Quiz Night- 15 December 2022
Another successful Quiz Night, as you can view on this view here.
Allowing Akira to bank just over €300, despite the effect of Christmas travel, meant that we had just 8 teams compared to the 15 participating last time. Despite that, Derek and Barbara ensured a number of really testing questions (and some not so much), frequently Christmas-themed – though perhaps it was a bit unfair to throw a series of questions on the words to common Christmas carols at our Dutch friends, who came up with their own lyrics, all revolving around the theme “La, La, La”.
Christina Rene used the opportunity to announce an expansion plan for the Akira Dog Sanctuary in Benissa. We have the approval to utilise the land surrounding the sanctuary, which will allow the resident dogs much more freedom than they enjoy at present, but which will entail considerable investment, with a target set of €50,000. She encouraged support for two schemes, the Tree of Hope, on show at the Moraira shop, and a crowd-funding plan called Akira’s Angels, details available at https://akira-angels.org.
The results of the quiz showed the Dutchies carrying all above them again, but a very sporting performance overall. Not much to choose between second and fourth, but the podium places went to Fab Four, third and Calpinos second. The clear winners were Moonpig.com. Congratulations are due to all who took part.
The raffle was again a success, particularly in view of the reduced number of participants in the evening. Thanks are due to all those offering prizes for us.
Thanks again to Derek and Barbara for stimulating our minds and to Gary and his team for stimulating our bodies at the fantastic venue Hill Top Sports Bar & Grill.
We have decided to hold Quiz Night on the last Thursday of each month, which makes the next outing on January 26th. Please mark your diaries accordingly.
