The CAFT Quiz Night 2023

 

We kicked off our 2023 fundraising calendar of events with a night of quizzing! On Thursday 23rd March, over 80 people joined us at Bowdon RUFC Marquee Room, playing in teams of 5 to 7.

We had a great night that raised a wonderful amount of £3,164!

The Questions

Quiz host Peter Scotson from Happy Radio took us through the following 7 rounds of 10 questions alongside a Marathon round to complete throughout the evening.

  1. General Knowledge
  2. How Observant Are You
  3. Colours in Sport
  4. News & Events
  5. Geography
  6. Up, Up, Up & Away (Aeroplane Tail Markings)
  7. Children’s Television

The News questions were asked by BBC newsreader Roger Johnson and Children’s Television by actor John Thompson in pre-recorded videos.

Teams could also double their points in one round only by using their Joker card – with some bagging 20 points in a round, whilst others not picking their round so wisely!

  1. Bogota is the capital of which South American country?
  2. On the London Underground logo, what background colour is the station name?
