Barnsley Law Society threw down the gauntlet to JCI Barnsley to beat them at their own quiz in aid of Children in Need so 6 of us arrived at Chilli in Barnsley with enthusiasm and our winning caps on. Unfortunately that is where the word “winning” disappeared! With 6 rounds, 1 including a legal round and no sport round we were doomed from the start. We had taken our secret weapons, 1 sports journalist and 3 other’s with a keen interest in sport, and a reality tv/celebrity/twitter obsessive but this was useless!!!
To be fair, whoever wrote the quiz must have set out to pick the most obscure, weird and difficult questions ever as out of 40 points available, no-one in the room scored more than 15 so we didn’t feel too bad when we scored 14 and 12.
There was plenty of laughter at the lack of knowledge of everyone in the room, and the drinks and cheesy puffs were flowing and it was for charity so at the end of the day, that’s what matters!
Roll on the Wharfedale Quiz in 2012 when the questions seem to be easier to answers!!!
