Friday 22nd June saw our first Murder Mystery evening here at the Historic Dockyard Museum. The ten suspects included either well known characters from Falklands history or, characters with a connection to the Islands. Only two of the ten teams worked out that the murderer was none other than Charles Barnard ... played by Steve Fowmes. Well done to Naomi's Ninjas for scoring the most points overall and coming out triumphant.
