    I set the quiz topics on three basic topics.
    (1) The eurovision song contest
    (2) The FA Cup
    (3) Wales and its environs.

    As major events this weekend are The song contest, the FA cup final and most important of all the Funster meet at Carmarthen.

    I was most impressed by the quality and above all speed of the correct answers being presented.

    Thanks to all who took part.

    The results of the top five were as follows:

    5th place with 15 points - Catspyjamas
    joint 3rd place with 17 points each - Maz and JJ
    2nd place with 19 points - Mondo

    In first place and next weeks quizsetters with an runaway 32 points - Welshbois
