Shed, Swamp or Soil?

Pens and paper were ready from the get go for Round 1. But what does Slough mean? To shed, a swamp or ye olde word for soil. All of the above! You could Bet(jeman) the quizzers were able to answer these questions, with their sound knowledge of Slough. But where are those ‘twinned with’ signs? The next GoodGym task maybe?!

Every Step You Take..(per minute = cadence)

It was quick off the blocks and the quizzers were in a League of their Own as they all (Eli)ud a go at the answers for Round Two. This round focussed on GoodGym and running facts and figures. From Moab Red Hot in USA to Windsor Castle, the quizzers looked puzzled. Was it 28/29 on that day in July?.....

Bootscootin’ Baby was driving us Crazy..

Pete was Never Gonna Give You Up…It was a count-up (1,2,3,4) 5,6,7,8 for these Simple Minds to have a go at this Music and TV round. We all had a singalong to complete a lot of Trivia (Newton John) questions as well as some classic TV buff-stuff. Sadly, no Quiztina Aguilera songs though…

Reading or Reading?

Notably the Quizmasters favourite round as most of his pursuits are trivial….A British town linked to reading and digging through to Spain. But who knew that a Zeedonk, Silly, Billy and a Pratt would pop up. However, there weren’t any idiots in this round. Just a few Mountain Chickens….

And finally, a bonus round, to win or lose! The universally challenged Goodgymers presented their random items (a cuddly, furry, cute teddybear and a couple of elephants) and totted up their Scrabble scores. It was Festivus for the rest of us, as Quiz Queen Jen was punstobbable in regaining her winning crown – Well done Jen!

Here’s to another quiz in two weeks, when it’s the turn of second place finisher, Meera, to host!
