Ms Lesley Gaigher, organiser of the Louis Trichardt SPCA’s annual trivia evening held on 19 April, writes:
The Louis Trichardt SPCA and Mountain Inn Country Hotel presented the 2018 Trivia Night, and man oh man, did we have fun! The evening was very well attended, with not a single vacant chair in the house.
We have so many people to thank for making this fantastic event the massive success that it was. Please bear with me while I run through my list:
* My amazing colleagues – Thank you for always standing by me, even when I turn into a bull terrier. I am honoured to work beside you. Your hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed! As Greg Leach said at the event, our SPCA has become an anomaly - a happy place!
* Vicki Ann Richardson and Dennis from Mountain Inn Country Hotel for their generosity and kind hearts - we appreciate it more than we can ever say!
* Greg Leach, our MC for the evening. The man who would've invented the bikini, if someone else did not think of it first. All jokes aside, you did a stellar job – again! Thanks Leachy, and of course - Hazel Leach, his darling, patient wife - you're a treat!
* Estelle and Hendrik Kemp for the first prize (one night for four persons at the lovely Nyala Lodge).
* All the businesses that offered us coupons as prizes, including Seisoene Gift Shop, Salon Lu-iz, Tsonga Textiles, Noorde Wapens, Daphne Calitz (Daphne's Hair Salon) and Pit Stop Liquor.
* Stephan Gaigher (G & A Heritage) for the four bottles of wine for Best team Name prize
* Pierre and Alicia Thomas (La Montagne Farm) for the four (BIG) packets of Macadamia Nuts for the You guys are Nuts prize
* Blouberg Animal Clinic for the Grooming Voucher as Class Clown prize.
* And lastly, but definitely not the least, ALL our participants, namely the Agora Terriers (defending champions), Kaptein Sardyn and the Misfits (winner vegetarian dinner), Les Quizerables, Awesome Foursome, Hoof Hearted (best name ever!), Titanic Swim Squad, Zout Mafia, Gatjieponders (Google it … I also had to), Not Fast, Just Furious, Helping Hands (Ridgeway College Team), J3, Wiskeypedia, Top Cats, John Trivialta (also, a great name!), The Realty Runs, Mambo Jumbo, Witty Halfwits, Intelligent Pelicans, Funkey Monkeys, Ramble in the Jungle and Quizzeds of Oz.
You guys rocked! Hope to see you all again next year.
