The Lincolnshire Showground at Grange-de-Lings in Lincoln will play host to a novel countryside quiz, buffet supper and raffle on Tuesday 4th November 2008 starting at 6.30pm and is being organised by the Lincolnshire Committee of The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.
The battle of wits commences at 6.30pm and tickets cost £60 per team of four. The organisers are on a mission to find the top Lincolnshire team and there will be team as well as individual prizes. Early booking is advisable as it is anticipated that this challenging event will attract a good crowd of countryside enthusiasts. Questions will range from the light-hearted to the more testing issues on countryside topics.
Funds raised will go towards the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust’s scientific research into Britain’s game and wildlife. The countryside quiz is being generously sponsored by Duncan & Toplis Chartered Accountants, Andrew & Co.LLP Solicitors, Phillips Seeds and Marsh, serving East Midlands farmers. Closing date for entries is midday on Friday 17th October 2008. Tickets can be obtained by contacting James Milligan Manby on either 01472 398304 or 07971 283404 or by email to James@thorganby.plus.com.
