COMMENT: The intrepid travellers are feeling pleased with themselves these days, as they have a had a run of many weeks with events of a really high standard. The Hussar is well up there with the best challenges and enjoyable evenings. Colin has put together a very interesting and varied night which includes most things that make a good quiz. He includes lots of help with connections and clues. In the music round, which was the best presentation I can remember; it was Welsh based, as it was St David's Day, and such was Colin's input that I could almost accept music rounds as an integral part of quizzes. Unfortunately, most presentations are almost inaudible. This was an evening where the team are as keen as I am to return to the venue.
