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.
