Quiz Night Spectacular!

Last night saw the inaugural social event between us and the Weybridge Ladies rowing club. Instigated as a fund raising event for the WL to renovate the inside of their aging clubhouse.

The evening started off well with a very pleasant chili con carne supplied by the ladies to all of the 60+ quiz contenders. The participants divided into teams of 6 comprising of people from their own sport. The scene was set for a rowing vs canoeing showdown with the ultimate prize of the winner taking right of way on the river!

The event was lively and entertaining with Ivan taking the role of quizmaster. Eight rounds of questions later he was losing his voice and the quiz was drawing to a close. All that needed to be done now was a to add up the scores and find out where the true intellect lies. The scores showed a true talent on our part for answering obscure questions, of the 9 teams present the top 5 places were all taken by Elmbridge CC with Weybridge Ladies filling the bottom 4 slots. Who would have guessed we had so much talent hidden away in the parents of our members.

Having seen this event run so smoothly, it can only be a matter of time before another social event is headed toward the calendar. Any suggestions as to what that might be would be very welcome, and even more welcome would be a volunteer to push the whole social scene forward, there is clearly a demand for it and it was great to see so many parents signing up to this inaugural event!
