2022 Beach Party - 'What a scorcher'

Actually, the temperature down at the beach was rather balmy.

Forty members arrived on foot or were transported in the brand new electric minibus to the beach, with picnics to hand.

Captain Paul and his shipmate, Lindsay, entertained us with amusing sea shanties as we sat shore side next to the blue waters of the Solent.

The Beach Cafe was open to cater for our guests and we thank Debbie and Hilary of EH for their service.

At the end of the evening our driver, Fiona, was on hand to ferry our guests back to the car park.

2022 Quiz Night Review

With great delight Friends of Osborne held our relaunched Quiz Night on Friday 24th June in the splendid Terrace Restaurant. Teams amounted to 6 tables of four players and 2 of five. Quiz mistress, Ms McDoom and her trustee sidekick, Wisden the scorer, kicked off the evening with Round 1, Hobbies and Leisure. Round 2 covered questions on TV Gold for memories of old.

The supper was served during the interval and it was a most generous Isle of Wight cheese ploughman’s with alternatives for dietary reasons. Delicious.

The Living World Round was pitched rather too high. McDoom blamed Wisden, a former Biology graduate as in their practice rounds he scored 10 out of 10, so McDoom altered her original questions. Round 4, Food and Drink restored harmony for the final totting up of the scores.

A raffle was held with a quality hamper, among the prizes, up for grabs. Photos below are of the winners of the Quiz (bottle of wine), the table questions (bottle of Prosecco), and the team scoring the combined total (the cup), which amounted to a Hattrick. Winning aside, everyone participated with good humour and spirit.
