SPR Bonfire Night Virtual Quiz
5th November 2020

The Society’s second virtual pub quiz of 2020 remained true to its tradition of intriguing questions and competitive participants.  Some eight enthusiastic SPR members – split into three mixed teams – took the chance to enjoy the networking opportunities and intellectual challenge the quiz offered.  A lot of thought and effort by the three quizmasters – Lucy Greenwood, Andrew Marston and David Inskip – had clearly gone into the organisation and content of the event.  Perhaps the lure of fireworks and sparklers proved too much on the evening for more members to join!

After rounds on the natural world, connections, Guy Fawkes Night and general knowledge, as well as a picture round identifying confectionary brands from a letter on their wrapper (see below), the team of Danielle Sanderson and David Rae emerged victorious.  The contest was closely fought from round to round, at least until the final tally when the team named QFH (Quizzing From Home) realised they had spent too much time networking to focus properly on the sweet wrappers, and fell into a distant third place.  But were they the real winners by getting to know fellow SPR members better?!
