Kiwis try for biggest quiz
Quiz fans get ready for a big night out.
The ASB Challenge New Zealand’s Biggest Quiz Night is on at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on May 24.
It will be the largest single gathering of quiz-goers ever seen in New Zealand and an official attempt to set a new Guinness World Record for the world’s largest quiz.
It will also be raising funds to help the Rotary Club of Auckland with its various community projects.
Live and silent auctions will benefit a major Rotary project, the Tyla – Turn Your Life Around – programme.
The event will combine all the traditional elements of a typical pub, club or corporate quiz night.
“New Zealanders seem to love attending quiz nights, watching quiz shows or playing quiz games,” says event coordinator Gregory Stewart.
“This event gives Kiwis the opportunity not only to take part in the biggest quiz night ever, but they can also help raise funds for charity and claim a world record for New Zealand in the process,” Mr Stewart says.
Quiz master for the evening will be singer and performer Jackie Clarke.
More than 200 tables of eight will get the chance to compete for the first prize of $4000.
There will be eight rounds, each with 10 questions, and the night will conclude with a performance from Debbie Harwood.
The record for the largest quiz ever held in one location – with 1566 participants – was set in Hyderabad, India, on December 3 last year.
