Shaun Fisher

The marks this year have been particularly high with everyone getting over 35 out of 40 correct.  And for the first time the tie-breaker question has had to be used to decide the winner with 3 tying at the top (Shaun Fisher, Brian Lewis and Andrew & Alison Smith).  As two out of the three are known to the judge their tie-breaker questions have been sent anonymously to the 'Restore the Montgomery Canal Campaign' committee for a vote.

Several half marks were lost because some of the Monty's were not given their full title: Monty Don needed to be distinguished from Monty the Penguin or even Monty Mole!  Just plain Monty was not good enough for full marks.

Q9 New Plymouth is above this shawl:  the clue is in the shawl - Mount Egmont might  be above New Plymouth but has little to do with a shawl.

The winning  tie-breaker:

There's less to this venue than meets the eye, at least a king would think so

As it will be part of the next quiz you will have to wait for the answer.

Thank you all for taking part

Just to remind you the judge’s decision is right even when wrong!

Back by popular demand this quiz has used the tie-breaker questions from 2016.
