Bob and Janet's
London Fun Night

Captain's calm and chaos's latest extravaganza was held in the club house on Saturday 11 October. No particular reason for mentioning the date other than to say if you missed it, hard luck.

It was their best yet. The whole thing was based on everybody's knowledge of our capital city (or lack of it in some cases). Cockney slang, questions about things and places, past and present, all came into play.

Supper consisted of a traditional London supper of pie, mash and (mushy peas?) followed by sponge and custard. This proved very popular and vanished as soon as it was served.

The quiz finished with a dinghy race in the clubhouse. Toy boats on a magnetic board were moved by numbers and or answers to questions on, yes, you guessed it, London.

The evening flashed by and Bob's incomparable scoring techniques ensured a nail biter finish.

A great deal of thanks is due to Janet and Bob for a excellent evening. An awful lot of work goes into something like this to ensure that it runs like clockwork and appears effortless. Nothing could however be further from the truth and if you doubt that just try it sometime.

Thanks guys it was great!
