We play golf putting on the carpet at The Redwood Club in Tawa Wellington NZ. The back board is easy to make or usually can be purchased. Great fun for left or right habders.

What a good test off memory but it is a pity you did not supply the answers as I have never heard of many of them

American Football or Soccer?

I say again that Soccer is one of many forms of football or footy, just as American football, Rugby Union, Rugby League, and others are. Actually those responsible for insisting that football is Soccer are correct but to rename Soccer as Football only are misusing the word. Let's all call the game Soccer and avoid the confusion with the other forms of Football

Croquet sounds an interesting game to get our residents up and active so I am exploring making the hoop from your instructions and acquiring a club as well but need some guidance on how the game is played. We have a carpeted area to play it on and some Bocci balls to use but how is scoring made. I would like some guidance on the proceedure please.

Quizzes of every kind can be found on this site. I have actually made up quite a few which are available but you can get more by googling "Quizzes" on the internet. Take your pick from a straight subject quiz to a quirkey quiz which uses puns to get the brain box working. These are a lot of fun

American Football or Soccer?

In New Zealand Soccer is Association Football and Football is Rugby (Union), Rugger or Footy. Other games of football are Rugby League, American Football or Gridiron, Sevens (in Rugby Union), and a number of other variations in some sports. But Football has always meant Soccer.

Quirky Quiz - Powerpoint

Quirky Quizzes
I gathered the Quirky Quiz questions from many places, mostly from the various Golden Carers sites, and converted some of the more newsy statements into querty quiz question form, putting up to 30 of them into a one A4 page question numbered list with answer format that could be used as a Quirky Quiz session or time filler. There are many words with double meanings or which can be pronounced differently with a change of one or two letters that can be made into a querty question. I will convert what I have done into PDF from Publisher for you since you are interested.

Winter Campfire

Scouting and Guiding have a lot to give to Age Concern residents so it is good to know your talents are not being wasted. Make use of your training in both of these organisations for the benefit of the elderly which is always greatly appreciated, Songs, games, stunts, campfires, all can be adapted to the age group and loved. Take my word for it,
