In a first for Horris Hill, the Colour Classics Quiz got underway on Friday evening and kept both contestants and audience as spellbound as any sailor hearing those siren voices . With questions coming thick and fast even Atalanta herself would have been hard-pressed to keep up.
With answers ranging from the onager to the testudo, from mythical beasts and personalities to Percy Jackson and Lady Gaga, this was a quiz for the connoisseur. Hands were poised, buzzers were pressed and the eventual winners were declared. Go Prasini! Your charioteer forefathers would have been proud!
