22nd June 2019 Trivia Night
Category : Uncategorized
Fifty members and their families and friends enjoyed a great night’s entertainment in the Clubhouse on Saturday 22nd June. It was also great to see Junior members and their families enjoying the fun. As usual, Glenda and David Nicholson produced a variety of interesting questions and competitions to keep the evening flowing. Identifying the pictures posted on the noticeboards proved too difficult for most of us and the True or False got us up and moving.
The Trivia Competition was won by the table organised by Cynthia Scott, our mid-week Ladies Convenor and all players received dinner vouchers at local restaurants as prizes. The Grand Raffle with a first prize of a $100 voucher from Kmart and about 60 other prizes valued from $10 to $50 saw a record number of tickets purchased and the first prize was won by member Jill Drew, a Mid-week Ladies player. By the end of the draw, each table had won several prizes. Other Prize winners for the night were Who am I? – Jill Drew; What am I? – Arthur Yuill; Music Bingo – Hayley Cole.
A hot supper was served and the evening finished with tea and coffee and cakes and buns donated by committee members and the two bakeries at Burnt Bridge. One member who attended with her family commented on how well the evening had been run and she couldn’t believe how quickly the evening had gone. We finished at about 11.30pm.
Many thanks go to Glenda and David for organising the Trivia competition and to Bev, Cynthia, Jan, Deb, Denise, Kerry and Lea who organised and donated raffle prizes and helped set up and clean up before and after the event. Thanks also to Andrew Bencina (winterhillmusic.com.au) for setting up the speakers for Music Bingo and microphone and a big thank you to the members who came along and supported our fundraising.
Thanks also to our many sponsors for their generous help. There is a list of sponsors posted at the clubhouse and on the web site. Please give them your support.
