YEuCat Virtual Pubquiz
Thursday, 26 November 2020
The first YEuCat virtual Pubquiz took place on 26 November, 2020. YEuCat members, colleagues and friends came together online to experience a fun quiz evening. In teams of three or four, the participants had to prove their knowledge of pop culture, science and random facts, as well as coming up with some appropriate guestimates. We congratulate the winning teams and say “thank you” to our quizmaster Thomas, who did an excellent job in composing the quizzes. Looking forward to a repetition in the near future!
