The Rotary Club of Roundhay recently hosted its 28th annual quiz night, a beloved tradition that brings together community members for an evening of camaraderie and friendly competition. Held on Saturday, March 9th, this year’s event saw over 100 participants forming 13 teams, all vying for the coveted title of quiz champions.

The quiz, a highlight of the club’s calendar, comprised five rounds of challenging questions covering a wide range of topics, from history and geography to pop culture and current events. In addition, participants tested their observational skills with a picture round, adding an extra layer of excitement to the competition.

As the quiz progressed, tensions ran high, with the top three teams neck and neck, separated by just a single point (96, 96 and 95). In a thrilling finale, the top two teams found themselves in a tiebreaker round, where they battled it out for victory. Ultimately, it was a nail-biting finish, showcasing the fierce competition and impressive knowledge of all involved.

However, the night was not just about the quiz; it was also an opportunity for attendees to enjoy delicious food and drinks. The cost of tickets included snacks on the tables and a hot cooked meal served at the halfway interval. Guests could choose between a sumptuous vegetarian curry or a hearty meat bolognese, catering to all dietary preferences. To complement the meal, a paying bar was available, offering a selection of beer, wine, and prosecco, adding to the festive atmosphere of the evening.

Beyond the quiz and refreshments, the event also featured a raffle, with club members and generous donors contributing a variety of prizes. From gift baskets to vouchers for local businesses, the raffle proved to be a popular attraction, raising an impressive £540 on the night. Overall, the event raised £1641 after expenses. These funds will support the Rotary Club of Roundhay’s ongoing charitable efforts and community initiatives, further demonstrating the impact of events like the annual quiz night.

None of this would have been possible without the dedication and hard work of many volunteers who generously gave their time to plan, organize, and run the event. From setting up the venue to preparing food, serving guests, and compiling materials for the quiz, their contributions were instrumental in ensuring the night’s success.

In the end, the 28th annual quiz night hosted by the Rotary Club of Roundhay was not only a fun-filled and memorable occasion but also a testament to the power of community spirit and collective effort. As participants departed with fond memories, they eagerly anticipated the next instalment of this beloved tradition, already looking forward to another year of challenging questions, friendly rivalry, and good cheer.
