To quiz or not to quiz answers … and more

April 3, 2012 in Housekeeping, Quizzes

Firstly, I must say thank you to Evelyn for her report on last Friday night’s quiz. I still cling on to a hope that some day she’ll see the light regarding quizzing… 😉

After the break, you can see the answers to the picture rounds she included in her post, To quiz or not to quiz.

In other news:

  1. I am the host at Gilligan’s Tuesday night quiz this evening. Please feel free to come on in if you’re in the neighbourhood (of Claremorris). Admission, as always, is €3 per person.
  2. Following a great win by Team B last Thursday night, the first series of After the Fact has gone in to extra-time. The (definitively) final showdown takes place this Thursday as Andrew and Marcella take each other on without the assistance of team-mates. You can listen in on Claremorris Community Radio at 7pm on Thursday night or prepare yourself by listening to our previous shows.
