DDLS Annual Quiz 15th November 2017


With the departure of Peter Ball from his post as Administrator of the DDLS in May the future of the Annual Quiz looked to be in doubt but you cannot keep a good quizmaster down and Peter once again set a challenging but fun Quiz which was enjoyed by the 70 or so entrants at the Cricket Club on Wednesday 15th November.

The night was won by the IP Intellectuals from Swindell & Pearson (Natasha Hybner, Marcus Cavalier, Martin Terry and Michael Loadman). They scored an amazing 156 points – 89%. They were pursued all evening by the No-Gropers (which all sounds a bit Benny Hill) from Derby City Council who were let down by the “recent news” round. As this is not the first time they have finished in second place may I respectfully suggest next year’s quiz name be “Always the Bridesmaid”.

The proud owners of the wooden spoons on the night, as Peter said at least they went home with something, was Nelsons Quizzy Rascals. Still smiling at least.

The table of scores is below so you can where you and your team finished.


Thank you to Peter Ball for setting the Quiz and asking the questions on the night and to his two assistants Christine Ball and my grumpy teenager Daniel, who in spite of himself managed to be quite impressed particularly with the links in the Photograph round.  Well done everyone.
