Lambert Chapman LLP entered a team into a Quiz Night which was organised as part of the 13th Colne Engaine Festival.
There were 24 teams taking part in the Quiz and the Lambert Chapman team was made up of: Lucy Orrow, Mike Carabine, Richard Hamilton, Sarah Hamilton, Ross Cook, Tara Gorton, Jack Webb and Emily Gould.
Being an active member of the village, Lucy had told the team that it would not be quite the same as the corporate quizzes that we usually enter and this proved to be case from the outset when several team members wore hats to fit in with the theme of the evening.
Some members of the team – known as ‘Lamboater Capman’ for the night – started work on the marathon round questions, on Football Club badges and anagrams of Classic British Sitcoms whilst others concentrated on the Mad Hatter round, where teams had to make millinery creations from balloons.
The main quiz rounds included questions on Myths, Science and Nature, Music Lyrics, Sidekicks, General Knowledge and a Connections round.
The Lambert Chapman team played well throughout the evening, scoring highly on most rounds. However, leaving the Joker until the penultimate round meant that it was not clear where the team was placed until towards the end.
Top marks on the marathon round and a strong Joker round resulted in Lambert Chapman winning the quiz with 111 points from a possible 120.
The team won a cash prize but collectively decided to donate this back to the Village fund.
Our thanks go to Stephen (the quizmaster), Juliet(who did the scoring) and The Five Bells Pub which provided the fish & chip supper at the interval.
