Sealskinz Sealz the deal
Yes at the recent, brilliant, WAI quiz I was the recipient of a fine pair of SealSkinz waterproof socks (worth about €35, although they may have been secondhand so value to be adjusted accordingly!) I’m not sure how I came to win them – as I tried to sneak home with my sulking team after not coming third, I was eagerly sought out by two fine quiz-organisers who insisted I wait to be awarded this valuable prize. This was either to buy my silence or in recognition that I knew that Babylon was in the land known as Iraq today, or that Abu Simbel temple in Egypt is on the shores of Lake Nasser (the lake that was formed when the River Nile was dammed to control annual flooding)

It was a great night, and I look forward to next year (if I'm welcome!) where I shall wear my SealSkinz socks and my raffle prize jumper and lead my team in reclaiming the coveted third place spot! Congratulations to those who did come third (and first, and second). Keep those third place seats warm…!

Thanks again to the organisers for the craic and hard work. All proceeds went to Mountain Rescue which is a most noble charity. (for those interested in my original ‘Gleninagh or Gleninagh’ write-up of the quiz see here: http://mountainviews.ie/motleyviews/general/comment/6692/ )

With our own annual MountainViews event on 22nd February fast approaching, I hope we can have as good as attendance and as much of a successful night. To pre-book your place, simply email secretary@mountainviews.ie for details
