That's January's icy blast done according to the weather, winter might return in a couple of weeks but up until then there's nothing much to fret about apart from the Christmas Credit Card bill, where you are going for your summer holidays and making sure you join us for the Monday Night Quiz at The Colly!
It's always a laugh, whether it be the subject of the questions, the comments of the Teams or even the customers who turn up halfway through a Quiz and bellow at each other whilst the questions are being read out... there's always a chuckle to be had. Some weeks there's only £50 or so Quid to win whereas some weeks there's over £100 and once we even got as high as £300 plus as a Cash Prize. So there's money to be won as well as a canny night out.
This week we start with £38 in the kitty after the Food Vouchers were won at Quiz 203 so a decent turnout on the night and we could be looking at nearly £70... nice!
The Quiz starts at 9.00pm with a Picture Round* (The clue this week is "Will you recognise these short Katherine's?"). Following the Pics we then have four rounds of General Knowledge, Music, Sport and Film and TV with a five minute break for the free snacks and topping up drinks after round two.
The winners of the nights Quiz choose from three envelopes that contain either the cash prize, food vouchers or a case of drinks. If the cash isn't drawn it rolls over to the next weeks Quiz, the biggest cash prize to date is £317 won by Hand Over The Cash Michaela 25/03/13 in Quiz 63.
The winners of last weeks Quiz were Only Half Way Through January & The Bodies Are Piling Up who just won by one solitary point from The Hasty Puddings. The winning Team then pulled the envelope containing the Food Vouchers so the £38 Cash Prize rolls over to Quiz 204.
After the Quiz we have a Wild Card Question which anyone in the bar can join in for a quid (or if you want two goes it's £2, three £3 etc). It's one obscure question where we are looking for a number or date and the nearest to the actual answer gets the whole pot of money taken for the Wild Card on the night. We had a reasonable £25 Cash Prize for Quiz 203s Wild Card and our lucky winner was James who was just one closer to the actual answer than guesses by Gary Carr and Scoop. Our biggest Wild Card winner to date is Mike H who scored for a massive £61 in Quiz 177!
Come and join us for Colly Quiz 204, it's always a decent Monday night out and as James will tell you, even if your Team are ring rusty in the actual Quiz it's still well worth putting a quid on the Wild Card!
