If you're coming by car, here's an image showing where to park on the day...

Enter from Herald Avenue. Parking is free of charge if you chose the right spot.

If coming from the West, i.e. on the A45 (Fletchamstead Highway) you will get to the club by turning into Vanguard Ave (B4101) and following signs for 'City Centre'. Follow the road as it passses around the side of the Citroen dealership and bears left into Herald Avenue [you cannot access Herald Avenue direct from the A45 due to a one-way section of the gyratory system]. Carry on along Herald Avenue, across the first roundabout (bottom left corner in the image above), and then turn LEFT into the private roads and parking just before coming to the next roundabout. If you look for signs on your left for the Triumph Sandard Club and Ofqual, you should get warning just before the turning you need. Look for the parking area as per the map above. The entrance to the club is near the top right arm of the big X I've drawn in purple. Go through the front door and go dead ahead. We are in the Vanguard Room.

BQC Pairs Competition held at Triumph Standard Club, Coventry

Postby Chris » Mon Sep 04, 2017 9:35 pm

The first image shows the overall scores returned by the 52 Pairs (a record field) over the course of the whole quiz. Pairs whose names are in [img]italics[/img], with Preliminary Round scores emboldened, are the 32 pairs that made the cut, going into the Round of 32. Scores of zero in red are where the paid played but did not hand in their score. Scores of zero in red that are also in italics are pairs who bowed-out of the contest early.

It will be seen that throughout the quiz Anne Hegerty & Paul Sinha were leading with most correct answers, but they were eventually overhauled by eventual knock-out winners Kevin Ashman & Pat Gibson. Also of note are the pair of Barry Simmons & Diane Hallagan who rose highest up the field after "missing the cut". They went from 33rd (just missing the cut) to 27th place.

We say well done to Kevin & Pat who are the new champions. Last year's winners Brian Chesney & Jeff Evans went out at the Quarter Final stage but finished very strongly overall, sharing 5th place with a total of 89.5.

Finally, we say thank you to David Hulley for the images below - the Pairs winners and Individual Champion Kevin Ashman with the "M*by".
