Annual general meeting, and quiz
After a business-like formal meeting, nineteen members were treated to a light-hearted quiz. This was compiled by quizmaster Roger Reynolds, who taxed our brains with some interesting questions.
The first part was a page of twenty-five Latin words for colours, and we had to identify each one. The first albus was easy, but as the list went on the words became more complicated. My favourite was pavonius—I now know it means peacock blue.
Roger then produced three pages, in the style of TV quiz Only Connect, of common plant names for us to sort into categories. This was very entertaining, and good for the grey matter.
The final part of the quiz was matching pictures of winter twigs to their leaves. The twig images had already been sent by attachment to save time. This was not so easy, as many leaves are similar. However, some members did well, and identified many correctly.
Unfortunately, no prizes, but I think everyone that took part enjoyed themselves. The Zoom meeting was a great success and went without hitches.
