Quiz night in Swindon. Wednesday 12th February 2014
« on: February 10, 2014, 09:23:52 PM »
Short notice this I'm afraid for reasons not entirely beyond my control.

There will be a quiz night is from 8 pm next Wednesday , at the Fox &Hounds , High St , Haydon Wick , Swindon , SN251HX

The general format is as per normal for a pub quiz , but there will be 10 Vulcan , and 10 general aviation questions.

The quiz is being organized to raise funds for 558.  All proceeds will be DOUBLED  by Barclays Bank!!!

Sadly there is only space for the  regular 5/6 teams of locals , plus possibly enough space for 6 teams of 4 of Vulcan enthusiasts.

It may be easiest if any bomber boys email me on scareycolin54@live.co.uk ( note the "e" in scarey ---Colins wife can't spell !)  Colin will try to co-ordinate the arrangements so that we don't get inundated with coach loads of enthusiasts trying to screw Barclays Bank out of lots of dosh.

If there is enough interest , other quiz nights can be organized !

By the way, the doubling of funds raised for charity work is standard practice for Barclays Bank . ---I can try to get details of how it works for you if you are not already aware of how it works.   


I know it's short notice, I've known about the quiz for a while but have failed to generate the publicity I promised.  It would be nice if anyone local could find their way over to see Colin on Wednesday night.  I can recommend the pub and Colin is always good for a laugh.
I'll never give up on the dream!

Just a quick update.

The quiz night raised just under £230 with the donation from Barclays.

Not a huge amount but as a well known supermikado likes to say every little counts.

Well done and thank you to Colin for organising the evening.
