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!
