Spinners Winners!

2503spinners3

For a while, when I’m not away on trips, I’ve been enjoying helping some friends in a very minor way at the Spinners Pub Quiz in Adlington. I’m not much help, but we always seem to have a very jolly evening, usually coming in the middle of the dozen or so teams that take part.

Last night we excelled ourselves, with Glenn’s assistance, by coming second. For which we got nothing (as usual). However, there’s a weekly accumulated fund. Every week a draw is made, and the team with the score that matches the ticket drawn receives the fund. It’s some time since the ticket drawn has matched anyone’s score. Last night Bev’s annoyance that her son had changed one of my correct answers quickly dissolved when the ticket drawn matched our team’s score of 65.

We’d won the £300 fund! Glenn had gone home, but the rest of the team posed with their winnings. As you can see, Stuart and Lyn are each clutching £50, John has nothing, and Bev is hanging on to £150. To be fair, she has probably earned it as her wide knowledge of otherwise useless facts is arguably the hidden strength of our team.

My winnings have gone to the Levana School Partnership charity.

What fun! Spend your winnings wisely, folks, and thanks go to the staff at the Spinners who organise the weekly quiz.

Indeed we were thrilled to at last win something! Just one correction - Greg is actually Glenn, but I am sure this won't upset him too much once he has the money in his hands. Lyn.

Thanks Lyn, Greg is now Glenn - I hope that doesn't mean he'll claim two sets of winnings!
