MIDLANDS HEAT

Dramatic start tonight at Warwick University because the fire alarms went off two minutes before the quiz was due to start. It was a false alarm. After 30 minutes we filed back in and got underway. Because the quiz was held in the evening there was a sizeable audience of over 150 supporters encouraging their teams. The authors' team won the quiz and the sponsors' team from Scholastic were second. However tonight's first-time winner was Oundle School 2 and the trophy was presented by author Ann Evans. Leila Rasheed awarded second place to Kenilworth School and author David Calcutt awarded the third place prize to Bluecoat School 1.
The Coventry School Library Service again organised a successful event at Warwick University and this was our first time there and it worked well.
Happy reading Wayne.
