This evening was part of the annual social programme put together way back in January.
I’ve done two or three before over the years but they were themed to go along with
the food (i.e. Indian and Chinese). This one was, thankfully, just general knowledge
About 38 members turned up on the night and Richard Cannon immediately set to work
taking orders for the fish and chips supper. The quiz itself started about 20:00
and was contested between four teams. Richard and Diana Carpenter arrived with supper
just after 21:00 and things went very quiet while everybody tucked in.
By the end of the evening some one hundred questions had been posed and answered,
or not. The results were very close with the ‘River’ team finally winning by a few
points. They were presented with the Aquarius Quiz Trophy and a carton of chocolates.
Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves and my grateful thanks go to Frank Rainsborough's
grandchildren Millie & Noah for their assistance in scoring the quiz, Pete behind
the bar, Richard and Diana for looking after the food and to Gordon Courtney who
did a lot of the clearing up afterwards.
Judging by their popularity there’s bound to be more quizzes, so if you feel like
putting one together, get in touch and we’ll see if we can fit it into next years
