Trivia Night At Goomburra A Great Success
People came from far and wide for the 13th Goomburra Trivia Night making up 13 teams this year.
This is what the Goomburra Town Hall Committee had to say:
We thank you for answering our invitation to support our hall.
Melissa Gartery did a fantastic job as Trivia Wizard and MC for the night.
Local team ‘North Branch Road’ entered again to uphold their position as winning team from 2022 and was successful again in 2023.
Team ‘2 Smart 4 U’ came second keeping the Allora Landcare in the top three teams for the last 3 years. New to the scene were the ‘Nerd Burgers’ who came in third.
Our proceeds were bumped up for the night with the donations from “North Branch Road’ and “Nerd Burgers’ - thank you for donating your Prize money to the Hall.
This year the Clint Kenny and Properties Ruhle Wooden Spoon Prize was presented to ‘Harrum Scarum’ who have promised to attend in 2024 to pass on the actual wooden spoon that was engraved by Denieka Wolff and presented to the group by June Bool.
To add to the festivities of the night we celebrated the 117 year birthday of the hall.
The cake was cut by two of the longest standing Goomburra Town Hall volunteers – June Bool and John O’Brien (who was the MC and caller for 9 of the 13 Trivia Nights).
The crowd enjoyed the beautiful birthday cake made, decorated and donated by our local cake designer Denieka Wolff.
We thank Denieka and the many other volunteers who took the time to bake and donated products for the night.
GTH committee offer thanks to the following 2023 sponsors providing raffles, advertisement and products: Wild Sage, Allora Advertiser, Allora Barber Shop, Maryvale Crown Hotel, Highfields Produce, Allora Pharmacy, Goomburra Valley Campgrounds, Estelle Oloman, R & A Harris, Rose City FM, SH & MLD Gittins, T & J Elford and the Railway Hotel.
Allora Butchery made our night with the donation of the tasty chicken and beef sausages.
It is only with support from the community and businesses that events like this ensure the sustainability of the Goomburra Hall.
