5THE FM’s fifth annual music quiz night was held on Saturday 22nd March at the Soccer Club Rooms. Six tables vied for success to be 2014 champions. Teams of eight took the night seriously with competition high through out the night.
The Lane table started slow in round one with the Lucas table quick out of the starting gate, taking an early lead. The top three positions were stable with the Lowe team holding third place for the first few rounds but slipped to fourth after a particularly challenging round of ‘name that song’ after hearing only the first few bars. Pounsett team strode into third place and held that position with much needed bonus points in the point for knowledge verbal round.
Most played fair with only one ‘google’ warning issued by Quiz Master Don Lucas. ‘Help me Rhonda’ cards were used and sung by team leaders to gain additional information on several occassions.
A mystery raffle of 20 prizes was drawn through out the night and a sausage sizzle was ccoked by Allan and Bill, assisted by Pam and Kay. The raffle was sponsored by 5THE FM, Tony Egans Mensland, Millicent Newsagency and Beckonbees Honey.
The Lane team proved too strong, taking the lead after the first two rounds and took top honours for the third time in the history of the stations quiz night.
Ken Lane and friends won the first year , second year was won by Braes/McCourt team, third year Ken Lane again, and fourth year the Burchell team took out the honours but were unable to attend this year to protect their crown from the Lane table.
The quiz night is an annual fundraiser for 5THE FM.
