2021 H2R Team Quiz Challenge

22 August 2021 – (The Thursday before the nationwide Level 4 lockdown)

It was great to see a full capacity turnout of 150 people at the 2021 Quiz night in the Ballroom at Fox Glove after a year of Covid lockdowns prevented the 2020 challenge from taking place.  It was a great atmosphere with fierce competition between the best brains in Wellington.  The 2021 Champions were Summerset aka “Our drinking team has a trivia problem” who finally broke The Treasury’s two year winning streak.  Summerset donated their $300 Good Registry Voucher to Kids Can.  Following close behind in second place were PAMU aka “Pamoo“, who donated their $200 Good Registry Voucher to the Mental Health Foundation.  Bringing up the tail end were Heritage Lifecare’s “League of Extraordinary Guessors” who donated their $100 voucher to the SPCA.  Most Creative team name went to “Show me the Monet” (Ministry of Education).
