Virtual Table Quiz proves a big hit

Thanks to everyone who supported our fundraising Virtual Table Quiz on Friday night 2nd April, which was conducted using Zoom. Fifty teams had entered but some doubled up on the night thanks to the wonders of modern technology, so nearly forty teams and groups took part, drawn from the four corners of the County and beyond, and we even had an entry from England. Congratulations to the winners, in particular Pat Muldoon’s team who scored a whopping 98 points out of 100. Special thanks to Michael O’Sullivan for his customary eclectic mix of questions that provided great entertainment as always for everyone. Doing a virtual table quiz was quite a novel experience and when the answer sheet was completed for each round, each team had only a limited time to send a photo by WhatsApp to Philip Burke and Clare O’Donnell who did Trojan work in the background checking and scoring everyone’s sheets, which was quite a task with so many sheets to check; this type of selfless support is what makes Mullingar Harriers the great Club that it is. We had so many generous donations of spot prizes that while it wasn’t quite one for everyone in the audience, we could give a spot prize to half the teams, which is always a nice bonus. The proceeds of the quiz will go towards the new all-weather track.
