Christmas Quiz and Awards Night 2019

December 15th saw Triathlon Redditch’s annual Christmas Quiz and Awards Night, again held at the Cricket club in Alvechurch. Quiz-master John Legge provided us with the questions which ranged from the impossible via the now traditional Triathlon and Scottish questions to the much easier. This was bisected with a buffet that being Triathletes we had to remember it wasn’t a feed station. Its amazing given last year’s behavior, that the cakes survived until after most of the savories had gone – I’m sure that says something about us…. This was followed by our awards night. The winners are below. Special Congratulations to Julie Brown who was voted by his fellow Triathletes as Triathlete’s Triathlete 2019, and to Louise Morey and John Legge who were awarded Female and Male Triathlete of the year respectively.

Thanks need to go to Rhona for organising the Venue and the buffet, To John Legge for organising the quiz, and managing to keep us rabble under control, and to everyone who voted for and provided suggestions for awards. All that remains to be said, from all at the club Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
