March 2019

Hello everyone,

Brexit may baffle brains but whatever happens Spring is on the way and so are quizwalks!

We have a fantastic schedule lined up this year. Geoff Hunt and Alan Reeves are kicking off on Sunday 14th April, with their Warlingham Wander (Andi'Cap quizwalk) from The Horseshoe, Warlingham Green, Surrey.

Staunch supporters of our club since 1981 and organisers to date of no less than 41 quizwalks, Robert and Sue Whale are bowing out - for the time being at least - from organising further walks. I would like to thank Robert and Sue on behalf of the club for this splendid record and to say that we still look forward to seeing them from time to time as competitors on upcoming quizwalks.

As ever my thanks to all of you who are organising a quizwalk this year.

And on that subject I'm delighted to welcome Marion Earp and her daughter, Jan Spencer, as first-time organisers. Marion and Jan, as well as other members of their family, have been regular quizwalkers since 2003. I'm sure that like me you're all very much looking forward to their quizwalk on 23rd June.

As many of you will know already my Mother, Kath Biggs, has retired as Club Treasurer after many years of excellent service. In her place we've appointed Joanne Norfolk who will now be looking to fill her moneybag with your annual subs at the first opportunity on the 14th April Andi'Cap quizwalk. Subs remain at £2 per member.

Below is the full events programme for 2019. For specific information about any event please take a look at the Events section on our website, or contact Roger Heath on 01737 352832 or James Biggs on 07889 384047.

I'm pleased to announce that our founder's daughter, Christine Cooper, has joined our Committee in the newly-created post of Social Media Secretary.

Christine has formally taken on the role of promoting our club on social media where, along with Andrew Cordani, she has already established a significant presence for us. Christine would welcome your ideas on how she should use her new role to promote our club further.

Social media apart, word of mouth is still one of the best ways to introduce new people - new faces young and old are always most welcome.

I will look forward to seeing you all in the countryside soon.
