Harry's Notes

Table Quiz

The traditional curtain raiser to the new season took place at the Birdseye Club on 10th September and the general consensus at the end of a well-attended evening was that the questions had been very well-constructed and were full of novel interest. Peter Hardisty has built a reputation for asking very acceptable questions and he certainly turned it on last night! He was well supported by his other team mates from Apostles.

The scores were fairly high with Surplus Rowdies coming out as winners, closely followed by Swats in second place and Dad's Army third. All-in-all an excellent way to resume after a mid-season rest before the first fixtures kick-in on Monday, 17th.

Please note that the fixture lists on this site are for use in conjunction with your fixture list booklets. If you ever find a discrepancy, precedence should be given to the booklet.

While I check, double check and triple check everything before I post it, it is still possible that I may have got my fingers and/or eyes crossed, and I don't want to send anyone to the wrong venue at the wrong time or on the wrong day. Finally, if you do spot a clanger, PLEASE let me know so I can fix it. Thanx! Ed.
