ABCC Quiz Night “Entreteni-Mentes 2012”


The 11th ABCC Quiz Night “Entreteni-mentes 2012” organised by the Olivos & La Lucila District with the help of the North Riverside District took place on Saturday June 16th at St.Andrews Scots School Punta Chica.

A turn out of 220 participants, grouped together in teams, had to enjoyably rack their brains to answer the questions which were both in English and Spanish.  This year the Quiz was very kindly designed, put together, and worked, by Ricardo Livschitz, who introduced a system by which the answers were made using an Interactive voting  system using a Keypad at each table.  The questions were projected on the screen placed on the centre of the stage, the smart looking Masters of Ceremony Mr Ian Gall and Mr Jorge Gandolfo would read out the questions, then the Multiple Choice answers would appear and 10 seconds would be given to answer the question by pressing the corresponding number on the Key pad. The quiz consisted of 3 rounds of questions which dealt with Current Affairs, Sports, Celebrities, General Knowledge Music and Films.   

During the intervals empanadas, cookies and drinks were sold at the bar manned by the committee members of both Districts.

The winning team of the night was "Go West": Monica, Martin & Daniel Westerdahl, Sorrel Moseley Williams, Georgina Guardinelli, Michael & Lorraine Soltys, Annie Guedes, and Allan Kelin, who proudly walked off with their golden chocolate medals and prizes.   "Los DeMentes": Sandra & Marcelo Graca, Michelle & Karin Roberts,  Ivonne & Alan Roberts, and Juan Pablo Hendricksen came in second and collected their silver chocolate medals and prizes. The door prize was won by Claire Hufnagel.

Congratulations to all and thank you!
