Can the closing date be extended to 11/01/22 due to the postponement of the home games over Xmas? As I was, as I'm sure other members were, going to hand this in at the Shrimpers Bar before the next home game. Thanks

I don't see any problem with this at all, we usually give it a few days anyway to allow for post.

Over 150 of the 2021 Christmas Quizzes were sold.

58 entries were received by the revised closing date of which 8 were 100% correct. So well done Alistair Ambrose, Julian Ambrose, Andrew Ashenhurst, Bill Cooper, Paula Cooper, Bernardine Harker, Dave Longbottom and Tony Moul.

The draw for the 5 prizes was undertaken prior to the home game on 21st January by Matt Dennis.

Full details of the draw for the winners along with the answers to the quiz can be found on the Trust Website here.

Many thanks to everyone on the trust for running this again - it has now become the highlight of our Christmas!

For info, everyone I know who does this would be more than happy to pay a £5 entry fee based on the enjoyment it provides - it is after all money towards the club we all love.

Thanks for posting that up Kay, we got two wrong I see and I can now see why - oddly the one we were worried about we got right.

Again, a really excellent quiz, congrats to Kev and yourself for doing it, great fun to do and I would happily pay more next year as someone else has said. You might even then have better luck than me getting your pal Stan to hold a copy to help with promotions, still I'm sure Benji, Frank and Crowny helped.

A big thanks too to Mike as always for sponsoring

I'll leave it to you to break the news to Paul Y re how putting up your quiz answers have broken the website ..... :Smile:

It was tough how many did I get please @OldBlueLady
Ah, I don't know, I don't have them here now. From memory, I think you definitely got one wrong - the one people had most trouble with was "Two in a million". Several people put "Whip it" for "Beat it" - I did not allow that as that did not fit the clue. A few people put "The Graduate" for "Mrs Robinson", again, we didn't allow that as the Graduate was obviously Dustin Hoffman.

Most of those who took part fell into the 98/99 category, which proves to me that we'd set it about right.
