Christmas Quiz – 19 December 2017

Our annual quiz evening began with a piece of poetry delivered by President Craig – something to do with an injured toe! It finished with a vote of thanks by Kenneth Dickie – something about two cows and a milk tanker! Our three guests that evening (Andrew Muirhead, Douglas Brown and Louden McAndrew) could be forgiven if they looked a little bemused.

Matters were made even worse when the “dreaded Willie Stewart” posed 25 devilishly hard questions in his annual quiz. The initial count indicated a tie but visitor Douglas Brown (he of Laurel and Hardy fame) saw off our own Paul Williams in a contentious decider question. Douglas shouted out the answer while Paul chose to write it down. The rules were seemingly somewhat obscure on such a situation but Douglas was awarded the tin of sweeties anyway.
