Over 90 members and guests making 12 teams gathered in the Harbour Room, and with team captains issued with distinctive caps and gavels - the Annual Clash of Minds was on.
Little Red Riding Hood, aka Charley (now official guardian of the Trivia Trophy) was ably supported by "Boobs" Ryan and "Legs" Pedler.
"Legs" and "Boobs" dominated the room taking no back talk from the pedants by threatening to deduct double points in case of protest.
Questions ranges from aerodynamic / nautical (answer: "Lift and Drag") through geographic (“Western Australia’) to classic comedy (“Abbott & Costello”…no, not Australian politics!).
After 6 rounds of trivia plus extras the defending team "Phantom" with 67 points held on for victory over "Sugoi" (former "Bushido" team) on 65 with runners up Trivia Newton-John on 63.
Paul Bartley (Bartley Marine Services) kindly donated the raffle prize of a jacket with the $587 proceeds going towards the Quest Cadet Dinghy replacement fund.
foodanddesire donated wine prizes and merchandise provided by Australian Women’s Keelboat Committee and RMYS.
Thanks also to Jan and the Office Team for dealing with the bookings and last minute changes as well as fielding a team.
Another great night - see you there next year!!
Chappy for MSC
