RAFALO’s Quiz Night
RAF Marham’s Royal Air Forces Association Liaison Officers (RAFALO’s) played host to members from each of the RAFA branches that it supports on 6th April 2011 for a Quiz Night in the WO and Sgts’ Mess.
The aim of the evening was to integrate the supported branches together at RAF Marham and for them to meet up with old friends and make new ones, in a relaxed and friendly environment. It also gave the RAFALO’s the opportunity to demonstrate the ongoing support and commitment that RAF Marham has to serving the welfare of these branches and RAFA as a whole.
The evening was a resounding success, with over 50 members participating, and a team from the Downham Market branch scooping first prize in the quiz, on what proved to be a very closely contested competition.
It was also due to the generosity of many of RAF Marham’s Squadrons/Sections and BAE Systems, that the RAFALO’s were able to hold a raffle with some very unique and special prizes. The raffle, along with the auction of a signed Red Arrows book, went down a storm on the night and raised an additional £100 for the RAF Association’s Wings Appeal.
Thanks go to SAC Chrissie Hall and SAC Richard Bartholomew for organising the raffle and auction, to SAC (T) Kerry Smith for organising the security arrangements and quiz, to Sgt Tom Sawyer for his ‘Quiz Master’ impression all evening, and to the other RAFALOs who assisted throughout the evening.
