Fifteen teams of four members arrived for an afternoon of brain bending mental exercise applied by Peter and Ann Brown – namely the Pembrokeshire U3A Anniversary Quiz. The teams represented the range of activity available to U3A members from table tennis to music and we were joined by teams from neighbouring U3A in Preseli and Narberth. Some prepared by having a delicious meal at the Neyland Athletics Club while others opted for a quick coffee and a chat as preparations progressed. At 2.00pm the first of nine rounds commenced and throughout the afternoon the lead changed as questions on a wide variety of subjects prepared by Peter and Ann teased out brains.
In the end the French Group lead by Colin Thomas was victorious with a final score of 109 points, closely followed by the Narberth “Know-alls” and The Pembrokeshire U3A team “Densa” (not to be muddled with “Mensa”). A stimulating and enjoyable afternoon ably hosted by Peter and Ann. A vote of thanks was proposed by the Vice-Chair of Pembrokeshire U3A, Bob Matthews.
