Tuesday 11th April was the date for the 1st MABS Calasparra Cancer Charity Quiz of the year. Over 40 contestants took to their tables for a bit of fun, test their knowledge and hopefully come away the winners.

After a misty start to the day, in lovely afternoon sunshine for a few hours, there were questions in the first part of the Quiz, on Animals, Transport, Food & Drink and TV Themes, all with a musical element to the questions.

After the Raffle with an amazing amount of Prizes – thank you to everyone who contributed – the 2nd part of the Quiz had questions on Books, Art, Multi Choice and James Bond.

With a Quizmaster who was a bit rusty after the winter break, there were plenty of reminders from the Quizzers to bring him up to date on which question was due!!! It seemed to be an enjoyable afternoon with the eventual winners being the Scrambled Egg Heads from Coto Rinales – winning a bag of 4 Cadburys Creme Eggs for EACH member of the Team.

The Booby Prize (for coming last) went to a deserving team called Piston N Broke – an all-male team who at least came along to take part and for their effort received a Creme Egg each.

The total amount raised was 315€ – a great amount and MABS would like to thank all those who volunteered to help in the afternoon, but especially the people who came along to make up the Teams and contributed to that amount through entry fee and Raffle ticket purchases.

MABS’ next event is a Race Day at La Plaza Restaurant, Calasparra on Monday 8th May at 2.30pm at a cost of 20€.
