Twinning Quiz    (21/04/2002)
  There were some slight worries at the beginning of the evening, Liz Kwantes, who had the questions, was in a meeting at Heathrow Airport at 6.00pm and everyone was very pleased to see her turn up in time. However, although Liz was there, there was no sign of the Quiz Master, Peter Bysshe. He finally turned up complaining that nobody had told him that the venue had changed!! This held things up for a time as some of the questions required sound and the equipment for this had to be checked.  
  The questions had been set by a variety of people, so they were very varied in their complexity and choice of subjects. Although the Quiz Master's decision was supposed to be final, there were some brave souls who decided to argue the toss and even won the argument.  
  The winning team was made up of the Runnacles, the Turners and the Inds all from Cookham Dean with over eighty points, no wonder they said that they were enjoying it very much.  

Finally there was the raffle with fifteen prizes, three of which had been donated by Roy Gigg's French partners. This included a huge plate of charcuterie, a large plate of cheeses and cuisses de canard, luckily with cooking instructions.

Sue Stacey asked if anyone would like to join in a Petanque Challenge being run by several of the local Twinning Associations in the Thames Valley, which will be taking place at the Hand and Flowers in Marlow on 8 August. Cookham Twinning is planning to put in two teams of three people each. Cookham Twinning are also planning to show a French film again this autumn after the success of the one last year.

Everyone went home tired but happy, looking forward to the next Cookham Twinning Quiz in 2001.
