6th November Quiz Night against Tees Valley Car Club

The evening went really well considering, on arrival, Tony, Kate, Dave and myself found Romanby Golf Club in darkness except for the emergency lighting, minutes before the electricity had gone off, Edd had rang the help line and he had been assured that the power would probably be working by 7.45pm, it was really too late to cancel so we crossed our fingers and held our breath, cheers exploded when the lights came back on at 7.30pm.

There was a really good attendance, twenty from Tees Valley, twenty eight from our club plus Martin Vinson the quiz master and his assistant Jackie. The tables were set out so there could be no more than six in a team, papers were given out and the quiz commenced in the capable hands of Martin, there were two sheets of printed questions, one photos of animals, reptiles and insects and a page full of anagrams relating to towns in North Yorkshire, once these were completed, Martin read out a multitude of general knowledge questions covering a variety of subjects. We had a rest at half time and enjoyed the excellent buffet.

Papers were handed in and while Jackie and Martin marked them, Kate and Dave drew the raffle, which raised 92 for club funds.

Martin revealed the winning team consisting of Sue and Martin Bartle, Michael and Clare Bland and Jim Hadfield, it was lovely to see our honorary member attending the quiz and able to enjoy himself. Congratulations to a Y.D.C.C.C. team for managing to retain the cup for another year.

Thank you to Martin and Jackie for producing such a wide range of questions and making it a fun evening.
