Gorswen Centre, Holyhead on Anglesey won the Area 5 Quiz qualifier (they beat the Branches too !) and went forward to the National Quiz Final held April 24th. The team was Niamh, Lauren Hodgson, Skye and Lili.
After the first round they were lying first, then slipped to 8th! They almost lost hope as they didn’t think they would come back from that but then the team achieved full marks in their Pairs sections which pulled them up. The team was delighted to do so well in such a high class competition. They came 3rd — only being 3.5 points behind the winners.
The Centre is to be congratulated on this result and well done to Ruth Owen (BHS reg) who runs the Centre and to Lauren Hodgson (Captain) for training the Team. The Centre has 21 members.

Aberconwy hosted the Area 5 Quiz on March 17th in Eglwysbach village hall. It was a very exciting afternoon as the points were so close. Running totals were given out after every few rounds which added to the atmosphere. Thank you to Aberconwy Committee and to the scorers who produced the final results very quickly inspite of having to do a recount because the points were so close.
