Virtual Taskmaster Social

| 12th November 2020

Everybody being indoors kicking their heels meant Aylsham Round Table had to put their thinking caps on to have another virtual meet up that kept us tablers and our families entertained. Some bright spark thought Virtual Taskmaster may be the ideal entertainment…

By now if you haven’t seen or heard of the BAFTA-winning comedy game show Taskmaster then you must have been living in a cave so check it out on Channel 4 (All4). In the show the Taskmaster Greg Davies and his loyal sidekick Alex Horne challenge famous contestants to complete a series of weird and wonderful tasks. Some (Most) say our Chairman is a bit of a Taskmaster so what a better way to find out then a virtual event to entertain so here’s how it worked:

  1. Prior to the event, each tabler had to bring the best drinking receptacle (that appealed to the Taskmaster!).
  2. Drop an egg from the height of your outstretched arm whilst standing on a chair. Most innovative wins.
  3. Best cereal picture of the Chairman.
  4. Best movie re-enactment whilst in silence.
  5. Most ingenious, death defying throw and catch of a teabag.
  6. Look at a live streamed view of the Chairman’s kitchen and name as many objects as you can beginning with P.

On face value these may look like basic tasks but when you add the jeopardy of tablers and partners having a domestic then it all got very entertaining. From Wrighty risking life and limb to make a failed tea bag throw to El Presidente Marks re-enacting “Ghost” with his partner and uber busy hands it all went a bit wrong. However, the Chairman was most impressed with the artistic talents of the group with their cereal pictures (see left).

Most disappointed that no tablers managed to spot the pea in the kitchen but a great night nonetheless and another way to entertain during these lockdown times. Ultimately, the Mitchells (not Phil and Grant) ran out winners but the real winner was Zoom who I’d imagine has done very well out this pandemic. 🙂
