Junior Quiz
There was huge excitement in the Juvenile Quiz (Team “Reynolds & Co.” were judicious victors) with smile of the day going to Aifric Patchell winner of the Mini iPad!  Thanks to Claire McGoldrick & her host of invigilators for managing such a large turn-out!  

Main Quiz
The Adult’s Quiz was closely contested with “The Accountants”surging into a tie for 1st place with a perfect double-points final round!  Alas they were undone by a mis-placed decimal in the tie-breaker and over-shot the moon!  Defending Champions“Alternative Facts & Figures” stole the show again and the Winner-Takes-All Prize!

Special Thanks
We are indebted to Peter & Tara Cosgrove, their family & friends for writing, running and collating such a brilliant event for the 5th Year Running and helping to raise funds for our much-loved and admired Juvenile Section.  THANK YOU from all at Blackrock Athletic Club.
