Friday Evening Quiz

A Friday Evening Quiz online (using Zoom), led and compiled by Iain; starting at 7pm. Please contact Iain (see Who’s Who page for contact details) if you are, or may be, interested in taking part.
He will then send you the link to ‘click’ on the night so that you can join in. Some people are ‘regulars’ and others join in when they can.

How did it start? When Lockdown was imposed in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 virus, several members decided that we could keep in touch by having a ‘meeting’ online.  Friday evening quiz was started by Iain and it has carried on since then on Fridays at 7pm.  The quiz is FUN and not ‘mastermind’!  And, each week, Iain sets a ‘task’ so that everyone can contribute on the night.


Several Caledonian Society members join Paul Woods and others for a ‘Country Walk finishing with a Lunch‘. Contact Paul Woods, who organises and leads the walks, for details of the next one! You can join them for the walk, the walk and lunch or just the lunch. However it is essential to let Paul know prior to the day of the walks.

See Walks page for photographs of recent walks and for information about the next arranged walk, when those details become available.
