Stuart Garrold, the Quiz Master for the evening delivers different themed rounds, including picture rounds and general knowledge to the 90+ attendees. Needless to say there is a large amount of competition between the 16 teams present, with UpSticks holding onto the top spot for the third year running!

UpSticks winning team!

UpSticks winning team!

Stuart has successfully hosted the quiz for 19 years and we are expecting something spectacular for their 20th year in 2019.

Sarah Manton, our Educator and Husband Boomer Manton attend each year to help with the evenings events, including marking score sheets, holding a raffle of donated prizes from local businesses and a lucky dip. Some of the prizes which were donates to the quiz included a consultation with Andrew Gilmore, a local Osteopath and Physiotherapist, a tour of the Spirit of Yachts Yard at Ipswich Haven Marina, 2 tickets for the New Wolsey Theatre, meal vouchers and many many more.

The evening scores are always a close call with the winning teams, but UpSticks Ventures have won for the previous three years, with Hopkins Hopefuls coming a close second and Wonton Exchanges coming third.

The quiz is always in the lead up to Christmas, getting people into the Christmas spirit with food and wine on offer, and a great way for the teams to socialise outside of the office!

We thanks Birketts for holding this event for CCiS annually and are looking forward to seeing what the 20th year may bring!!
