Saturday 11 February 2019, 10am for 10.15 start.
19 people attended the Shaftesbury Quiz Walk on Sunday 28 October which attests to the popularity of these events. Daphne and Jenny recently took part in the Quiz Walk in Bridport, organised by Richard and Brenda N. for Sherborne U3A and it was so enjoyable that they wanted to offer this to Dorset Ramblers in the next programme. Saturday has been chosen rather than Sunday in order to take advantage of the shops and markets in the town - it will be busier but, they thought, more fun.
Details for Quiz Walk - ARRIVAL TIME AND MEETING PLACE. Arrive at 10 am for a 10:15 am start for the first team. For parking see directions below. We will meet at the Ropemakers Pub, 36 West Street, Bridport DT6 3QP . tel: 01308 421255. Please don’t arrive earlier as the Ropemakers does not open until 10am.
The Landlady has been very generous in providing complementary Coffees and Teas before we start.
We will put you into teams of three or four, and send you on your way at 5 minute intervals from 10 am onwards. Walking is on pavements, so no need for hiking boots, BUT, BE PREPARED FOR RAIN!!
LUNCH - We will be sitting down for lunch at 1 pm at the Ropemakers, and hopefully pre-ordering will mean smooth service. Jenny will send out menu when they have updated their current one – so we do need slips returned to register interest. We are allocated a separate ‘quadrant’ of the pub so we can reveal answers and award prizes for the winners!
Please bring a pen, mobile phone and a clip board if you have one.
Directions for Car Park : Either take the A35 from Dorchester to Bridport (the best option, as the views are quite spectacular), or the A30 towards Crewkerne, then take the A3066 through Beaminster to Bridport.
When you get to Bridport, from either route, at the first main roundabout go through Bridport on East Street. Continue along West Street to the small roundabout almost at the end of West Street, take a left to the Car Park, which is next to the Bus Station and Police Station. The parking fee is £2.80 all day.
Walk back along West Street to the Ropemakers which is on the right.
Please complete the slip, sent to members with the newsletter, to register interest and return by Friday 1 February. Jenny will then send out menu.
