Our Annual Curry Quiz Night took place on the 30th September where quiz fans gathered together for an evening at the Singapore Indian Association.
The fundraising event was jointly organised by the Lighthouse Club and Society of Construction Law (Singapore) to raise money for our beneficiaries. The event was a sell-out weeks before and had over 60 people attending, raising a total of $2000. Both organisations are proud that the synergy between our respective memberships continue to contribute strongly to a worthy cause.
We had the pleasure of having Mr Sid Bhalla as the Quiz Master for the evening. There were 5 categories – literature, general knowledge, geography, 70s and music. Sid did a great job of keeping the scores for the 8 teams and it was a close fight between the top 2 teams. Some of the younger team members may have muttered about the retro bias behind a number of questions but there were equally befuddling queries for the older crowd in having to decipher the names of Hip Hop artists amongst others. Participants were also treated to a buffet of Indian delights and drinks including the famous Mutton Curry courtesy of the Singapore Indian Association. Children kept themselves busy with colouring as a Kids Colouring competition was held while the adults put on their thinking caps. Your authors looked at each other quizzically when trying to remember the mind behind "Dr Zhivago" as well as the construction dates of dubious motorways in rural England.
We are delighted to announce that the 3rd place went to Team Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, winning 2 Nox Dine in the Dark Vouchers and 2 Masters Football tickets. 2nd place went to Team Tigers who received 4 bottles of wine. Last but not least, the Winner for the 2017 Lighthouse Curry Quiz went to Team Dublin Down – Put a Cork in it, taking home 8 Nox Dine in the Dark vouchers. All of us went home winners though after a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
The Lighthouse Club Singapore and Society of Construction Law (Singapore) would like to thank everybody who got involved in the fun and for donating generously throughout the night. Both organisations look forward to the next edition of the Quiz Night and to more fellow members joining in the fun.
