BLENCATHRA FOXHOUNDS QUIZ

 

Thank you to everyone who took part in the quiz. 105 quiz sheets were sold and £190 was raised for hunt funds.

 

Some of the questions threw up interesting answers – in particular BISTO.

One answer was BLACKPOOL INDEPENDENT SEASIDE TOUR OPERATORS

another BOURNVILLE IN SHROPSHIRE TENANTS ORGANISATION

and, most intriguingly, FRENCH CAFÉ.

 

Three people got all the answers correct: -

Rob Farnsworth from Driffield (ably assisted by his wife, Anne & his mother, Betty).

John Hume from Threlkeld.

Pete Davies from Snowhill.

 

The winner was drawn by lot at the meet at The Kennels on 12th March 2011.

The winner is Pete Davies.

 

Thank you all very much for your support.
