Fundraiser not a trivial thing
Entrants have fun, learn at school’s game show night
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.
TEAM PUZZLED: The team from Mundubbera that almost scooped the pool in Eidsvold. The inter-town rivalry did not spoil the fun while in the pursuit of trivia glory.
