4th December - Annual Christmas Fun Night

The club’s December meeting was thrown over as usual to the Christmas fun night organised by the committee with loads of fun and games to get involved in. Always well attended, members and their guests organised themselves into 3 fairly large teams in a friendly but competitive contest over several rounds of questions, quizzes and skill games.


The teams decided on their own team names at the start of the evening and came up with a variety of names, then it was down to business!


With rounds including a shove halfpenny contest, cola tasting and a Nerf gun sharpshooting competition, everyone got into the spirit of the event. There was a music intros quiz, a magic quiz, logos to identify and various other table activities to get involved in, some much harder than others! The evening ended in a tense battle between teams to see who could build the strongest bridge across a two foot gap between tables, using only paper, straws and sellotape as building materials!


So in the end it was a super evening that everyone seemed to enjoy, and the winners at the close were Don, Alfie and Simon’s team, narrowly beating the other two teams by a margin of just a few points. Prizes in the form of chocolates were handed out to all the teams for taking part in what was a super evening.
