than conducting the process like in the good old 'Trevor Quizzes', he gave out a sheet with  30 questions on.  This caused some confusion on most tables as there were probably 3 sheets per table and we never really amalgamated our results, but worked in splinter groups, otherwise we may have finished 2nd instead of 3rd!

The quiz started reasonably well, then we got such questions as "which British city is the UK's Dyslexia Research Trust", which turns out to be READING, which could be construed as being funny. Then "which planet was the first to be discovered by a telescope?" Uranus, need I say more! During World War II what nickname was given to the British women who worked felling trees and in sawmills": Lumber Jills.... and so it went on.

However, the winning Brains Trust table of Adrian. Alan F, Denis,Bill, Chris B, Barry, Gordon and Derek produced a great score of 18 out of 30.  We obviously haven't acquired, as yet, the same sense of humour as our Irishman, but it was a good night of fun, with Steve L congratulating Gerry on his time, effort and delivery of the answers in his vote of thanks, which as usual produced an enthusiastic round of applause.       AR
