Spring has nearly arrived although it doesn't feel like it with the recent cold weather! Easter is early this year, paving the way for our quiz-walking season to begin in earnest.
We have an action-packed schedule lined up this year, kicking off with the Andi'Cap quizwalk - Sunday 15th April, The Queen Victoria pub, Shalford, Surrey, GU4 8BY. Organised by last year's league winner - Geoff Hunt, ably assisted by Alan Reeves.
Thank you to everybody who has volunteered to organise a quizwalk this year. I would especially like to mention Elizabeth Gurteen & Brenda Watson, who are returning as walk organisers and teaming up with June Daniels & Barbara Cuthbert, who are organising their first quizwalk. It will be held on the 8th July.
We'll be updating the website before the start of the season to give it a more contemporary feel with new photos and features, one of which is an expanded Noticeboard in the Club section.
On the 1st July we'll be sending out a feedback questionnaire on the website. By that time the new site will have been running for 16 months, incorporating a number of the valuable proposals you put forward in the last exercise. Now we'd like to hear what you think of the new site itself and how we might improve it further.
Following the success of the photo competition in our 60th anniversary season last year we've decided to run it again in 2018 with another £20 prize up for grabs. And we'll be encouraging you to share your photos with other members as you go along by posting them on Facebook and/or Flickr, using the links on our homepage.
Annual subscriptions are to remain at £2 for adult members. Please give them to Kath Biggs (Club Treasurer) on the first walk that you attend.

New faces are always welcome and "word of mouth" is by far the best way to introduce new people.
I will look forward to seeing you in the countryside soon.
