Steve Crew - Steve was not a Five Towns' Quiz League player at any time, but he was co-founder
of the quiz solutions company Wise Old Owls, whom the Five Towns Quiz League retained for three years in the mid-1990s to
set our questions.
Steve Crew really was one of the nicest men you could ever wish to meet, and he was
also no mean quiz player himself, being leading light in the Redoubt Inn team of Wakefield. Steve's big principle
was the issue of fair play in quizzes and he founded Wise Old Owls in 1992 or so along with John Rowbottom to tailor questions
for the Tetley Quiz League, but when that league sadly folded in 1996, he and John carried the league on, on an independent
basis until Steve's death from cancer in 1999 when Chris Jones inherited the company name. Steve Crew is probably
the best quiz setter I have ever met and he is fondly remembered by many in the Five Towns Quiz League.
Crew - died 1999.
