Teams test knowl­edge for YMCA

Suc­cess­ful event raises $2900 for gym ren­o­va­tions

Central and North Burnett Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

IN A pur­suit any­thing but triv­ial, YMCA Gayn­dah’s trivia night raised about $2900 to­wards its gym ren­o­va­tions.

Pres­i­dent Dael Gid­dins de­scribed the com­mu­nity sup­port from par­tic­i­pants, spon­sors and vol­un­teers as “just awe­some”.

“A to­tal of 19 teams turned up for the event – more than ex­pected, and the largest num­ber of teams for any trivia night that I can re­mem­ber,” Ms Gid­dins said.

A new, well-re­ceived round was tri­alled, in which teams guessed the band and song from a screened video.

All rounds were closely con­tested, with some need­ing a tie-breaker to get a win­ner, Ms Gid­dins said.

“The win­ning mar­gin was only a half-point dif­fer­ence be­tween No Knots and Won No­tion, with third place go­ing to Vil­lage Idiots.

“The best dressed award went to Tasha Shepherd in her ref­eree’s out­fit.”

Ms Gid­dins gave spe­cial thanks to gold spon­sor RMPS En­gi­neer­ing, sil­ver spon­sors Cardno and Ful­ton Ho­gan, lo­cal businesses for prizes on the night and to vol­un­teers.
