Event: District Quiz, Monday 12 March

What: Cubs from across Petworth and Pulborough District will come together for their annual general knowledge quiz evening on Monday 12 March. We expect that it will be a real mixture of old fashioned pub quiz style general knowledge (questions from the front), pictures, memory tests, brain teasers and of course some scouting history thrown in. This year the quiz is being organised by  scouts from the West Sussex contingent at the World Scout Jamboree in USA (which takes place in 2019).

Where: Billingshurst Primary School. We are told that the Primary School was too expensive for us to use and that a new venue is being sought. Venue now confirmed as St Mary’s Rooms in East Street. Parking is limited so please leave it for those travelling from outside the village. Parents are welcome to stay (and may be asked to form an adults team).

When: The quiz will start promptly at 6pm and is expected to finish by 8pm

Cost: There is an entry fee of £5 per team but that will be paid by Parbrook Cubs

Bring: Although drinks will be provided, Cubs are asked to bring some money to purchase cakes and biscuits in the break. This is part of the Jamboree contingent fund raising.

Wear: Uniform should be worn

Who: Each team must be made of 4 Cubs with a spread of ages. We can enter multiple teams but each must contain 4 Cubs with no reserves. If you would like to be part of our team please reserve your place via My Scout.

Guest list at 6 Mar: Lukas, Adam, Harry L, Jasmine, Martha, Joshua, Izzy, James (8)
We need 8 Cubs to make up two teams

As introduced in 2016, there will be a Joker round where you can choose to play your joker and get double points on the round. There will be 9 rounds of 10 questions (giving 90 points + 10 extra for Joker round = 100 points)

If any adults who are attending the evening wish to make up some “fun” teams and take part, they are most welcome. There is no team entrance fee for this but obviously you cannot win!
