EEB Hogswatch Meet 27th November 2010

Postby Squigglyx » Wed Nov 03, 2010 10:55 pm

During the October meet it was suggested we hold the next meeting at the same time as Hogswatch is being celebrated in Wincanton.....

So, unless I get a mass of objections, the next meeting of the EEB branch will be held via MSN at 21:00 GMT on the 27th November 2010. There will be the usual quiz and country raffle and for those who joined in the Hogswatch present exchange, the "Ceremonial Opening of Hogswatch Presents".

Let me know if you are planning to attend..

I wanna be there list.

Thank you all for a brilliant meeting.

We had a new attendee, (thanks for coming Yoo, hope you enjoyed yourself), Hogswatch present opening, a quiz, and raffled Cyprus.

Jane did a sterling job, coming up with a last minute quiz, which unfortunately I won :). (full results and questions/answers to follow)

Jane also won the country raffle and is now to be know as Queen Jane of Cyprus.

Next month's meet will include an EEB LBE quiz and raffle as well as the country raffle and usual stimulating conversation. It will aslo be my last as chairperson, so I will be looking for 'volunteer's' to take over the role for the next 12 months. If you are interested, please post here and we will run a poll prior to the next meet.

Thank you all for attending and Happy Hogswatch.
