The NOW quiz night takes place at the Blue Stone Room's 'Believe it or not!' quiz night on a Wednesday. If you've even been you'll know that it gets packed out on a normal night, so with 30 odd NOW Consultants packed in on top, there wasn't a spare seat in the house.
Not that we're competitive, but this year we stuck with the same teams as 2017, slugging it out for 2018 bragging rights and the chance to knock team 'NOW What?' of their perch! (let's just say that the 2017 bragging rights were well used!).
Whatever team you were in, the 2018 quiz was hard. When the half time scores were read out, compared to last year scores dropped and heads followed.
8 quiz rounds later, the results were in. Chris Wyllie's 'NOW What?' team could not be dethroned, once again taking top spot, followed closely by Amit Shah's 'NOWhere'. The other three teams formed a pack at the back, almost 15 points adrift of the leaders.
The night was not without it's excitement with NOW CEO David Morris celebrating his ?!th birthday. His search for the person who asked the MC to kick off a pub wide rendition of happy birthday is still ongoing.
The aftermath of the quiz has been eventful, and it sure to increase the rivalry. We've had accusations of cheating, from peering over shoulders to lip-reading. There do appear to be cracks in the armour of the top team, with factions already forming to cull any poor performers. It's tough at the top.
Well done team 'NOW What?', 2018 is yours. Bring on 2019!
