FUN DAY, QUESADA
ARPO and the local Extinguished Firefighters enjoyed a fabulous 'Fun Day' at The Green Baize, Quesada, where challenges for Darts, Pool, Dominoes and Snooker were hotly contested! The competitions started at 11am and everyone entered into the spirit with a mixture of fun and competitiveness! Half way through proceedings, a very welcome fish and chip lunch was provided by Quesada Fish and Chips (next door) which was excellent and enjoyed by everyone!
The second half of the Fun Day got down to the serious business of the quarter finals and semi-finals and eventually all the games had been played. It had been neck and neck during some matches but the victors, on this occasion, were the Extinguished Firefighters who received the 'special' trophy.
There was a very generous raffle of bottles, some of which had been donated by those attending, and all the proceeds of €139 will go to OUTREACH in Torreveija.
The original idea and Challenge organiser was ex Firefighter Dave Graham and our Chairmain, Fred Wharton, gave due thanks and applause on behalf of ARPO. Thanks were also given to the staff of The Green Baize.
The presentation to the various winners was made by Dave Graham and our Chairman mentioned that a 'return challenge' would be arranged by ARPO next year!
