Teams from the Victory pub at the De Vere Village on Shaw Ridge must be the brainiest quiz crews in the country, having won an inter-pub league for the second time in 12 months.
In July The Milhouse Warriors – named after President Richard Nixon’s middle name and Bart Simpson’s put upon mate – battled through 11 weeks of competition in Swindon before taking on 30 other De Vere Village teams in a national showdown in Manchester in late July.
Tim Westcott, who also captained the victorious team in November, said: “Our success is down to the age spread, some members know about modern music and what’s on TV, whilst others can dredge up knowledge to obscure questions like what was the name of Richard the Lionheart’s horse.”
If you have a team to take on the Warriors, drop into the Victory on a Tuesday evening. The quiz kicks off at 8pm.
