Cup and Plate Draws...

The Cup and Plate will progress as follows this year:-

The 10 losers of the Cup Round 1 games go into the Plate whilst the 10 winners are joined by the 6 teams who had “byes” or set / asked questions last week to make up the last 16 for the Cup.

The 10 teams in the Plate have all played and lost one game and 2 of those teams have been drawn to set questions for the next round, along with a further 4 teams to act as Question Masters for all the games.

Just 2 of the 10 teams in the Plate need to be eliminated to leave us with the last 8 next time, so there are just 2 games between the remaining teams in Plate Round 1.

After the next round we will be left with 8 teams in the Cup and 8 in the Plate.

The Draw is as below...

In Memoriam - Rick Davis

Allan Sherratt, a long-time member of the Church House Bollington team and a good friend of Rick Davis and his family, spoke with me some weeks ago about the possibility of a Quiz League trophy being presented each year that would have Rick’s name attached to it.

Rick’s mother, Zena, would be very happy to have Rick’s memory perpetuated in this way and she would also supply a new trophy for the purpose. We did mention the subject at the AGM, but the best way to decide how to do this is to canvas opinion from all concerned, hence that is what I’m doing now.

The Committee are more than open to the idea and initial thoughts are around a completely new trophy of some sort, perhaps one awarded for best refreshments at the end of the night, or best all round hospitality of some sort? That thought occurred to us only as it was a subject Rick was always interested in, but we are open to any suggestions anyone may have!  Best Question Master also occurred to me, as Rick was so good at doing that job.

Please let me know what you think of this idea and how best we may bring it about, or indeed any other ideas that you have along these lines. It would be ideal to have something in place before the end of the season.
