I am sure most of you know that Thursday night is Witley MCC Club night. There is a good group of regulars and others that pop in from time to time.
Quiz Night
On one of these Thursday nights around Christmas Jo Ayshford and I were sat having a little drink (well OK, a few large drinks!) when we decided we fancied a ploughman’s supper. Before we knew it one thing lead to another and we thought why not run a social event and base it around a ploughman’s. A quiz seemed like a good idea and we thought that if there was any profit it could be shared between Witley MCC’s charity CHASE and the Poppy Appeal. We got the go ahead from the Committee and started to sell tickets. As sales passed 35 we thought that was good and hoped we would at least break even, at 65 we thought we had better print some more tickets! As we passed the sale of 100 tickets we started to worry that we may not have enough seats and that we would need to hire some more tables and chairs.

Quiz NightOn the morning of the quiz Barry and Jo set up the tables and chairs ready for the evening. After lunch Jo and I set off to buy the supplies for the ploughman’s. Once we had filled the car with supplies (french sticks for 120+ completely fills the boot of an Audi TT and needed a separate trip) we headed back to drop the food off at the club.

Following a quick wash and change we were ready to start the mammoth job of cutting the Cheddar, Stilton, Brie and pate, and getting all the food wrapped and laid out ready. With less than an hour to go we were still getting calls for tickets!

By the time the quiz started we had up to 130 people. Rhona Wilkie was our wonderful quiz master and had the quiz running like clockwork. Halfway through we stopped for the ploughman’s and held a raffle.

After costs there was £600 left to be shared between CHASE and the Poppy Appeal. A big thank you to those that helped, provided raffle prizes and bought tickets.
