Thursday 17th August – Summer Social Evening Quiz n’ Supper

Held at The Swan Inn Ringland 6.30. for 6.45

Organisers Mary & Keith Walker

Here is your chance to exercise your mind in a Quiz N Supper evening. Having used virtually all the birdy type questions last year, we have set an animal themed quiz which should be light hearted and fun, although we may sneak one round of birding questions! With the animal questions there should be a clue as each answer is linked to the name of a bird even if the question setter is slightly dyslexic. So get your grey cells working and see if you can beat your pals. Feedback from last time was that members would like longer to chat so this time we will slightly reduce the number of rounds and extend the interval

We have booked the restaurant at the The Swan Inn, Ringland for our sole use, and the quiz will go ahead if at least 30 members join in. Please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment as numbers will be limited (c 60). The evening is open to all members and their partners and friends.

The main course will be served between 6.45 and 7.00p.m, and we would suggest that participants arrive at 6.30p.m to buy the necessary drinks from the bar. A form is attached to the newsletter for participating couples/individuals to complete. Please hand it to one of us at our Indoor Meetings in June or July, together with your payment. We will bring spare forms with us so don’t worry if you do not have a printer. The order form should be self explanatory.

Teams should ideally consist of four people, but we will be flexible to ensure that any odd numbers are accommodated. You are welcome to put together your own teams, but if you need help to find that missing like minded birding genii then we will happily assist by putting you in touch with others still looking for a “mate”!

The cost of the quiz and main course is £12.50 per person, and for those with a big appetite a sweet can be bought for a supplement of £6. Desserts will be served during an interval at c 8.15. Closing date for applications is 3rd August 2017 and payment is non refundable after that date.

We have agreed to pre advise the pub of meals required and will prepare a table plan so they know which meals are required at which table. You may like to keep a note of the meals you have ordered.

The event should break even and we would like to raise some funds for the club by holding a quality raffle. A donation of prizes from members would be very welcome and if possible should be handed to the organisers at the July indoor meeting.

If you are unable to get to the indoor meetings before the quiz takes place, then if you would like to take part then please e mail us on
