From John Wahlers:

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I don't know if any of your current quizzers will know or remember Norman Dugdale, who most recently quizzed for the New Brighton Cricket Club Extras, but I want to let the League know that he passed away peacefully after a short illness on Monday 2nd of January this New Year.  Norman has been actively and enthusiastically quizzing since the 1970's, when he was part of the MANWEB team as far as I can tell from his extensive notes, but his involvement may go back even further. I am sure some of your more senior members would be able to correct me if I am wrong.  Any history or anecdotes that people may wish to share will be very happily received.  His partner Evelyn Peachey who passed away in 2003 was also an active Quizzer.

Norman finally gave up serious quizzing in the Leagues about two years ago after heart problems but I know from recent conversations that he missed the social interaction and the excitement and challenge of the events right up to the end.

His funeral and cremation will be at Landican Cemetery on Wednesday the 25th of January 2017 at 11:30 in the morning and anyone who wishes to attend will be very welcome.

Thank you.

John Wahlers (Norman's Cousin)
