THE MIDDLEWICH DIARY FESTIVAL QUIZ 2018 (ARCHIVED)




The competition will consist of five rounds:



1: The Canals of Middlewich.
The Trent & Mersey, the Shropshire Union and the diminutive Wardle Canal. From Rumps Lock to Croxton Aqueduct and from Stanthorne Lock to Brooks Lane Bridge....
what do you know about our town's fascinating network of canals?

2: MUSIC ROUND - The FAB Festival, past & present.
Five questions on this year's artists, and five questions on artists from  festivals past.

3: CALL MY BLUFF.
The ever-popular Call My Bluff in which Mr Roberts gives you three alternative meanings for ten obscure English words. Which is the correct one in each case?

4: DEAD OR ALIVE?
Another old favourite. Ten famous people. Are they still with us, or have they shuffled off this mortal coil?

5: PICTURE ROUND.
Ten pictures of people in the public eye at the moment. Who are  they?

Rules:


1. Teams can consist of as many (or as few) people as you like, but we recommend the traditional quantity of four. £1 entry fee per person.


2: The quizmaster's decision is final, no matter how drunk he gets.

3: No cheating. Or getting found out, at any rate.

4: Bribes enthusiastically accepted.

Question master: Dave Roberts
Quiz Co-ordinator: Peter Cox.

UPDATE: 15th June 2018
A hugely enjoyable evening with no less than SEVEN teams (actually five teams and two individuals) taking part. With the large amount of Thursday evening events going on around the town we had feared the worst, but the quiz turned out to be well worth doing. 
Among those present were Cllr Bill Walmsley, the Mayor of Middlewich (who, perhaps a trifle disconcertingly, found himself as one of the answers in the picture round)  and his wife, Cllr Bernice Walmsley.

Many thanks to those who took part, and also to those who donated prizes:

Peter Cox - box of biscuits, bottle of wine,
The Middlewich Diary - box of chocolates, bottle of wine, copy of 'Middlewich 1900-1950' by Allan Earl
Cllr Bernice Walmsley - box of chocolates.
The Boar's Head - bottle of wine.

And thanks to Pauline Harmer who made a donation to bring the funds raised for the Middlewich Appeal up to £70.

Here for the record, are the final scores (Totals are out of a maximum 50 points)

1st: 'Mr and Mrs Macbeth and the three witches' 31 points
2nd: Andy Craig 30 points
3rd: 'Dead' 29 points
4th: 'War Veterans' 26 points
5th: 'No Hopers' 24 points
6th: 'Just me' 23 points
7th: 'Room 101' 18 points


The next Middlewich Diary Quiz will be held at the Boar's Head at Christmas. Date to be confirmed.
