Our September meeting was Pointless. No, we haven’t gone all despondent. Due to our planned speaker having to cancel at the eleventh hour, we came up with our own version of the TV game show Pointless. Unfortunately Alexander Armstrong was unavailable so Secretary Louise stepped into his shoes, and we had to make do with the hall’s PC to replace Richard Osman (turned off, just like his laptop on the show).
The quiz was great fun with a wide variety of subjects covered including literature, the Eurovision Song Contest, MPs called Ed, Dave or Nick and the capital cities of Europe. Great thought and discussion was put into the answers (we allowed conferring), although no one got a pointless answer to win the jackpot (just as well as there wasn’t one!). We did have cash prizes though in the form of chocolate coins, and thoughts have turned to possibly entering the real thing.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 13th October and new members are welcome. Your first meeting is free, and more information about what we do and and how to get in touch can be found on our website.
