The first ever Exmouth Gig Club pub quiz kicked off in style at The Beach Pub on 14th August. Fresh out of the boat from their Thursday evening rowing sessions, spirits were high as the Gig Club crews formed their quiz teams over a well deserved pint.
Locals, friends and family joined the assembled crowd and packed out the pub. Hank Pavey and Christina Board kindly hosted the event and launched into the 5 rounds to test the grey matter, with a welcome break for a raffle and a pint top up halfway through.
Thank-you to all the Gig Club members and supporters who kindly donated some great prizes for the raffle, which proved very popular and raised in excess of £100 for the Gig Club! The winning team ‘Sibling Rivalry’ came out on top and generously donated their prize money back to the Gig Club, with the 2nd place team following suit and helping to boost our fundraising effort! We look forward to holding a similar event again in the future, after those who attended commented on the fun atmosphere.
Exmouth Gig Club raised £228 in total from the quiz and raffle! The money raised will contribute towards updating and maintaining essential club equipment, in turn bringing Gig Rowing to more people in Exmouth and the surrounding area! Keep your eye on the ‘Events’ page for future club events on and off the water!
