10 goodgymers made their way to Abbeyfield Care home for our monthly quiz. It was Janet’s first time as quiz master and there were rounds on Remembrance Day, 50 (as Janet recently completed her 50th mission) and general knowledge. The multiple choice round on the theme of 50 proved tricky but lots of points were scored in the final multiple choice round. The Coasters Team won with 24/30, closely followed by Loose Women with 23/30 and Dream Team with 21/30.

What a great turn out for this week's quiz!! Janet, Eleanor, Ross and Caprice met for the group Run and met GoodGymers Katie and Hannah at the Care home. Newbies Poppy and Millie arrived after their 40 minute stomp to the session. Well done to them! And we were then joined by Emma and some more new faces Shirley, Kansool and Shaila. We had actually met the week previous but the session unfortunately had to be cancelled last minute so it was lovely to see everyone again. After a quick introductions and after meeting the residents the teams were split into three team, "Loose Women" the "Eight Wise Men" and of course "The Winners Table" This week's quiz consisted of four rounds, Round 1 Halloween Trivia, Round 2 True or False (very random addition!) Round 3 General knowledge and Round 4 The Music Round with this week being "name that horror movie soundtrack" All teams did a great job and it was right down to the wire. With "The eight wise men" getting a grand score of 24/40, closely followed by "The winners table" with 26. This week though it was "The Loose Women" who snatched the title this week with 26.5, yes just half a point in it!! Well done to everyone and thanks to the residents who are always so welcoming, we love our monthly quiz. See you again hopefully next Monday to help at the charity Hope Housing or if not see you in a month for another Care Home Quiz! 😁

Quiz time again and what a cracking turnout from both GoodGymers and residents. Four teams were made with Daryl joining 'The Castaways.' Katie and Ross joining 'GoodGym Guys.' Sue joining 'Vicky's Wine Club' and Hannah and Neil joining 'Abbeyfield A-Team.'
Quiz master Caprice put them through their paces with four tough rounds.. Round 1 - General Knowledge, Round two - True or False (with fun facts about broccoli) , Round 3 - Cheese or Service Station? (some tricky ones but they all sounded like cheese to me!) And finally a little twist on the music Round with Round 4 - Name The Year Of The Song.
All teams did well but 'Vicky's Wine Club' smashed it again with 30/50! They obviously know their cheeses from their service stations!!
Next week GoodGym Bournemouth will be celebrating their 7 year anniversary. To celebrate the team will be meeting for a Group Run to Durley Chine to perform a litter pick followed by beach party fun and games!! We hope to see you there!
