Tie Breaker Settles Battle For First Place

Glendale Agricultural Society Annual Quiz Night a Resounding Success

The annual Glendale Agricultural Society (GAS) quiz night certainly had participants on the edge of their seats with a tie breaker deciding who took first place.  ‘Fake Facts’ pipped ‘Universally Challenged’ to the post and took the top spot.

Sponsored by H&H Land and Property and H&H Insurance Brokers, the society welcomed 16 teams to take part.  The winning team, ‘Fake Facts’, made up of David Wilson, Tom Johnson, David Farr and Neil Tait received a day for four at the races, kindly donated by Kelso Races.

Closely following in second place was team ‘Universally Challenged’ who each took home a membership to the GAS.  In third place was ‘Eric’s Angels’, made up of members of both the society’s own Horticultural and Industrial team and received a meal for four at the Tankerville Arms Hotel, Wooler.  Joint fourth place went to ‘Hillbillies’ and ‘Last But Not Least’ who each received a bottle of wine donated by Chatton Village Store.

“The quiz was a fantastic evening with some strong competition, and lots of fun was had by all,” said Rachael Tait, GAS Secretary.  “Thanks must go to Quiz Master, Ronald Barber, and also to H&H Land and Property and H&H Insurance Brokers for kindly supporting the evening.”

All team members enjoyed a pie and pea supper before the first round began.  The teams were put through their paces with eight question rounds and a picture round.  Last but not least, team ‘Not a Clue’ walked away with the wooden spoon.

Commenting on the evening, James Murphy, Principle Director at H&H Land and Property said:  “Alongside H&H Insurance Brokers, we were delighted to support the Glendale Agricultural Society’s annual quiz night.

“Although our team didn’t take home any prizes, we had a very fun evening and were thrilled to be part of what has become a highlight in the society’s calendar.”
