The Big Quiz

 It was a full house of supporters for the Cardiac Rehab Big Quiz at Alton House Hotel on Thursday 22nd March. With 11 tables including two from our sponsors Sheen Stickland, the challenge was on for The Sheen Scribblers to retain their 2017 1st place trophy!

Our quiz master for the evening Mayor Dean Phillips kicked off the night with the first four rounds from Fictional places, Food and Drink to Geography and TV. By the half time supper break NFU's team NFU et al were inching ahead with a 3-point lead from the Sheen Scribblers who were one point ahead of the Stickland Scribes. The Wild Ones at this stage could well have been the wild card trailing in last place!
By the second part of the evening the competition was hotting up and some excellent history buffs for our WW1 round with the Wild Ones, Pieces of Eight, Dirty Dozen and The Socialites all scoring a full house for this round!
The logos round showed the magical effects of marketing with the Sheen Scribblers taking this round and Hugh's hopeful's seemingly retired from it!
The famous places round was a high scoring round for most teams although Soldridge Analytical were clearly too busy on facebook to make the effort!
The True/False round weeded out the medical professionals from the not so with some confusion in regard to the number of bones in the feet, however they seemed to redeem themselves remembering the human lungs have a surface area of approx. 70 square metres, phew! 

The winners (and the losers!!) of the evening go to;
1st place – NFU's et al
2nd place Sheen Scribblers
3rd place Pieces of Eight!

The Cardiac Rehab staff team The Tickers played an honourable role – enabling none of the guests to take the 'wooden spoon' that's sportsmanship! 

Congratulations NFU et al! You have been crowned the new Brainiac's of Alton!

Sheen Stickland our sponsors for the evening, Robert Simmons Solicitors, NFU Mutual and Alton House Hotel and those that came to support on the night, we raised just over £1,000 for the charity.

"We believe as a local business it is important to support community initiatives and local worthy causes such as this one. It was fantastic to see so many other local businesses and fellow quiz fans following suit by entering teams and ensuring the event's success. It was a great event, and both an honour and a pleasure for Sheen Stickland to have taken part and given our support."
