Porthpean Sailing Club  
70 Years of Racing, 1951-2021

Online Quiz Night
January 2nd 2021

Coronavirus, Covid-19, Those words sum up 2020.

We are now into 2021 and I want to start the year in a more positive frame of mind.

So, as Social Secretary I got my quiz books out and also delved into my grey matter to formulate a general knowledge / festive quiz.

I miss quiz nights at the sailing club but am pleased to see club members getting together via Zoom on my computer screen. I logged on just before 7.30pm and as the minutes ticked by, so more faces appeared before me.

As I was still in the festive mood from Christmas I had adorned my headphones with tinsel for the evening.
As Quizmaster I felt that I had to stand out among the faces before me.

I tried to get most folk involved by asking questions that connected to most of those taking part. So, a good mix to test all.
After 40 questions asked it was time to reveal the answers. As I started to give the answers I made a mistake and was soon corrected by the baying mob on my screen! (Sorry).

Results … 1st Peter & Jenny Popewith 33 points Congratulations.
2nd Dave Mackrell (solo)with 31 points well done.
3rd Pete & Jan Barneswith Jean 28 points

All others taking part put in respectable performances.

Another good evening of Porthpean Sailing Club coming together.

My thanks to Paddy for the I.T. Input.

Tony Quizmaster.
