Hitchin Military History Quiz


Last Thursday ( 21st October 2010)  Members of the club made the Treck to our good friends at the Hitchin Blackwolf club for the annual Military Quiz night.

 It has always been a fun evening, and a good chance to catch up with friends in other local clubs.

 

Peter Day of Hitchin Blackwolf, and our Quizmaster for the evening, explains how the evening is planned, and shows us the prizes we are quizzing for.

The questions this year were especially challenging, especially the semafore one (cheers Pete!) but this did not detract from the friendly rivalry between the teams.

 At the intermission, we were informed that our purchases at the Bring And Buy over the past five years ( has it been that long!) had raised over £600 for the Royal British Legion,

 in this time of conflict with our lads and lasses doing thier bit for Queen and Country in Afganistan,a good effort from us amature military historians.

 At the end of the competition the Portly Gentlemen team were again victorious, and collect thier prize of a selection of Osprey titles.

We had two teams in for this year, both doing well despite some very difficult rounds. Looking forward to next year,and perhapse if Mark can attend we will do better!
