Spaceships_01_FullThere were several rounds with a good selection of questions ranging from.. “What was Mexico’s boarder length with  America?” A 4 answer multi-choice question! For those in the know the correct answer was 1,951 miles! 

Another multi-choice question was “What was the circumference of the moon?” If you are curious then the answer was 10,921 km.

Following with tradition, there were the usual and very challenging picture rounds, one of which was to identify ‘Famous Cats’ and the other ‘Famous spaceships” ……….Buck Rogers @ no 2, The Invaders at no 6 and Flight of the Navigator @ no 10 and cats’ No 15 Cheetara from ‘Thundercats’ were all to prove tricky, but were a deciding factor for the eventual winners Neighbours who’s knowledge of these 2 rounds ultimately gave them victory. They were run close by last years winners Fingal flyers who finished 2nd, so well played to them.
