We had a record turnout today for the West Scotland heat. Four authors challenged the quiz teams they were: Keith Gray, Keith Charteris, Victoria Campbell and Linda Strachan. As powerful as this line-up was they tied with the second placed team from Perth High School. The winning school was Dunblane High School. Ten years ago this school won the inaugural West Scotland heat and went on the win the World Final. Congratulations to Caitlin, Alex, Ellen and Mareth. There was a three-way tie for third between Cumbernauld, Auchterader and the High School of Glasgow. It was won by Cumbernauld.
At the interval a large tenth birthday cake with candles was carried into the hall and participants indulged in a piece of KLQ cake. Thank you all for this surprise.
Our sponsors today were Scotia Books and Strident Publishers.
Many thanks to the organisers and to the Kilsyth Academy for hosting today's heat.
