We've now had a number of well attended online quizzes. The latest was on July 2nd and congratulations to Chris Lovelady for winning, but well done to everyone who took part. If you didn't manage to take part this time, please get in touch and you can join the next one.

Our next online quiz will be on Thursday July 16th at 1pm.

Our third Quiz Club meeting, on Thursday 9th April, was online due to the Covid-19 lockdown, using Zoom. We had a fantastic turnout of 18 participants, so thanks to everyone who made the effort! The quiz was, once again, six rounds of 10 questions. This time they were entitled General Knowledge, Oscar Wilde, History, Galaxies Stars & Planets, Collectives and Teatime Sport. Don't be fooled by the titles though, they were not all they seem! Well done to Steve Fletcher for winning, though only by one question from the Lawson/Hodgkiss combo!

Hopefully all enjoyed it and we will be holding another online quiz on 23rd April (see Dates for your Diary below). Joining details will be sent out a bit nearer the time.

Our second Quiz Club meeting was on Thursday March 12th and many thanks to Eileen for devising and presenting this quiz. It consisted primarily of six rounds of ten questions, entitled Who Said That, General Knowledge, True or False, Music, First as Last and Colours. These were augmented by some TV programme anagrams and a picture quiz. It was quite challenging but hopefully enjoyed by the 23 members who took part.

--------

We've now got 6 volunteers to present some future quizzes but could still do with more, specifically to cover the months of September & October. So if you fancy presenting a quiz please let me know.

Everyone welcome!

Doreen has kindly sent me some Ditloids 1 for you to have a go at via the link on the right. Have fun!

Steve has also put together an Emoji Quiz which is the first of it's kind I've seen.

Two more quizzes, this time originating from Mel Barnes via Steve:

And a Cryptic Quiz which might keep you occupied for a while.
