Li­brary Trivia Quiz draws many teams

Bush Telegraph - - NEWS - By DAVE MUR­DOCH

With ques­tions rang­ing from Which Su­per­hero was known as the man of steel? (Su­per­man) to Who is the only fe­male char­ac­ter in the Win­nie the Pooh books? (Kanga) there were plenty of which, who, when, what and why ques­tions in the An­nual Tararua Li­brary Trivia Quiz held Wed­nes­day evening Septem­ber 5.

Dan­nevirke had the most num­ber of teams with 12, but Eketa¯ huna had 11 teams and Woodville 8, the two Pahiatua teams go­ing to their neigh­bours.

All three li­braries were linked by com­puter so com­peti­tors could see the scores ev­ery three rounds.

The teams were lib­er­ally sup­plied with snacks for the three hours of the con­test. Noone could peg back the Four Horse­men of the Potato Chip’s score of 64, the top Woodville score be­ing Last Minute (59) and Eketa¯ huna’s Krato and Co with 52.

Since 2009 when the quiz be­gan Three As­sets and a Li­a­bil­ity (MCI and As­so­ci­ates) have won five times but Four Horse­men and the Potato Chips are catch­ing up with three. Re­sults are only a by-prod­uct of the fun.
