Pre and Post Peterborough Quiz - 4/5 May

Postby Chris » Tue Apr 24, 2012 12:37 pm

Peterborough Quiz Grand Prix: Saturday 5 May

AMENDED SUNDAY 29 APRIL : PLEASE RE-READ

We would be very grateful if interested parties would sign-up below to declare their intention re attending one/or both the Friday night excursion to the Greyhounds (aka 'Dogging with Dodding') and/or Saturday evening's meal (and quiz, hopefully) at the Royal Spice restaurant.

Greyhounds - Friday Night. Meet outside the main entrance at the dog track at 6.30. The first race is at 7.30 but we will need to be in prior to 7pm if we want to get seats for the night and there is usually a queue. Also there will be the first of the mini quizzes.
Steve has written sets of five questions (one of which is a nearest the bull for tie break purposes) for each race. If you want to enter it is £1 per race. Whoever gets the most right answers gets first choice of dog in that race, second gets second choice down to sixth getting the remaining dog. Winner of the race takes all the entry money. I have got free tickets and there is a free meal at the Rollin' Tum Cafe included. What more could you want?

Saturday night - The intention is to finish the GP a little earlier than normal to allow people to get to the Brewery Tap for the Cup Final. (Steve is double checking to make sure it is on the telly there). The Brewery Tap is a real ale pub with its own micro brewery so it is well worth a visit, football or not. The Royal Spice Indian restaurant have kindly given us their upstairs room to ourselves again. The intention is to arrive at 8pm. There will be a buffet at £15 per head. This makes billpaying less stressful and they continue bringing food out until we shout "No More!". I have suggested that we will have 3 or 4 vegetarians. I would appreciate it if as many people as possible bring along questions for the night. Any format.

While pre--planning for the dogs is not so difficult an issue, it would greatly assist Jamie in making arrangements for Saturday night if we had a firm idea of numbers for the curry. So, please sign-up below for one or both of these super evenings...
