Participants rallied to the theme “fast and fun” at Quota’s trivia night for the Bluewater Dragons, held at Club Narooma on 17 August. The vice-president of the Bluewater Dragons, Donna Anderson said, “We are not always fast, but we do have lots of fun.”
She thanked the Quota club for hosting the event and noted that funds raised will help the dragon-boaters purchase safety equipment.
The “Neighbours” team of Carol Hodges, Marie Small, July Vaca, Alan Redenbach, Margaret Hayward, Helen Stebbing and Amy Adcock inched past their nearest rivals to claim first place. They generously donated their $100 prize to the Bluewater Dragons.
The trivia night was well supported by dragon-boat enthusiasts who had fun creating “squiggles” to reflect the evening’s theme. Many beautiful dragons were drawn, but the winner was produced by Table 4, whose members included John Steele, Jenny Troy, Amanda Doust, Allison Steele, Terry Troy, Wayne Mullavey, Judy Whiting and John Whiting.
In the spirit of evening, the Quota club opted to award a prize for good sportsmanship to the last-place team, which consisted of young participants Leeanne Corbett, Shannon Hall, Sarah Hall and Taylah Hall. Theirs was one of the only teams able to answer the question, “In which sport would you perform an ollie?” The answer, by the way, is skateboarding.
The winner of the huge vegie and fruit platter from Dalmeny IGA was Sue Fahey.
Quota’s next trivia night will be held on 16 November for the Animal Welfare League.
