Probus Quiz, Thursday 24th November 2022

The next Probus event will be the annual Quiz. Date is Thursday 24th November. Venue is Foxy’s Den. Ladies are of course welcome. Cost is £7 per head plus lunch.

Foxy’s Den is about 2½ miles outside Frome at Hapsford, near Great Elm, BA11 3NW. It’s a family run concern, a welcoming atmosphere, ground floor, cosy hall, bar, lots of parking. They lay out the tables and tidy up afterwards. They serve uncomplicated, inexpensive lunches (menu below). Prices include tea / coffee after lunch.

This is a quiz tailored for us (by me) and I’ve tried to make it a bit easier than last year. 10 rounds including 2 picture rounds and 2 audio. To give us time to relax and socialise after the quiz, the timings are – Arrive at 11am. I hope to get the quiz underway by 11:15ish, finishing at about 12:45. Then drinks followed by lunch at 1:15pm, tea / coffee served at 1:45pm. We finish by 3pm. I hope to see lots of people there. This is a fun quiz, I’ve enjoyed compiling it.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you are coming. Add the cost of your lunch + £7 per person and pay into the club’s bank; Name ‘Frome & District Probus Club’.  Sort code 30-93-40.  Account 00499827.
