Winter socials: Countdown and Quiz report

COUNTDOWN  Tues 15th Jan
Eight people contested this year’s Countdown competition, with Chris M and newcomer Emma progressing from the first heat, and Eileen and Ray qualifying from the second heat. Eileen was the overall winner of the final, with Chris a close runner-up.

ANNUAL QUIZ Tues 12th Feb
Four teams of four took part in a very closely-fought quiz run by Richard, with the top two teams both finishing on 73.5 points. Ashby Residents +1 (Lesley L, Joy, Lynda and George) were declared the winners after a tie-break, just pipping the Mealworms (Martin, Ray and friends). Three Degrees + 1 were third with 68, and the Long Eaton No-Hoopers fourth with 66 but they made up for it with an almost clean sweep of the raffle prizes! The reverse bingo was won by Eileen.
