A flock of Swallows swooped on Çalış on Saturday night and flew away with the Super Quiz cup – for the third year running!

The annual challenge quiz, now in its 5th year, organised by the Çalış Children’s Charity to find the best quiz team in the local area, took place at Da Vinci Restaurant on Çalış seafront, Fethiye.

Nine teams from as far away as Uzumlu and Oludeniz, accompanied by many of their supporters, took part in the challenge quiz with one aim in mind to win the coveted title of 3C’s Super Quiz Champions 2012 and to be presented with the shiny new Super Quiz Cup, theirs to keep for one year.

Competition was fierce with 3 teams jostling for the lead in the early stages.

They were joined by a fourth in the second half. In the end, after 135 questions only one and a half points separated the winners “Swallows A” team (above) from local Çalış quizzers “Bostans” (pictured below).

This is the second time that “Swallows A” team have taken the title back up the hill to Hisaronu as they also won in 2010. Last year the cup was won by their friendly rivals “Swallows B” team.

3C’s Chairman and quizmaster Peter Clark, presented the Oludeniz team with the cup and congratulated all of the teams that took part. He also thanked the owners and staff at Da Vinci restaurant for hosting the event and providing free pizzas for the teams and supporters.

The final results were:

1. Swallows A 145.5

2. Bostans 144

3. Teradactyl 138.5

4. The Nomads 137.5

5. Dolly Mixtures 136
