Indoor Meeting, 7.00 for 7.30 start, Members' Evening - Christmas Social and Quiz!
Monday 10 December (Indoor Meeting, 7.00 for 7.30 start): Members' Evening - Christmas Social and Quiz! This is our annual chance for members to share their geological experiences in a sociable atmosphere with a Christmas buffet provided by the Society. Following the success of last year’s quiz (which was postponed due to adverse weather) we will be asking you once again to get into teams, put your thinking caps on and be prepared to answer a mix of geological and Black Country themed questions – something for everyone, and no pressure! Please also bring along your geological specimens for admiration, discussion and identification as usual.
