Inter Club Night Quiz
4th February 2012

 

Last year was the first Inter-club quiz between SHVR and the Pontarddulais Classic Car Club based at our meeting at the Dunvant RFC.

February was the date for the return match on home ground for the Pontarddulais Club.

 The Pontarddulais Club meets in the workingmanís club in the centre of the town, with a small carpark adjacent to accommodate the memberís cars. It confirms how lucky we have been in finding a welcome at the Dunvant RFC with plenty of off-road parking.

 Our club had a good number of supporters to fly the flag and we commandeered a corner of the bar. The quiz format was a picture quiz and two rounds of two groups of ten questions, with a break for the buffet provided at the halfway stage. The food was provided by the ladies of the host club and the table strained under the weight of the food.

 Following the final question session, the papers were collected and the intense time of marking as quickly as possible was put into operation by the team from the host club.

 Once all the papers were marked, and the scores worked out. The room fell silent as the question master prepared to read out the final scores and read out the correct answers, funny how the right answer pops into your head just before the quiz master gives the answer. Two teams from the host club took the second and third places. In the end the SHVR team

P2MT (Peter, Patrick, Mike and Trevor) took the top prize by a small margin, but as they say, a win is still a win!

 The Pontarddulais Chairman presented an award on behalf of their club to the SHVR. Roger Gale accepted the award on our behalf as he was the only one who couldnít come up with a good excuse not to!

A good night was had by both clubs with a bit of banter leg-pulling with members from both clubs. Hereís to the next round.
