Sidmouth Esplanade

Social Activities 2019 - 2020

4th September
First Club Night

 It was a quiet start to the season with about twelve players turning up. Refreshingly, there was little discussion about Brexit.

Skittles Night

Difficulties arranging this meant it didn't run.

18th December
Christmas Fun Tournament

It took place and, rumour has it, it was enjoyed by the participants.

14th March
Quiz Night

I blame the demon drink. Who was it in 1856, perhaps propping up the bar at the Royal Geographical Society, said to John Speke 'Here's a whizzo scheme, go to Africa and spend years finding source of the Nile'. This eventually lead to the quiz question: 'The Nile starts in which country?'

And what sort of night was it at the King's Head in Roehampton when a bunch of students from the college up the road discussed (to put it bluntly) farting? Anyway, how do you count the number of times the average termite unleashes a ripe one?

Mo at quiz 2020Such was the range of questions fired by quiz inquisitor Mo as the 31 members and guests divided themselves into 7 teams for the Quiz. It was held in the spacious and comfortable surroundings of the Sidmouth Golf Club, where an impressive and substantial ploughmans supper was served at half-time. This was followed by the raffle, called by Chairman Rod.

At the end of the evening, the quiz results were close. The Organisers came third with 91, second were the Spectaculars with 95½, and The Froebels topped out with 97. The name Froebels comes from the college the team members had attended. (They correctly put down 'Termites' as one of their answers. See what I did there in the second paragraph?)

Chairman Rod rounded off the evening by thanking Mo, Grace and Linda for organising the event. An excellent evening was had by all.
