Some of the members at the Party Night

Members gathered on Monday 18th December for the Annual Xmas Party, the last event of 2017. DJ Dave selected some old favourites from the 60's including country music to get the feet tapping to the beat.
A full programme of entertainment followed the excellent Buffet supplied by the members, which everyone enjoyed.
Members were divided into three teams for the popular Twenty Questions brain teasing Quiz. Team C, made up of Christine, Nigel, Robert and Kevin recorded the highest number of correct answers and had first dip into Santa's Sack of prizes.
This was followed by the "Print of the Year" Competition in which everybody had a chance to vote for their favourite print on display. This year's winner was Stuart Warstat with his image of Autumn leaves. Following the Raffle we came to the last event of the evening, the Auction, when the Chairman once again picked up his gavel and tried to sell off everything that had been donated, in aid of Club funds. This is always a lot of fun and raised a healthy sum as well.
In summing up, David thanked everyone for their generosity in providing the buffet, prizes and items for the Auction. Wishing everybody present, a very merry Christmas, he said, it had been a fitting way to say goodby to 2017. Everyone leaving for the holidays in high spirits.
