Success at Eskmuthe Quiz Night

 

We won! This “silver” trophy was the prize won by “The Sea Dog’s Rollocks!” – a RowPorty team made up of Margaret O’Neill, Ian Campbell, Mhairi Sumner and David Calder.

We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time at the Eskmuthe Quiz Night in Musselburgh. The RowPorty crew joined teams from Boatie Blest and the home club in a thoroughly enjoyable evening, a mix of friendly competition and excellent curry!

There were six rounds in total, with subjects as varied as “sea areas and sea lanes” and films and television programmes where the sea played a significant part. Each team could play a “Joker” and gain double the points. The winning team scored 19/20 in the first round, one where they had played the Joker, and that set the pattern for the rest of the evening.

There was however more than just a quiz. There was also a game of bingo which another RowPorty team, made up of Max and Jess Blinkhorn and Michael Reville, won. Max also won a bottle of malt whisky in the raffle.

The trophy may look impressive on the table – but as you can see below, it is a somewhat less impressive prize when put into context!
