The Quiz was held at St John’s Hall in Stoneleigh.
The attendance was high, possibly because there was a fish and chip supper along with the usual condiments arranged by Ken Amess. There were teams from 3 Probuses, Surbiton, Sutton and Ewell, The Question Master was Bill White who kept the grey matter working over 7 rounds and the score per team was kept by Tony Field. The MC was Roger Ranson who kept the gathering busy with his questions during the break.
As usual is Enfield an underground station, did you get a white feather when wearing a uniform, did orange carrots originate in Holland and many more to test the accuracy of the memory.
