Fundraiser not a triv­ial thing

En­trants have fun, learn at school’s game show night

Central and North Burnett Times - - YOUR COMMUNITY -

IN THE pur­suit of trivia and a sense of com­mu­nity, 75 peo­ple showed up in Eidsvold to match their skills in gen­eral knowl­edge, wit and sense of hu­mour.

“Par­tic­i­pants were able to bring their own food and re­fresh­ments (wine) to en­joy dur­ing the games, so it was a night of friends, food and facts,” trivia master Trudie Roth said.

“Trivia night po­si­tions friend against friend as teams of six strate­gise, choose an ap­pro­pri­ate name and a cap­tain then com­pete hard and fast.”

Event or­gan­iser and Eidsvold P and C pres­i­dent Tanya Camp­bell was thrilled with the support.

“There was a great team from Mun­dub­bera here tonight and that team were hot favourites,” Ms Camp­bell said.

“I think we can call this one a big suc­cess and we will do it again.”

Trivia nights held at schools will at­tract some wily peo­ple and this one proved to be no ex­cep­tion.

Teams con­tain­ing English, math, sci­ence teach­ers and a prin­ci­pal are now banned.

The event raised about $400 to help support ed­u­ca­tion in Eidsvold.

The night was a part of the Eidsvold State School’s 125-year an­niver­sary and the event sup­ports pro­grams and projects in school.

“This unique event, it is like a be­ing at a game show with­out ever hav­ing to leave Eidsvold,” is how one con­tes­tant de­scribed it.

“The most fun we've had in years!” another said.

“I can't wait to do it again!”

A win­ning ta­ble is crowned at the end of each round and after 14 rounds the over­all win­ner was de­cided.
