Fundraising Quiz on behalf of the Cholsey Preschool – “And the Winner is…”

On Saturday the “Brains” of Cholsey got together to support the Cholsey Pre-School fundraising through a Quiz night in the Scout Hut.  An excellent evening was had by all, with some challenging and some not so challenging quiz questions, a curry, the auctioning of a Hot-air Balloon ride over Cholsey, and a raffle.  We don’t yet have the total value of the funds raised at the event, but we will tweet them once we have them.

The results of the quiz were very tight with the winners being decided in the last round.  The inappropriately named “Sensible Losers” came out on top, but only by half a point over the round 7 leaders “I would like to thank my mother”, with the third spot, only another half a point behind, them going to “3?”.

For those who want to analyse the results in more detail, the scoreboard is reproduced below:
