Quiz night success

by | Jul 27, 2014

With the tables set, the doors opened and the crowd started flowing in. A total of 14 tables filled the Marist Clubrooms  with team names ranging from “The Never Weres”  – a take on the “has beens”  to “Who’s Paying” and “Triathletes Can ride Bikes”  the night was set to be a fun event.

The quiz master for the night, William Taylor, stated the obvious rules and housekeeping matters including where the bar was located and that drinks to him would be taken as bribes.

The first round was the photo round and with an obvious advantage the Palmy Pack took a strong lead with a perfect score.

Round 2 saw a range of scores from 7 to 15 scored by “Go Home Aussies”  which helped them claw back the gap between them and the Palmy Pack

With questions like Where would you be if you didn’t have your feet in your gumboots?  And the answer “You’d be in the hospital or infirmary” there was enough light hearted questions to keep everyone amused and sometimes bewildered.

A simple maths question in round 5 had some amasing answers.  Ruth needed 33kg of berries to make berry jam. She had 8 kg of Strawberries and 8 kg of blueberries . How many more kgs did she need.  A few true false questions and multi choice meant that each team was able to get points on every round.

The Go  Home Aussies were the eventual winners. In the first round where there was an obvious photo of the Great Australian Bite they didn’t even get that one right and so were awarded a bag of onions to clear their eyes for future rounds.

A fun night was had by all and a good amount of money was raised for the junior development fund.

Thanks to the sponsors and organisers and quiz master and judges.
