RYEDALE AQUARIST SOCIETY CHRISTMAS PARTY 2009


 

REPORT AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY DAVID MARSHALL

On Wednesday 25th November our annual Christmas party was held in the Mill Suite at Pickering Memorial Hall.

A total of 23 members and friends would be in attendance and we certainly had a wonderful night.

The evening began with a special Christmas quiz that was compiled by Miss Sue Marshall. The questions were centred round finding numbers and were a mixture of questions on pantomimes, carols, popular music, sport and, of course, fish. Well done to Les and Pauline Barker for getting the greatest number of correct answers.

Next came the 'pot luck supper' for which the people present brought along a rich variety of sweet and savoury items that filled the table. Thank you as we certainly had a supper to remember and the smoked salmon that Richard Hebden brought along was quickly 'snapped up'.

Next came the undoubted highlight of the evening when Mr. Frank Tolomeo produced a pack of giant cards for the Ryedale version of 'play your cards right'. Once the audience got 'into the groove' it was fun and laughter all of the way. Steve Grant and Mick Price certainly made the most of a 'reprieve' to take first place with Ann and Owen Mook running them a close second.

Finally, it was time just to relax and talk to 'old friends' before the evening closed with the drawing of the raffle.

Thank you to everyone who brought along prizes for the raffle, food for the supper and, most importantly, for the friendship that was shown on a wonderful evening.
