Social Activities - 2014/2015
Wednesday 10th September
First club night
Those really keen and organised members who brought along their subs were disappointed to find that the Treasurer wasn't there to collect same - she was on holiday, apparently. The good news is that she will be happy to lighten your loaded wallet or purse next week and subsequent weeks. But if you now miss the 15th October deadline for the five quid discount, well, life can be harsh, sometimes.

Pub games Night
It's impressive how seriously people take these games - just like the Eurovision Song Contest. To the team who scored 'nil points', I feel your pain.
Last year, Graham's team came last, but he must have been practicing, because the Graham/Debbie/Simon (below) combination romped in to win with 15 points.
Over twenty members and guests supported the evening, justifying the hard work of Graham, Linda and others put in to make it a success.
Wednesday 17th December
Christmas Fun Tournament
There was a grand turnout of about thirty people for the tournament. Difficult to know exactly because badminton players move about a lot so its tricky to count 'em.
People energetically played against other people as Grace (above) demonstrates, showing her Fencing heritage as she lunges forward.
It culiminated in a final, where James and Sarah (above) narrowly lost to Steve and Ruth (below) by 18 points to 21.
Steve, in a seasonally sartorial shirt, seems to be enjoying a rummage round Linda's goodies. The traditional Secret Santa presents are distributed as the evening draws to a close. Chairman Graham supervises.
Saturday 7th February
Over twenty keen minds braved the Artic blasts whistling down the Sidford Road to get to the Volunteer Inn for the Quiz Night. Linda had lined up a lad called Dave to act as Quizmaster, and the questions came fast and furious.
An interesting round was based on TV's Only Connect Wall. You have sixteen words to arrange in four groups of four. The key to success here was to put Trafalgar with the other three shipping forcast areas, and add Barnet to the three 'battles' words.
