Bring-a-plate Lunch and Quiz – February 20th 2015

Your starter for 10!

Which weapon appears on Mozambique’s flag?
Which two British women made the Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women list in 2013?
Which 4 UK cities have underground transport systems?

These were just some of the questions testing our grey matter at the bring-a-plate and quiz event held at Les Unelles in Coutances on 20th February (answers below).  21 members attended and each brought a plate of food to share for lunch. And what a delicious spread it was. Tuna tart, onion bhajis, mini quiches, salads, cheese, tiramisu, lemon drizzle cake and coconut cake were just some of the dishes we tucked into.

Once lunch had been consumed and tea/coffee had been served, the afternoon’s entertainment began. Quiz master Kerry and adjudicator Janet quizzed us on a variety of subjects in what turned out to be a very close call. Three teams tied in second place but were pipped to the post by one point by the winning team of Anne, David and Stevie. The consolation prize went to Michael, Shirley, Stan and Sheila.

A very enjoyable and entertaining event. Special thanks to Kerry and Janet for compiling the quiz.
