Spring Konshinkai

Thanks to everyone who attended the online Spring Konshinkai, it was great to see both new and familiar faces. Rotating through the rooms it was great to see people coming together, sharing some light hearted banter and talking about all things topical.

While the Olympics quiz was fiercely contested it was a tonne of fun and in the end Timmy Tam prevailed for his second win this year. Look out for the next Konshikai in early October and we look forward to seeing you there.

For those with a trivia itch:
