For the May social the Manchester Eunomian’s decided to return to the scene of their mediocre pub quiz performance and see if, one year on, they would be any more accomplished.
With the addition of Dan C and Mark everyone was feeling optimistic and looking forward to an improvement in knowledge in the music and sport rounds.
Drinks and food were ordered and the best table bagged as the underground bar started to slowly fill up. As the 1830 start time approached the pub remained quiet and everyone began confidently remarking how they could see a win against the minimal competition. As 1830 came and went and no quiz master was to be seen Kate enquired with the staff as to what was going on.
Unfortunately, it was the quizmasters holiday and although the event had been advertised on Facebook 24 hours earlier, it was in fact not on!
After paying up, everyone decamped to a sunny (it does come out in Manchester sometimes) bar for a celebratory drink – after all, we didn’t do any worse than last time.
