There were around 60 people who went along to the Red Ribbon Restaurant in Karakum to take part in the music and entertainment quiz which had been arranged in aid of Hope 4 Pets and what a great evening it was.
The quizmaster was Mick who did a great job and he was ably assisted by DJ Ozzie who supplied the music sections for the quiz and also some background music during the evening while we were tucking into the buffet laid on by Red Ribbon. In all there were 40 questions covering a range of music, film and entertainment and this was split into 20 for the first half and 20 for the second half following a break for people to order their drinks etc. before continuing.
Bill and Stephanie Harrison-Croft joined us at our table so we were a team of 5. Although we didn’t win, as not being regular “quizzers”, we felt we did reasonably well with 28 out of 40 questions. It was a bit frustrating as with some of the questions we should have known the answers but couldn’t recall names etc. Maybe an age thing!
During the interval there was a raffle draw with some nice prizes being won. Then came the second half and more questions. It was a really good evening with a lot of laughter and enjoyment.
Hope 4 Pets were pleased to announce that they had made 2,725TL for their fund from the evening, a great amount towards the work they do for the stray and abandoned dogs and cats of North Cyprus.
