GHS gets quizzy

The Rep - - ROUND & ABOUT -

ON a cold win­ter’s night, what could be nicer than some hearty soup, sweet sherry, fun lucky draw prizes, great com­pany and vibey tunes?

Last Fri­day, the third an­nual Round Ta­ble quiz at the Queen­stown Golf Club was another great night out with some very chal­leng­ing ques­tions and a lot of com­mu­nity spirit. Af­ter 12 rounds in­clud­ing cat­e­gories such as Zoomed In (with close-up photos of ev­ery­day ob­jects to iden­tify), Celebrity Part­ners, Tech­nol­ogy, So­cial Media and Mu­sic, the de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons, GHS, once again beat the other 16 teams.

The se­cret to their suc­cess this year seemed to lie in the fact that three English teach­ers were in their team and they earned an im­pres­sive 18 points in the Literature round. Sec­ond place was se­cured by the team Re- turn of 8 Mates who gave GHS a good fight (un­til the literature round). Char­teris and Barnes, who al­ways score well in this event, came in third.

Round Ta­ble thank all the play­ers and spon­sors who par­tic­i­pated. Con­venor Julie de Bruyn said, “What a great way to raise funds, while at the same time hav­ing fun and keep­ing friends en­ter­tained!”

Just for fun, here are a few of the ques­tions that fea­tured. (An­swers at the end.)

1. Sport: Due to su­per­sti­tion, what did Bjorn Borg avoid do­ing dur­ing the Wim­ble­don fort­night?

2. Slo­gans: Iden­tify the brand as­so­ci­ated with this slo­gan: How can we help you?

3. World events: Many males in­volved in the arts were cas­trated in Europe dur­ing the 17th and 18th cen­turies. What was the rea­son?

4. Gen­eral knowl­edge: What Ja­panese word, used in the English lan­guage, means “empty or­ches­tra?”

An­swers: 1. shave, 2. FNB, 3. To have a singing voice in a higher vo­cal range, 4. Karaoke.
