Army Manoeuvers At Quiz

'Oliver's Army' were definitely on their way at the PSDS Annual Quiz Night, Friday 23rd November. On their way to the top spot of the leaderboard where they finished up after 8 challenging rounds of questions including general knowledge, music, current affairs, hobbies & leisure and geography, plus a famous faces picture quiz.

With 17 teams and over 100 eager quizzers in the room, it was a full house at Redhill and Reigate Golf Club who hosted our quiz once again. The golf club did a great job keeping refreshments flowing and served a delicious curry supper at "half time". 

After a hotly contested battle, 'Oliver's Army' manoeuvered in to first place with a very impressive score of 85, narrowly beating last year's winners, 'Aww Diddums' and new-comers "Them From Up The Road' who tied for second place with 81 points each. At the other end of the leaderboard, 'We're Only Here For The Prosecco' were also here for the chocolates which they received along with a special wooden spoon award for being the team 'best at not winning'.

A grand total of £2,012.87 raised at the Quiz Night will be used by PSDS to continue providing services and support for children and young people with Down syndrome and their families. A fantastic result all round.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the Quiz and to our Quiz Master, Simon Edmands, who once again did a briliant job keeping order, working out the scores and giving our grey matter a good working out too! We are also very grateful to everyone who donated prizes and to all who bought raffle tickets, entered the Booze Bonanza and bid in the auction.

The only question left unanswered from the Quiz is whether 'Oliver's Army' really are here to stay, or whether a new team will be on their way to victory next year...?
