Our first quiz was held on Saturday 14th October in SJT clubhouse. The small but seriously enthusiastic group of players created a great atmosphere and keen competition. Mr Bean is now well off the starting blocks. Next competition is planned for November. Please come and support this fun way to raise money for our most needed areas in the club and also use it as an opportunity for people in different categories of sailing/membership to get to know each other.
These fun nights are the brainchild of our social committee and the flag officers have suggested three specific fund areas that we as a club could target, so that participants know where their money is going
- Mr Bean replacement
- Lower Estuary Launch
- SJT refurbishments
A percentage of the entry money each month per table will go towards prizes on the night and the balance will go towards the funds. We plan on building some fun and some commitment into the fund-raising aspect as follows. During the interval, each table will be asked to nominate which pot they want to designate their fund money. We will have ‘virtual’ buckets up on the screen so that participants can see how the three ‘buckets’ are doing. We believe that this is fair and hope that it will encourage people to canvass around their friends in support of their favourite project. All projects are badly needed in the club and each one will need quiz participants from their own aspect of sailing in order for their fund ‘bucket’ to grow.
