A Great First Quiz Night!

What did John Hinckley do to try and catch the attention of Jodie Foster in 1981?

This is just one of the questions posed at the first Community Quiz Night hosted by Barnwell Baptist Church on Friday 27th April. Helped along by a delicious chilli meal, nine dubiously named teams, including 'The Soggy Brains', battled it out for the top spot.

The evening was a great success with plenty of laughs, and no shortage of competitive spirit and ignorance on show! All £215 raised will help to fund the Dudley Road Street Party. This event, to be held on Sunday 3rd June from 3pm, will offer the local community a fun-filled opportunity to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Above, the victorious 'Highs & Lows' team, with a winning score of 67.5! The joint runners-up were '4 girls & a Guy' and 'Friday Fatigues' both scoring 66.

We're planning our next Quiz Night for Friday 28th September 2012 which will be in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support (as part of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning weekend) - more details to follow. It won't be a James Bond theme as mentioned at the last Quiz Night - we're planning that as a separate evening on Friday 16th November 2012.

[By the way, the answer to the question: John Hinckley shot Ronald Reagan!]
