The annual TCD Botanical Society pub quiz was held on the 18th of November. As our luck would have it, it was at the same time as the Ireland qualifying game with France. This however didn’t dampen the spirits of the quizgoers, who turned up in full force on the night. We kicked off (geddit) at 8pm, with a total of eight teams (correct me if I’m wrong) participating with more turning up and joining the teams throughout the night.

The questions ranged from General Science to some light Botanically related ones to an image round of celebrities who have some form of tree/plant in their name. Many thanks to Brian for sorting out the questions. There were six rounds of ten questions each, with the final round consisting of a cryptic word game of popplar (!) trees.

The first prize of €100 Stena Line vouchers, a bottle wine and chocolate was awarded to team Stephen Hawking Karaoke Machine, who finished the quiz with 55 out of a possible 60. This score had nothing to do with the fact that they had Prof. Mike Williams and Prof. Fraser Mitchell in the team!

The second prize was awarded to team France who scored 53 out of 60. They however didn’t have any eminent professors in their team so double kudos to them! They took home a bottle of wine and some chocolates. Many thanks to all the competing teams and the everyone who helped out on the night! Couldn’t have done it without you guys.
