Sidmouth quiz night raises �800 for boat hope
Gig Club fun
A QUIZ night raised �800 towards Sidmouth Gig Club’s bid to buy a wooden boat.
Participants were invited aboard ‘Alma Airways Flight 101’ as part of the all things airborne-themed evening.
Riotous fun was had as quiz winners were decided in a grand finale that involved revellers having to construct an airship to safely land an egg flown from the balcony of the Port Royal to the pavement below.
Winning team, named The Gang of Four, held on to a narrow lead to secure victory.
