The winning team, L-R Jill, Me, Joe and GrahamAfter nearly two years travelling together the crews of Nb Caxton and Nb Matilda Rose finally alighted upon a Pub which was holding a quiz that wasn't scheduled for next Thursday week or last Friday; we always seem to miss them, but not this time. The Landlady of the Horseshoe pub, located next to bridge three of the Nth Stratford canal, invited us to join the fun on Thursday evening and so we did, a gallon of beer was the prize but for the competitive amongst us it was winning that was our goal. The locals were friendly, greeting us with, "If you win we'll kill yer." Much to our surprise and delight we did WIN!! Instead of meeting our maker, as threatened, we were applauded by our Brummie opponents.
