National Quiz Final

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.

WELL DONE and GOOD LUCK

The AREA 5 QUIZ was hosted by Cheshire Hunt North Branch on Saturday. March 6th. It took place online with the help of Bramham Moor Branch and thank you to Joan Deakin and her team for all their hard work.
 
Well done to those Branches who raised Teams to compete and support this competition. It is as much work to put it on for 6 teams as it is for 20 !
 
RESULTS can be found on the main PC website ( Ponyclubresults.co.uk ) but the winning Branches were ChHNorth AND Sir WWW who could not be separated – even after a tie break round ! Scoring 57/70 each.
Gwynedd Branch did well and came 3rd.
 
  • ChHNorth members were: Bella Craggs, Daisy Caldwell, Ellie Thomas and Hannah Pedley.
  • Sir WWW members were: Hope Hancock, Jemima Young, Lucy Fox and Scarlett Gilruth.
Congratulations to those teams.
 
Only one Centre competed – GORSWEN on Anglesey – and with 2 teams – one of which were the overall winners with a score of 64/70. So a special well done to them.
  • The team was: Skye Clarke, Niamh Reid, Lili-Wyn Furlong and Lauren Hodgson.
The Final of the Quiz is taking place on Saturday April 24th. We wish these 3 teams the very best of luck at the Final and thank you for representing Area 5.

VERY WELL DONE …

… to the two teams who represented Area 5 at the National Quiz Final held online last week. The teams were from Sir Watkyn Williams Wynn Branch and Gorswen Centre in Anglesey.  There were 23 teams altogether.  The Sir WWW team came 4th and Gorswen were 7th.  What an amazing result and thank you for doing such a good job !  Full results can be seen on the following link –

Apparently, it was a very long night finishing with a pizza ! The teams were –

WWW (left in photo) – Pip Young, Kate Rutherford, Lucy Fox and Scarlett Gilruth.  Three of this team have attended Area 5 online training so perhaps that helped a little.  The Gorswen team (right in photo) was Lauren, Branwen, Niamh and Skye pictured round the table on the night.

Centre Wins Top spot at the Area 5 Quiz

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.
