Ki­wis try for big­gest quiz

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

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.
