Meadow Enders Triumph at FOBS Quiz Night!
Congratulations to seasoned local quizzers the Meadow Enders who were victorious in this year's FOBS Adult Quiz Night held at The Bell Inn Bosbury!
The Ledbury-based quiz aficionados finished top with an impressive total of 94.5 points following a consistent performance all evening over Mr. Ponter's challenging eight rounds of questions based on different game shows, seeing off strong late comebacks from Bosbury-based sides The Three Amigos, Bos-Squad and The Deadbeats.
Bookies' favourites and champions last year Mrs. Thompson's team unfortunately had to pull out of the competition at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances, while the formidable Bosbury Dads' team of The Flatwood Roberts were narrowly leading all evening until a gamble too far on the final infamous Who Wants To Be A Millionaire round unfortunately cost them both £3,000 and the title.
Congratulations to the Meadow Enders who now get to hold on to the prestigious FOBS Quiz Night trophy as they will no doubt return in twelve months' time to fend off the next challengers. A bank-breaking £96,000 was also giving out in total during the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire round as three teams reached the £32,000 milestone after knowing that the Chinese Grand Prix is held in Shanghai and not the capital Beijing, and so we hope that FOBS have a magnificent Summer Fair and Bostival event in a few weeks' time in order to recoup all of this prize money!
Thank you to Mr. Ponter for all of his hard work in compiling and presenting the quiz, to FOBS Chairpersons Marianne Bailey and Kate Gatfield-Soloman for booking the venue and providing the prizes, to Dave and Lisa Grimes of The Bell for accommodating the event and of course to everyone who came along to put their knowledge to the test on the night!
Can anyone beat the Meadow Enders next year...?
