Car Recognition Quiz 2019 – The Results

Car Recognition Quiz 2019 – for the Paul Monro Trophy

The Plume of Feathers Mitchell orangery was once again fully packed with teams competing for the Paul Monro Trophy awarded for the best team last week.
The evening very successfully (as normal) was organised by Nigel and Rose Stephens in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support.
Truro Motor Club had three teams entered, ‘All the Gears no Idea’ team made up by Bob Eddy, Phil Sheridan and Paul Deacon, the ‘Watergate’ team made up of Dave Brenton, Roger Hargreaves and Shelly Deacon who was standing in for Chairman John Collins who due to illness could not attend. This did lead to some rivalry between the Deacon family. The third team was Mike Tregoning, Roger Langford and Tony Wood making up the ‘TDMC old Rally Boys’ team.
Triumph Stag Owners Club, Merlin Farms, Cape to Capers, St Austell TR’s and Chris Cocks were regular entries amongst the twenty teams competing.
The quiz had three picture rounds, Pre 1970s, 1970 to 2000 and 2000 to 2019. There was then a break and this was followed with a round entitled ‘The Euros’, this was made up from a power point presentation with more cars and even some marques badges. As normal Nigel and Rose had some very interesting pictures, some reasonably easy and some very hard.

The evening raised a total £705, which was made up from the entry fees, the raffle and included £77 collected from change popped into the pot as people left the venue.
The quiz was won by the St Austell TR’s with 211 points after many years of being second and third, well done to them. Triumph Stag Owners Club and TDMC Old Rally Boys were joint 2nd with 205 points each.
Thank you to all that entered and see you next year.
