Starting time: 8 PM.

Location: Will alternate weekly, between the Gym Bar (starting on 1-18-11) and Bananas Restaurant.

Raf
when was this decided? and by who? I have played quiz since we got here almost 4 years ago, if quiz has been moved before or the night changed ALL the people who play have been asked what they think then the majority wins, nobody as asked Ken or myself what we think, I can also tell you a lot of others are upset by this also but they must speak up for themself.

is this is for political reasons ie APC fees? if so and i dont mean to be rude but I am just putting the facts as I see them I hope people who feel so strongly about it wont be playing golf here in costambar.

Not having a go at you Raf I guess you are just the person who as posted it, but to do this one week after quiz has started is wrong, had I known about the first one in good time We might have gone to it( we only found out about it on the grapevine) I can only assume that not being told or asked to the first one means we are not welcome
So be it hope it goes well for you all

Sue, while some may wish to consider the selection of locations as 'political', others see the choice of venues as 'economic'. The two restaurants selected contribute to the APC, thereby putting less economic strain on those of us who also contribute. In other words, their dues help to keep mine lower. It only makes sense to support these restaurants with our business. This isn't 'politics', it's 'economics (101)'

Sue, please do not construe ANYTHING from your lack of knowledge re the quiz-night held last Thursday.
There was no intention of excluding you (or anyone else) from attending. The simple explanation is this: the event was not well 'advertised'. To prove this please know that:
1. the appointed quiz master only found out about her duties on Thursday morning (and did a great job, nevertheless).
2. the venue was unaware of the event, and as a result, had no food or snacks on hand.
3. Only eight people (i.e., two tables) were able to attend.

We were asked to hold the quiz at the bar every fortnight & were only too pleased to support this activity.

I'm not getting involved in politics, I shall leave that to others.

Hi Bob
I will address some of your points on another thread in a mim.
Mark I did not accuse you of being involved in the politics, its more about lack of communication and being made to feel unwelcome
