Message from John Portman

Hello everyone

Now that the New Year dust has settled I would like to thank all the Quiz Teams for the very memorable evening on December 17th 2013.

I was genuinely overwhelmed by the reaction from you all at the announcement of my “retirement”, it wasn’t until I got home and opened all the cards and gifts that I realised what had happened.

Thank you all for your generosity and kind wishes.

I would particularly like to thank Margaret Duffy for the remarkable cake she made and so expertly decorated and as my wife Sandra pointed out I should have cut into it and shared it with you all, my only defence is “I’m a bloke”.

I used some of the donated cash to purchase a new large computer monitor, which with my failing eyesight is something I should have done whilst I was still compiling quizzes !

I have been looking back at the archives and I found what I believe was the first quiz I did at PDGC and that is dated February 1999.

I have thoroughly enjoyed Tuesday nights and it has been very rewarding watching the Quiz Night develop over the years.

I sincerely hope we can find a way of making sure the event carries on and flourishes.

Finally, once again thank you all for your support and thank you for lots of very pleasant memories.

Best Wishes

John Portman
