Never in Question for Alfie’s Army

Saturday nights Jubilee quiz certainly got full marks from everyone who was there.

The social event followed hot on the heels of the afternoons racing up Hawick Mair.

Held in a cosy Evergreen Hall, the venue may have been a tad more favourable than the wet and windy racecourse but the occasion wasn’t any less competitive.

With all welcome,  47 highly accomplished brains, from both ends of the age spectrum, manoeuvred their way through Bruce’s testing quiz.

With questions suitable for young and old, nine mixed teams of canny competitors gave the old grey matter a thorough workout.

There was 126 points up for grabs and it would be Alfie’s Army who would claim the title with a whopping 106 points. Alfie Walker led the team to victory, ably supported by his army of Harrison Hughes, Andrew Gibson, Derek Ballantyne and Alan Coltman.

For Derek and Alan it was to be two quiz wins in a row as they once again climbed upon the top step and played a significant part in the winning team.

A huge thanks to everyone who came along and enjoyed their evening. One that certainly got louder and more excitable the later it got.
