15 top notch four-person teams took part in our first virtual Quiz Night on the evening of 24 March to raise funds for our charity partners. Over six rounds of tough questions, intellectual battle was commenced and the eventual winners – by just one point – were the ‘Brain Drain again’ team.
Stuart Cummings was our quizmaster for the night with Lilian Eilers providing technical support at the Zoom controls to shuffle the various teams in and out of their Breakout rooms.
The six rounds covered Geography, Science and Nature, Arts and Literature, Food and Drink, History, and a final Music Round.
The 15 teams represented the broad nature of the BBCA community with teams from our four charities: the Community Help Service (CHS), the British Charitable Fund (BCF), the Wednesday Club with two teams from the Royal British Legion. Two teams were also fielded by the Brussels Women’s Club, and one team from the Royal Brussels British Football Club who were the eventual winners: Brain Drain Again!
15 teams was the maximum for practical and technology reasons, so our apologies to those who tried to get involved after entry had to close.
Prizes for the winning team – in the form of shopping vouchers – were provided by our friends at Stonemanor. Our Events sub-committee led by Nikki Hayes also provided ‘thank you’ gifts to Stuart and Lilian.
And our thanks to all involved. The evening was great fun, and we hope to repeat the event – or something similar – in the not-too-distant future!
