The last meeting of the Spring session for Coleraine Probus was the ever popular Quiz and club lunch.

In a closely contested battle of wits and memory The Famous Five just trumped Trumpton to take the honours. Quiz master Des Johnston set a tricky challenge for the competing teams, with questions ranging from confidence building easy to downright difficult.

Prizes were extended this year, apart from the highest scoring team; there were prizes for the best-named team - Endeavour who tried really hard to catch the winners. There was a prize for ‘the most imaginative answer to a question, not necessarily correct’ - Q: What is an antitussive? A: Wife of Uncle Tussive! Winner: Trumpton.

There were also prizes for the poor soul in each team who were ‘elected’; to write the answers for each round, the Unsung heroes prize. After the quiz the teams enjoyed lunch in the Portstewart Golf Club before starting their extended Summer meeting break and returning to Probus for the Autumn session starting on Tuesday, September 5.

Club members were reminded to check the club website www.coleraineprobus.org.uk for details of future speakers and items of news about the All Ireland Probus Rally to be held in Armagh this year.
