The 121 Squadron 'Staff' team, known as the 'Big Stick' On the 7th February cadets and staff from the Squadron donned their thinking caps for a quiz night at the Nuneaton Griff & Coton Sports Club. Teams of budding brain boxes from the cadets and staff joined teams of parents, friends and other regular quiz fanatics as they battled it out over successive rounds of questions covering a wide variety of subjects.

The regular monthly charity Quiz Nights at the club are organised by the quiz master Roy Hill and the proceeds are donated to various local organisations and charities. On this occasion Roy and his team managed to raise £276 for the Squadron.

By the end of the night, the 'Staff' team, known as the 'Big Stick' (A play on words) had completely exhausted their grey matter, that is assuming they had some in the first place. Having said that they did manage to achieve a score of 136 points, the winners, 'The Bunnies' managed to tot up 167 points. The 'Big Stick' team were particularly pleased with their result as it put them ahead of their main rivals, a family team known as 'The Mensa Rejects'.

The cadets and staff of 121(Nuneaton)Squadron ATC would like to take this opportunity to thank Roy Hill and his wife Karen and friend Maureen, for organising the Quiz. We would also like to thank John, who donated the batches and also sold the Raffle tickets with Georgina Haywood. Thanks also to Fosseway Radio for the kind donation of many prizes and to all the other people who donated raffle prizes. The money raised during the night will help the Squadron to continue to provide a valuable service to young people within Nuneaton and North Warwickshire area.
