On Sunday 13th November, FPS took part in the annual LJ inter-synagogue quiz, this year hosted at Northwood and Pinner Liberal Synagogue. Our Team, made up of Paul Silver-Myer (Captain), Tony and Dorothy Hills, Bob Luder, Nigel Fawcett, Philip Karstadt, Gabriel Webber and Robert Lobatto, took an early lead breezing through rounds on Geography, History, and the rather unexpected Airline tailfin designs.
Fortified by an impressive tray of bridge rolls at the break, we entered the second half confident but aware of strong competition on our shoulder. A slightly under-par Marathon round allowed Elstree to ease past us, and despite some inspired answers on Music, Sport and ‘The Dead’, in second place we stayed.
Congratulations to the winners, and many thanks for my fellow Finchleans for their teamwork, patience, and ability to dig out obscure nuggets of information from their brains on a perfect autumn afternoon.
