Easter & Royal Wedding Quiz Run

The winning team: Val and Andrew finishing together

An overcast, windy and nippy morning witnessed the third running of the ERN Easter Run/Hunt/Quiz. This year it also competed with a Royal Wedding! Based from Portobello Swim Centre, teams of two tried to collect as many points as possible within the allocated hour period. Points were also deducted for each minute they were late back! The furthest clues were worth more points, with a potential total of 72 on offer, but as the clues were widely spread out over the area, the canny selection of routes was as important as speed. Congratulations to Val and Andrew who took first place and also, many thanks to Krista for photos and administration. All stayed back for a coffee and the prize giving – The winners received Fredo and Curly-Wurly Easter Eggs (with a soft frog and snake respectively) and a Kate & Wills commerorative mug. Smaller Easter eggs were also given to all participants. Original ERN orange/white vests were given out to the 2 best responses to question 22 “What is Iceland sorry for?”; To Gillian (the Volcano) and Susan (Kerry Katona) respectively.

A bit different and good fun all round, hope to see you next year. You can see the results along with some photos below.
