I (AS) would like someone to take on the organisation of quizzes from next month, as I continue to have problems with my left eye. I will manage to sort out this months quiz with some difficulty. Last month ( January) a dear friend, who is not an U3A member, sorted out some of the admin, and, of course, my partner helped, although he rarely goes to the quiz nights.
If no one can step in, then the quizzes will cease for the near future at least.
if you can spare about 3/4 hours a month to sort out one quiz, then I’d love to hear from you. If you can take on two quizzes a month, or two people volunteer to do the admin, then we can offer the old format of 2 quizzes a month.
The admin is largely done electronically with the exception of listing the cheques so that the treasurer can bank them. I list the cheques manually, although this could be done electronically .
Liaison with the White Swan over dates and the menu, liaising with the Treasurer and Maureen over payment, as well as writing entries for the Bulletin and website are additional tasks. I always try to go to the pub to make sure the evening runs smoothly, even if I don’t participate in the quiz.
I hope this gives a flavour of what is involved, and I’d be happy to talk to anyone who is interested in taking over from me at least until I am able to read and write without a magnifying glass.
