Recaps from Woodley Team Countdown 2015

Post by Tony Atkins » Tue Aug 11, 2015 7:13 pm

This was held at Christ Church in Woodley, near Reading. This is the home too of COREA. This was the third
team event for the local non-apterite players to take part in, without the embarassment of not getting good answers
playing by themselves (previous editions were in 2013 and 2011). I was host, with special guest hosts Catriona and Dave
Cappleman (parents of current series champion), and with extra help from Beryl Wootton.

All conundrums are words on the Christians Against Poverty website http://www.capuk.org/
for which money was being raised.

Is this why the Capplemans were invited?
