Open Mic 1st September

Open Mic returns at 8pm next Thursday, 1st September, with the usual eclectic mix of performances and styles.  As usual anyone is free to sign up and perform three songs.  Bring a bottle and expect the unexpected!

The Rec-Quiz-Its

Don’t forget to come along to the Old Crown in Twerton High Street at 9pm tonight if you want to join the “Rec-Quiz-Its” quiz team – 100% success so far!  £1.50 entry per player but you’ve a good chance of getting it back…

For those still baffled by last week’s teaser, the connection was acronyms:

  • DINKY – Double Income, No Kids Yet
  • BASIC – Beginners’ All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code
  • PLUTO – PipeLine Under The Ocean
  • ASH – Action on Smoking and Health
  • TESSA – Tax-Exempt Special Savings Account
  • ERNIE – Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment

Don’t worry, the questions aren’t all as hard as that!  The Rec House will be holding its own quiz on Thursday 8th September.

UPDATE: A third success last night with a record score of 50.



The Rec-Quiz-Its

Another resounding success for the “Rec-Quiz-Its” quiz team last night as we stormed to victory at the Old Crown pub with a massive 48 points, more than twice the second-placed team.  We may be entering some other local quizzes in future.  Contact Guy if you’re interested in joining the team.

Try the following from last night’s “Find the Connection” round.  If the six answers were Dinky toys, Basic Instinct, Pluto, Ash, Tessa Sanderson and Ernie (The Fastest Milkman in the West), what was the connection?

Rec House Committee

We’re hoping to run the Rec House a little differently in future, with more direct involvement from the people who use it.  A committee has been set up to oversee the operation of the Rec House and any regular user is welcome to join.  We meet roughly once a month, with our next meeting at 11am on Thursday 25th August.  If you’d like to take part then please contact the Secretary, Guy Barry, or just turn up on the day.

Community Choir

The Rec House Community Choir (formerly known as Twerton Singers) is taking a break now for a few weeks, but will reassemble at 7pm on Monday 5th September.  Rehearsals will now last 90 minutes rather than an hour and the repertoire is being chosen by the choir members themselves.  Everyone is free to come along, regardless of previous musical experience, and no sight-reading is required.  Please contact Guy if you want to know anything more about the choir.
