It was both a battle of the elements and a battle of the brains recently when quiz teams from across the Fethiye area braved torrential rain and thunderstorms to attend the annual Super Quiz for the 3C’s Challenge Cup.
Eleven teams from across the area packed into the Sevi Classic hotel in Çalış to take part in the marathon eight round quiz presented by quizmaster and 3C’s Chairman, Peter Clark.
The quiz also included two taxing table top rounds to really test the grey matter.
Swallows dip out
With four times Champions “Swallows” of Hisarönü and Ölüdeniz not defending their title this year, competition was fierce to lift the cup.
Krackers and Scrambled Eggheads top the menu
Throughout the night Fethiye team Kosem Krackers led the way with several teams snapping closely at their heels but when the table top rounds were finally added to the scores, Scrambled Eggheads took the lead by a narrow two points.
During the evening a raffle was held to raise money for the 3C’s charity and the winner of the first prize generously donated it back to be auctioned swelling the total raised for the charity to 475TL.
Peter Clark thanked everyone for taking part and then presented Butch of the Sevi Classic with a certificate of thanks for hosting the event.
The final results
Out of a possible total of 151 came:
Scrambled Eggheads 112
Kosem Krackers 110
Melek Mob 105
Meri Men and Women 89
Me, Thee and He 85
The Last Resort 71
