Our Pioneers’ Trivia Night on Thursday 6 March was well attended by locals keen to showcase their general knowledge. The four rounds of quiz questions were prepared and delivered by Susan Buck who was ably assisted by Ian and Greg checking the answers and tallying the scores.
All the questions were on Australian history and general knowledge and the forth round was themed on Central Coast identities, history and local knowledge. Our seven teams studied the quiz sheet and put their heads together to find the answers to questions such as:
What year did Matthew Flinders circumnavigate the Australian continent?
What was the name of Matthew Flinders’ cat?
Where is the National Holden Motor Museum?
List the names of the Central Coast railway stations on the line from south to north.
Some of the questions were quite a challenge, but everyone went home with their minds full of fun facts and local knowledge.
Thank you to our generous local businesses for their support and donating Lucky Door Prizes: Gary Gavenlock, Leone Frame, Luka Chocolates, Gennaro’s Italian Restaurant at the Grand Hotel, Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon, the Royal Hotel, Legends Bakery, Gold Racquet Restaurant and Club Wyong.
