District Quiz

17 October 2015

Cubs and Scouts from across the Lowestoft district had their knowledge tested recently when they took part in a fun quiz. The brainteaser contest, which is an annual event, was held at the Poplars school in Lowestoft. The Quiz was divided into four rounds with questions on Scouting, general knowledge, music and a picture round – compiled by young people from the Explorer Scouts. Six Cub packs took part in the younger section with each team made up of six cubs, with two aged eight, two aged nine and two aged ten. Assistant District Commissioner Paul Cator was the question master for the Cubs quiz and he said, “it was a very close contest and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I never cease to be impressed by how much these youngsters know. The winners were 1st Pakefield with 1st Oulton Broad in second place and a tie for third place between 1st Blundeston, 1st Carlton Colville and 14th Lowestoft.  Meanwhile 10 teams of Scouts from seven troops battled it out in the older section with Assistant District Commissioner Mark Hansen awarding the winners trophy to 14th Lowestoft ‘A’, with second place going to 1st Oulton Broad ‘A’ and third place to 4th Lowestoft ‘B’ Scouts Quiz Winners 2015 Cub Quiz Winners 2015
