Inner Wheel quiz teams from the Galashiels and Eastern Borders clubs, with district chairman Vi Romanis.
Vi, from the Galashiels club, had been challenged to pull together an inter-club quiz to represent the 13 clubs in the district which covers east central and southern Scotland.
The first of seven heats started with Galashiels hosting Eastern Borders. Questions ranged from “Events in 2013” to “Inside Inner Wheel” – with the visitors running out comfortable winners.
When all of the heats have been completed, two of the victorious teams will be pulled from a hat to face each other in the final at the district rally to be held June.
At Galashiels Inner Wheelers’ latest meeting, Kathryn Peden from the Citizens’ Advice Bureau spoke about the organisation’s work in the town .
President Rosemary McCosh presented member Susan Moore with a gift and birthday cake (made by a fellow member) on the occasion of her 80th birthday.
Inner Wheeler Moira Shanks will be welcomed as speaker at the next meeting. With the help of local churches, she is co-founder of the food bank in Galashiels.
Inner Wheel Day was celebrated last month and as this is a special year – the organisation’s 90th birthday – members were invited to bring 90p. They rolled the coins for bottle skittles and celebrated with an informal lunch, accompanied by Rotarians.
Proceeds will be placed in the club’s charity fund for distribution later in the year.
