Our first #YorkWhizz pub crawl of 2015….
Despite rainclouds trying to put people off, we had 8 teams compete in our first official pub quiz crawl this year.
Roving quiz host John ‘the Enigmaster‘ Henderson set the questions and explained what the evening’s itinerary.
Registration and first round was at the Swan, before moving on to the Mount, Bay Horse, The Ackhorne (which even had a ukelele group to put the quizzers off their thinking!), Red Lion and finishing in the Rook & Gaskill. Luckily the weather held off once the quiz was underway and several teams from the participating pubs took part. There was even a team from York CAMRA headed by their chairman Christopher Tregellis. The questions were fiendishly clever with links which had to be worked out as you went along. John is no stranger to quiz writing as he supplies many to pubs in London. He also writes crosswords but that’s another story….
As the evening wore on, the majority started to concentrate on the drinking more, with less emphasis on working out the answers. Finally the results were in, with the winners pipping the runner-up by half a point!
With some freebies from us (QB pens didn’t arrive in time!) and the much coveted trophy went to the #YorkWhizz champions Starting Gate (From the Black Horse pub in Monkgate.
A big thank you to all the pubs and quizzers who came along, with a special thank you to John and his wife Jane who done so much preparation in making sure the evening was a success. It was!
