It has been brought to our attention that Robin McIntosh, well known to many Orrell players, died shortly before Christmas.

Robin's funeral will be held on Friday January 3rd. The service is at 2pm at Charnock Richard  crematorium, followed by a celebration of Robin's life at 3.00pm at Christ Church Newburgh, then refreshments at the Red LIon.  Family flowers only, but donations welcome to Douglas Valley Lions, a cause for whom Robin worked tirelessly.

Change of Venue

Due to the present economic climate, St Teresa's club is shutting on Tuesday nights, so the team are moving to the Britannia at Hall Green, Upholland. The first game at the Britannia will be against Park Lane on Tuesday 28th May. 

Appeal for spare quizzes

We urgently need spare quizzes in case of cancellations. If you have one to hand could you submit the quiz asap to Arthur Penny at 4 Cross Lane, Billinge, WN5 7DB.  Please remember it is in league rules if you ask for a cancellation you must set a quiz to replace the one used, otherwise we can ask the question setters to do one for us and you will be charged their fee - at present this is £25.

QLL Buzzer Tournament

The Quiz League of London will be running a buzzer quiz tournament on Saturday 21 September.  Registration opens on their website on 13 May.

Judging by last year, the available places are likely to be taken up quickly.
