Valentine’s Darts

Domino team scored a win this week after last weeks loss. The quiz team lost by ONE point after last weeks win!

Last weeks winners of the Wednesday quiz were the Alzheimers, who this week were beaten into last place by the Old Contemptibles with Anty’s mob winning again.

Due to lack of support, the Thursday coffee mornings have come to a close. If there’s anything anyone would like us to try, please let us know.

We have been toying with the idea of running a weight management support group. No weekly fees or weigh-in, just a get together of like-minded people who can share tips, advice, support and encouragement. If this sounds what you’re looking for, would you prefer daytime or evenings? Please let us know. Don’t be shy!

Feb 16th we’re holding a mixed double Valentines dart match. Pairs must be one male, one female! £2 per person to enter and the winners will win a cash prize. Doesn’t matter if you’re not very good, just come along and give it a go and have fun!

The following evening (Feb 17th) is the monthly quiz. Teams of no more than four, £1 per person to enter and as usual, there are cash prizes.

Looking forward to seeing you at one or more of these events.

Fox and Hounds Update (week 1 & 2, 2013)

Quiz and domino teams had a rest over the festive period but started back again this week. The quiz team were home and won and the domino team were away and lost 🙁

The weekly quiz was not held on Boxing day, but was won by The Alzheimer’s team last week after four tie-break questions! And by Anty’s team this week. Seems they are determined to share he spoils between them, not giving The Old Contemptibles, The Coogies, Matthew and The Apprentice or Annonymous the chance.

So, if you think you’re up for the challenge, Wednesday evenings, 8.30 (prompt) for £1 pp entry (+ £3.50 if you fancy a light supper) , come along and give them a run for their money!

The monthly quiz is on this Sunday (13th) 8 pm start. £1 pp entry and a maximum of FOUR players to a team please.

Thursday coffee mornings are still running.

Pub Quiz results and Christmas Greetings

This week saw the first loss of the season for the domino team but a win again for the quiz team.

The weekly quiz was won by Anty’s Mob with The Old Comtempitble’s dragging themselves off the bottom slot for the first time and coming a very respectable second. (Alzheimer’s and Coogies third and fourth respectively)

Looking forward to the carol’s around the tree tomorrow (Dec 21st) followed by the Christmas draw later in the evening.

We’d like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy, health new year. Thank you all for the support you’ve given us over the last three months.

Christmas Quiz, Carols and Draw

Been an odd week here at the Fox & Hounds (even by our standards!).

The monthly quiz was very well supported yet again and was won by first-timers, The Mikado’s.

The domino team had their match re-arranged to next week but the quiz team were again victorious!

There was no weekly quiz this week as we had a large Christmas party booked but it will return on 19th December with a hint of Christmas about it.

Friday 21st we will be doing our Christmas draw. Tickets are still available for 50p and ALL money goes to the prizes. The Draw will be at approx 9.30pm after Carols around the tree starting at 7.30pm. Everyone is most welcome, children included for the carols.

First Coffee Morning and Quiz update

Domino AND quiz teams scored wins on Tuesday evening.

Alzheimers Corner reclaimed their number one spot at the weekly quiz.

Sunday 9th Dec is our monthly quiz. Maximum of four to a team for that but still £1 pp entry.

We’ve just finished our first coffee morning and it was lovely! We open just before nine on Thursdays for teas/coffees and home made cakes. Happy to see anyone that fancies a warm and a natter.
