Festive Fun Brunch & Quiz - 29th December 2013

About 18 members and friends, along with 10 classic cars, gathered at our new regular meeting venue, Dailycious, NIM City Daily, for our third annual Christmas Quiz, organised by member and Quizmaster Rex B.

A special brunch was laid on for us, of scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, before the quiz began. Questions this year were on "Auto Trivia", with the special subject of James Bond!

The quiz was won by member Rob K, who was runner-up in the 2012 quiz, and who had obviously spent all year brushing up his knowledge of all things classic car orientated, gaining him 11 points out of a possible 30. Rob was the happy winner of a bottle of wine to help him celebrate the New Year! Runner-up was member Neil R, also awarded with a bottle of wine, with 9 points in a tie-break, showing the difficulty of the questions set by our Quizmaster, and the general lack of memory cells of our members!

After the quiz, a collection was taken to raise money for one of our member's charities, Saantisook Dog and Cat Home.

Thanks go to Rex, who has already started reasearching even more dificult questions for our 2014 Quiz, for organising this ever-popular event. Also to our hosts, Dailycious, who generously presented all participants in the quiz with a bag of fresh home-made bread to take away, and a 10% discount card to use at both of thier branches during 2014.
