JS Quiz 2014/15

Posted on: Monday, February 09, 2015

11 teams from 8 Companies met at Portobello & Joppa Parish Church Hall on Friday 6th February 2015 for the 4th Annual Junior Section Quiz Night.

First to prove they were a team of Masterminds were 61st Musselburgh who won the Marathon round.  This is a list based part of the quiz and runs over the course of the evening; e.g. can you name the 9 countries of the world that start with the letter ‘I’? (the answer is at the end of the article)

The main quiz covers a variety of knowledge from art & literature through to zoology and everything else in between.  At the end of 4 intense rounds of questions and answers only 0.5 a point separated the top 3 sides. 

So, commiserations go to The Flying Brains and The Boyz, who were so close to winning and finished joint second with 43.5 points; but a huge congratulations goes  to the Banta Fanta's who won with a very impressive 44 points out of a possible 47.
