Lions 105EA Weekly News 21st January 2018

From DG Derek – District Quiz
The new format of direct entry to the final at the Ipswich Hotel (once known as the Copdock and more recently as the Cameo) on Saturday 3rd February without qualifying heats at Zone level, has encouraged more clubs to enter a team this year.
However, there is still room for a few more clubs to come along and enjoy an afternoon of fellowship and fun along with a few testing questions.
Teams of 4 only need a minimum of 2 Lions with non-Lions allowed (if you want) to make up the team.
If you would like to come along, please let Competitions Officer Dave Parker, Home: 01277 656463 Mobile: 07879 000126 Email: know by Thursday 25th so catering can be arranged.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
Best regards
Derek Prior
District Governor 2017 – 2018 Lions District 105EA
