There have been a couple of changes to the TAODS committee recently as Nicky Whitby and Paul Robinson have had to resign as secretary and chairman respectively. They have both contributed a great deal to the Society over a number of years and we are very sorry to see them go. Hopefully it won’t be long before they are able to work with us once again.
Fortunately Phil Spicer and David George are unable to see a breach without stepping into it, and have agreed to take on the role of chairman (Phil) and secretary (David) to see us through to the AGM.
These changes do leave the committee somewhat smaller, so if any members are feeling called to serve as the winter evenings draw in, please get in touch.
The teams prepare for the general knowledge battle
Many thanks to everyone who supported our quiz night at the Dartmouth Inn. The evening was a great success, with 12 teams competing to see who would be taking a bow when it came to having the widest general knowledge. The winners were We Are Family with a remarkable 96 points out of 100, closely followed by The Panto Dames (94 points) and Both Sides Of The River (90 points).
Particular thanks are due to our quiz mistress, Judy Westacott, Rob and the staff at the Dartmouth for their hospitality and Mike Shail for his organisational efforts. Although the takings are still being counted we know the quiz made a significant contribution towards the costs of staging the next panto, but we’re not there yet - so keep an eye out for the fundraising activities we’re planning to hold later in the year.
… to our newly re-modelled website, please have a look around. You can find out all about our society and our regular productions and there are even some pictures to show what a glamorous crew we are. We hope to see you soon.
