Yes, the curtain falls on the Cup Final, the last gasp of the 2013-14 Macclesfield Pub Quiz League, a season that saw several ups and downs and was in all probability completed thanks to the National Health Service to which several of us owe a big debt of gratitude.
The finalists this year were the Dolphin Dragons, proudly sporting their TV star Liz, old stalwarts of the A League and a serious (if friendly) force to be reckoned with.
Facing the Dragons were the new kids on the block, the Waters Green Rams who have made remarkable progress in the past couple of years and have just won promotion to the A League and pass the Lemmings on their way down.
It was a closely fought contest with a fine set of questions prepared by the Knot ‘Arf and the Weaver from questions offered by all teams in all three Leagues. The contest was overseen with a light touch by Rick Davies as questionmaster, and very few questions were not answered. Except for the last round there was very little in it, but the Rams put in a storming finish to win the game with 112 to 97.
Congratulations to the Rams for winning the double – top of the B League and Cup Champions – an excellent season. Well done!!!
A thrilling end to a season that despite ups and downs still ran like clockwork for which the committee must be congratulated.
