Head of the class

September 26, 2012 in Interactive, Quizzes

The first of the Autumnal series of quizzes, in aid of Liam’s Wheels, took place in The King’s Head, in Galway, on Monday night last.

It was all put together in under a week, as we decided we’d need to have the first quiz take place in September.  Linked in to this decision was the theme I’d chosen for the questions: Back to school.  It’s still topical now.  Next month, not so much.

The short-notice also affected the promotion of the event by the King’s Head staff but, in spite of my own fears, a very impressive crowd of 26 tables turned up!

The quiz itself flew by, with the final results being announced at the unusually early time of 11.05pm.  I think the audience appreciated the unusual nature of the questions but I must put my hand up and admit that I got one wrong.  It was pointed out to me almost instantly and, as it had been in the round before the break, we were able to rectify the scoreboard before the second half begun.  No harm done, therefore, but it was still very embarassing as it must be several years since I last let a wrong answer stray under my radar.  For the record, turtles are reptiles, not amphibians. 🙁
