Report of Post-Festive Get together Quiz and Supper Evening, 20/01/17

REPORT of a Post-Festive Get Together - Quiz & Supper Evening, Friday 20/01/17

This was an event of the Channel Islands Group, Westerly Owners' Association (WOA) held at the GYC jointly with the Motor and Cruising Sections. In addition, we were joined by 17 members, in three separate teams, of the Guernsey Old Car Club (GOCC) with a keen interest in Boating. In total 60 people were in attendance, divided into 11 teams ranging in numbers from 3 to 6 persons per team..

The light-hearted quiz began at 19.30, immediately after the Meat Draw. It was well conducted by John Frankland the Quizmaster, capably assisted by Julie Payne. There were three rounds of Nautical, Vintage Cars and General Knowledge questions.

Following the quiz, a piping hot and delicious supper of Meat Pie, Chips and Vegetables, prepared by Peter the Chef, was most efficiently served by the waitering staff.

The results of the quiz were announced after the supper:

Winning Team: WESTERLY 5

Runners Up: THE UNSINKABLES

Last Place: THE SPOONERS

All three teams were presented with appropriate prizes.

Mike Tai then gave a brief resume of future events of the WOA CI Group, to be organised jointly with the Motor and Cruising Sections of the club. Mike gave due thanks to John Frankland the Quizmaster for the excellent presentation of and the comprehensive research done to the quiz questions. Mike also thanked Sacha Yabsley, Rear Commodore (Motor) for his loyal and unfailing support given to the WOA CI Group. John Falla, Vice Commodore, a previous proud owner of a Westerly Fulmar designed by the late Ed Dubois, expressed his appreciation of running such a successful event for the good of the club in particular.

In conclusion, this was once again a most enjoyable and popular event for everyone. Indeed the general consensus was that it should be repeated again as an annual event after the Festive period in the future!
