Presentation Lunch

On a sunny and warm Sunday, 21st October, Merrow’s Presentation Lunch took place at the Guildford Masonic Centre. Sitting on the terrace, you would have been forgiven for thinking that we were in the middle of Summer, not well into Autumn.

There was a good turnout of club members and partners, with proceedings ably managed by David Matthews.

To keep everyone amused, Tony Cekys had created a quiz for the event. Each couple had two sheets of twenty questions, and we all set to work trying to work out the answers. I must say that Tony is a tough quizmaster! The quiz passed a few minutes before we went up for our lunch, which all enjoyed; very tasty. Our thanks go to Vince and the catering team for their cheerful service.

Once we had finished lunch, we moved on to the presentations. The awards are mainly for the club competitions, with a couple of other items that aren’t competitions. The photos below show the winners and runners-up receiving the awards, all presented by our Chairman, David Matthews.

Presentations over, we moved swiftly on to the raffle. All prizes were donated to the lunch by club members, so a big thank-you to all that helped make the raffle a success. Sue Reigate and Lorna Raison had been busy selling tickets to the assembled throng, who studied their numbers closely for that winning ticket. We also had the quiz answers, with prizes for the highest scores. Team Wills and Mead came out on top in the first round, winning some chocolates. The second round was decided on a tie break, with Team Duddy getting the spoils. Great fun.
