Nine teams of 4 battled through 9 rounds of questions and picture boards with the eventual team winners being headed up by Alan Towns, well done! Past Dean of Guild Fred Dalgarno was quizmaster setting some challenging but fair questions covering a multitude of topics. At the end of the quiz Fred advised that after many years this is his last one as quizmaster he wants to take part next year! So we are on the lookout for a replacement. Lord Dean Colin Taylor gave his thanks to Fred and also all the staff at the cricket club for their hard work in making the quiz a success. ...
