This quiz proved a bit of a challenge! Apologies from me, your Quizmaster, Antony Mason (brother of Libby). You won’t ask me again any time soon – but you don’t have to: the Masons did not have any Habershons among them, as their usual Habershon contingent had scarpered to Australia!
Some of the questions were admittedly fiendish… Most of others seemed to me to be more or less within range… Heigh ho!
Anyhow, you can see a full list of the questions, answers and explanations by clicking here.
And now, here are the results of the Eighth Annual Habershons.com Quiz
There were four entries:
In 4th place, with 14 points, The Houston Habs (they had 7 participants, which knocked 3 points off their total).
In equal 2nd place, with 17 points each, The Castle Carey Habs (8 participants), and the Emsworth Habs (5 participants)
And the WINNERS for 2011… [overlong pause, as seen on TV]… are.. [another pause]… The BEDFORD HABS with 22 points (4 participants).
Congratulations, Bedford Habs! A £10 Amazon Gift Certificate on its way to you.
Yes, well done, Bedford Habs. Their team consisted of Paul, Pamela, and two bridge players. They were playing in a tournament in Chester at the time.
Thank you, Antony! We Houston Habs loved the quiz, even if we didn’t know the answers.
And now we need a volunteer for next year’s quiz.
