Saturday 26th saw one of the groups first evening social events of the year with over 70 U3A members and guests attending the Hi-Lite bar in Via Park 1 for an enjoyable quiz evening. The quiz was run by the inimitable local personality Ricky Neil who kept everybody entertained and on their toes and smiling all night.
A very good meal and buffet, including wine, was served up at half-time by the pleasant staff and good prizes were awarded to the winners and runners-up of the event. An exceptionally pleasant evening which will be repeated later in the year. So keep your eyes on the website
Sunday saw the popular Petanca section playing at virtually full capacity at Domino Bar despite a freezing cold wind that, on occasions, moved the coche (jack) around on the piste!! Just an added complication to upset the scoring!! But again, an enjoyable day for all attendees.
