Bringing People Together

Quiz Team

The Ash U3A Quiz Group operates in a different way to most groups in that we do not meet regularly; instead the members form a pool of quizzers who represent the U3A at local events.

Throughout the year, I look out for quiz nights then contact members in rotation when one is due and make up a team from those who are available. This means the people making up the team, and thus their specialist knowledge, is different every time.

At the moment we attend several quizzes a year in local venues which raise money for local organisations and we take part in the annual U3A Challenge cup in Hartley Wintney. All quizzes charge an entry fee which is payable by the individual not the U3A and winnings (often just Smarties!) are kept by the individual.

So if you are a keen quizzer and would like to be added to a pool of people who can be called upon to represent us, please get in touch with Penny Thomsett.

Venue – We have no regular venue
