The Thame Town CC quiz went digital on Friday May 1st as Dave Saunders’ all-star team took the spoils in a thoroughly enjoyable virtual event.
Quizmaster Paul Furness delivered a wide range of questions, live from what may have been his garage.
Questions remain unanswered as to the exact designation of the room Paul was hosting from, but the combination of fitness equipment, extensive filing space and a high-spec vacuum cleaner suggest he may plan to remain there for the foreseeable future. A huge thank you to Paul for all of his hard work in preparing an absolutely brilliant quiz.
Paddy Harris provided outstanding support as Zoommeister, expertly balancing the duties of MC, DJ and IT Help Desk.
In an unexpected turn of events the ‘A Question of Sport’ Team Captain Matt Dawson stepped in for a cameo appearance in the victorious 18-strong squad assembled by Dave Saunders.
Dawson – Who has pledged to join in with literally any quiz he’s invited to during lockdown – confirmed via Twitter it was his 130th quiz so far.
With all cricket currently suspended, and club members unable to meet in the normal way, this virtual social event proved an excellent initiative.
Whether or not the nation’s appetite for quizzing is still climbing or has passed its peak remains unclear. For those interested in another one, head to YouTube on Thursday night after the clap for Rob’s BIG Quiz, in support of the Ruth Strauss Foundation.
