After a great Christmas lunch at Norwood Hall Hotel. It was time for the main event of the ever popular Executive Christmas Quiz with Team Challenge Company. There was a great crowd of 160 participants from Shell going head to head for the coveted Team Challenge Company Trophy.
It was an explosive start with Hit or Miss, all the teams were trying their hardest but in the end there could only be one winner and that was Brian from Team 8 taking away a well deserved 1000 points, the 2 people he was up against thought that "Hey Ya" wasn't a number 1 in the charts. Hang your head in shame! Haha.
The temperature was getting hot in the room as all teams were fired up and ready to go. The teams showed off their movie skills with most of the teams hitting top marks on the Name the Movie rounds but all communication must have broken down as they were shocking at General Knowledge Round tut tut.
Team 2 started to push themselves into contention as they showed off their skills in the Movie Quotes Round by getting full marks . Just so you know Team 2 not a lot of teams get full marks so give yourselves a pat on the back!.
The Christmas Music round was a great hit as they gave their all with a great rendition of all the Christmas Classics. There seemed to be a lot of humming on Table 6 from Linda but in the end they could sing them but not name the tunes. I blame Linda!!
After all the scores had been checked and verified by our score master Bob Scott, it was time to announce the Executive Quiz Winners & Losers. There was one team who deserved this Team Challenge Trophy and I think they knew who they were - the Big Cheaters from Table 15, remember lads keep the mobiles out of sight haha. There was one team who deserved the win and they tried so hard and with a shout of "Tights and No Knickers" it could only be one team - Team 10 a well deserved win!!!!
A big thanks goes out to Linda & Linda for organising a great day and we look forward to the re-match.
