The Trivia Night on August 24th was enjoyed by more than 70 BBTC members, friends and families. Many thanks to Glenda and David Nicholson who again provided an interesting and entertaining set of Trivia questions. The Trivia Competition was won by the Daborn/Yen/Weedon table who demonstrated their wide knowledge of Trivia in a narrow win. Thanks to our generous sponsors who provided the many prizes for the raffle. We raised just over $1000 towards the Hitting wall and Hot Shots Court which is now completed. Watch out for the announcement of the Grand Opening/Family day in October. Thanks to all members who supported the Trivia Night and Raffle.
