Agricola’s Quiz team recently took part in the 6th annual Maidstone Masonic Centre Quiz Night.
This annual competition for the “Brooks-Tozer Shield” seeks to raise both the intellectual ability of the members, as well as a significant sum for the improvement of the Centre.
However by the end of the evening it was generally accepted that whilst second objective had been achieved, the former “may be in doubt”.
Appearing for what was billed as the “Agro Cola” team were Malcolm & Janet Graham, Mike and Julie Spencer, Ian and Kellie Packer and Bob and Wendy Burns.
For the first time the eventual winners were the team from Fleur de Lis Lodge No 8969 who improved on their previous best position of 2nd.
However the “Agro Cola” Eggheads ended up a creditable 4th.
Secretary Bob Burns afterwards admitted that they would have come third if he had listened to Wendy who provided the correct answer to a critical question.
However the team displayed what Bob describes as…
“A good spread of useless knowledge”.
The evening raised the magnificent sum of £360.00 which will be donated to the Maidstone Masonic Centre for improving facilities for the members.
