LAST Friday night, the Zonta Club of the Whitsundays held their third Trivia Night. It was a huge success, raising much needed funds to support their local community projects.
Thanks to all of the generous sponsors, who donated so readily, particularly Vicky from Whitsunday Reflections Apartments. Thanks also to most of those who attended and were there for an evening of “fun and fund-raising.”
Unfortunately, some participants left their manners elsewhere and I personally feel they disrupted and tarnished proceedings.
Their unacceptable “behaviour” also contributed to the late finishing of the event. Eti- quette! If you intend to sit and chat with friends, then repeatedly request that questions be “repeated,” Don’t come to Trivia. Catch up with your mates elsewhere.
As MC, I found the constant outright rudeness of a handful of participants deplorable. These people had no regard or respect for others there to enjoy the Trivia aspect of proceedings, nor for myself.
At times I considered putting the microphone down and walking out. True story.
As a teacher, I occasionally need to deal with non-compliant primary school children. I didn’t expect to have to try and “manage” rude, inconsiderate behaviour from adults at a community fund-raiser.
I’m not a member of Zonta, yet volunteered to spend hours preparing the Trivia questions and researching the answers. Good luck to the next person who takes on the challenge. Karen Collins AIRLIE BEACH
