The quiz was set by Rotarian Peter Myles and he also acted as quizmaster in his own inimitable style. Fellow Rotarian Isobel Smith deftly acted as scorekeeper and inter-round summariser.

In a very close competition, St Cyrus triumphed with Laurencekirk close runners-up.

The Cargill Trophy, in memory of the late Douglas Cargill, Fettercairn, was presented to the winners by his son, Jim Cargill.

St Cyrus now go on to represent Laurencekirk Rotary at the area finals in Carnoustie, on April 25.
