Chesham Natter Quiz Night
In an effort to continue our aim to have closer relationships with neighbouring clubs, we accepted an invitation from the Chesham Club to field a team for their quiz night at the Chartridge Park Golf Club on Tuesday 24th October. As it turned out, we could only offer a team of four to represent the club. As teams were to be of six we were joined by two of their members, John and another Clive.
Team name chosen, “Booker Tee”, we were ready to do battle. There were eight teams of six plus the organising team so a good crowd. The quiz was eight rounds with two marathon rounds with a hundred and thirty points up for grabs. From the outset it was obvious that this was a serious competition and that several of the teams were there to win it, and why not with a case of wine as the first prize.
We, it has to be said made a slow start in the first half but after the break for food, a very tasty chicken curry, and a drink or two we were ready for the second half. With a real team effort on the marathon rounds and with an inspired use of our Joker on the capital cities round we came up slowly on the outside to finish a very respectable third out of eight. It was a very enjoyable evening, we were made to feel very welcome visitors and have extended the invitation to them to join us at our Quiz Night on the 4th December. Lets just hope that they don’t send their winning team!!”

(I particularly like the chosen team name – music fans will no doubt remember the Stax Records house band was called ‘Booker T and the MGs’ – AB)
