Two hundred people making nearly 40 teams headed down to Yager Bar in St Paul's for the 2015 SIAS pub quiz. Each team attempted a witty and imaginative team name with varying degrees of success. Some of my favourites were 'I thought this was speed dating' and 'TAS M-anian devils'. Nevertheless, the award for best team name went to Hiscox with 'I Know What You Did Last Quarter.'
Yager Bar served nachos and food platters throughout the evening and put on an extended happy hour to cure everyone's January blues! The quizmaster for the night was Nathan from QuizQuizQuiz who arranged challenging questions of all types. Sport, music, film, picture and general knowledge rounds were topped with a final where negative marking was introduced.
There was high scoring all round, however the winner of the quiz was 'Glass of milk at the Halibut' from KPMG. The team had been on a clear winning streak from the outset, getting all the general knowledge questions as well as being able to guess a Britney song from only the first three seconds - congratulations!
Thanks to QuizQuizQuiz, Yager Bar and all entrants for making the night such a success.
