Trivia Night 2011

Westgarth Baseball Club Trivia Night 2011   Westgarth would like to thank everyone who attended the Westgarth Baseball Club Trivia Night in July. A special thanks goes out to all those who helped make it such a success including Richelle for all her hard work and effort, Marshy for running the night and keeping everyone under control, Carey and Trevor (marmalade) behind the bar and the rest of the committee who were involved. I think most would agree Marshy's selection of topics were satisfactory with the inclusion of enough Star Wars questions to make George Lucas proud. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves with enough variety to ensure all were able to get involved and only ONE baseball question, unless you count the tricky picture of Billy Crystal in a Yankees uniform. There were certainly some difficult questions in the bunch like who wouldn't have thought Gary Pawley was the largest primate on earth. The fast pace made it difficult for teams to look up answers on ... More
