While the Brains of the Bay champions Wizard are off sunning themselves in gentler climes, the final quiz of the 2023/24 season took place on Wednesday, 3rd April, when 18 teams joined us to dine ahead of a typically exasperating set of quiz questions. A competitive heat had several team teams lead the way through the evening, with Grasshopper, T.B.M., The Dirty Ruckers, and Celtic Boys all holding the lead at one point before Enchantress stayed on well in the home straight to storm clear.

It was some Enchantress-ed evening* (the Quizmaster has run out of magic-related puns) as Enchantress benefitted from a slip by T.B.M. to gain 2nd place in the overall series by the margin of a single point. Corner Boys did a Lazarus and came 4th, with Stars of the Sea continuing their good end-of-season form to take 5th spot overall. Former Commodore Martin McCarthy was on hand to present Enchantress their prizes on the night (pictured).

Through the winter, we had a big number of teams participate in the quizzes – 24 in total! – and each evening provides great competition and amusement. All members are encouraged to come along and join us in this enjoyable and sociable round of events. We will be back in October (dates to be confirmed) and all are welcome.

* You may see a stranger, across a crowded room, and somehow you know …. they know the answer, and you don’t!

Final Wine Supper of Season

Next Wednesday March 27th  will see the final wine supper of the season where will be joined by Iñigo Echávarri of Baron de Ley .

Iñigo was born in 1986, in Pamplona. He moved to Rioja as a child, and grew up visiting the vineyards surrounding his new hometown, Logroño, including summer work at Baron de Ley, where his father worked for 20+ years.

He participated in the harvest and worked in every single department of the winery since he was 16 years old.

He has been looking after the Export market as Manager, representing the new generation coming into the business with loads of energy and passion.  Iñigo is father of 2, currently lives in Logroño and speaks fluent English and Italian.

Please note the start time of 7.30pm and a great night is sure to be had by all.

Quiz update

The 10th instalment of our regular winter quiz series on Wednesday 20th March saw a return to the winners’ podium for T.B.M.   – the only team this year to have beaten Wizard in open competition. Enchantress came second with a posse of teams grouped in third.

On the overall Leaderboard, there is still strong competition for the overall 2nd place with T.B.M. leading Corner Boys and Enchantress for that coveted (sic) position, notable to posterity.

Our next and final quiz of the season takes place on 3rd April combining a dinner and a quiz – all participating teams should reserve a place in the dining room. We look forward to seeing you all there, when dining will commence at 7.30pm, with the quiz kicking off at c.8.30pm.
