Table Quiz 2015

DFR Table Quiz 2015 Thank YouOur annual quiz in The George was a huge success with great feedback from lots of participants.

It was a great result for the club with €1,510 raised from the quiz itself and a huge success for Yes Equality, our raffle raised €1,900, we’ll be donating this over the coming days to support the campaign.

There are lots of people to thank, the committee, all the DFR’s who attended and helped out on the night our sponsors who provided prizes for the raffle and of course our wonderful quiz host.

Quiz, Wednesday Run and Theatre

Quiz night

We had a very successful quiz night, raising in excess of €2,500, with 31 tables, the most in recent years, a fantastic performance  Well done to Adrian F and team as winners, and to all who participated on tables or in the raffle on the night. There was some great positive feedback from members and non-members.

Thanks are due to Andy for setting the questions, which were kept a closely guarded secret until the night, which was probably just as well….

Thanks also to Kieran who helped out with logistics; to Martha, Bairbre, Erich, Dave S and Claire for marking/scoring; and to the rest of the committee for helping out.

Our quiz wouldn’t be possible without our sponsors and donors of prizes, so thanks to the club members and their businesses who helped out with prizes.

Wednesday run

Don’t forget our Wednesday evening run is back to its summer location: from this Wednesday 1 May at 19.30 from the cricket club car park in the Phoenix Park.  Entering the Park through the main Parkgate St entrance, continue on Chesterfield Ave straight through the first (Wellington) roundabout, then take the second small left turn.

DFR 5k Pride Run

Registration is now open  – see our website http://dublinfrontrunners.ie/wp/index.php/pride-run/

Promotional flyers are available (thanks to John O’S), so please take some if you can put them  up in your workplace, gym, or other locations.

The Couch to 5k programme is continuing in the Park at 10.00 on Saturdays, it’s not too late to join.

Theatre Festival night out

It’s that time of year when the luvvies get even luvvier, and the drama queens get even more dramatic – the Gay Theatre Festival!  Andy has intensively researched all the critical reviews, production credits, festival prizes won, actors’ and directors’ histories, and has come up with some artistic suggestions based on the amount of naked flesh involved:

It’s the annual Gay Theatre festival starting 6th of May, so we’ll have a night out Saturday May 11th. We’ll pick 1 or 2 plays (One for the girlies, one for the boys). You book and buy your own ticket, and we’ll meet afterwards for drinks in the Front Lounge.Suggested plays:
