As defending champions, we got our quaran-team together again and polished up our inaugural trophy, ready to take on all-comers at the Insurance Network’s annual quiz night at the Pioneer Women’s Hall on High Street.
Fun, food, wine and prizes for the best-dressed Christmas attire as the team drank, ate and laughed our way through ten topics, choosing History for double points and finishing in a tie with MinterEllison after the Organising Committee, who won with the most points, had to forfeit the title because, well … they were the Organising Committee.
The tie was broken in a sudden death quiz-off … with Akshay coming to the rescue identifying ‘seven swans a-dancing’, which was close enough to sweep the field and retain the trophy.
Thanks to all our team members – Andrew, Jack, Kate, Akshay, Antonio and Megan – for bringing home the bacon again and thanks to the sponsors – Hesketh Henry, JBHiFi Insurance Solutions, Sedgwick, Heaney and Partners and Wynn Williams – for such an exceptional night.
We promise the trophy will be well looked after until next year.
