At our fourth annual quiz night, reigning champions “Four Men One Cup” fought off stiff competition to retain their trophy. They now have two cups and will have to change their name. For the second year running they also declined their cash prize, and we would like to publicly thank them for their generosity and congratulate them for their wit and intelligence.
A capacity crowd formed 12 teams, with five of the RRFC board represented in two of the teams; and first team squad members Kevin McHattie, Joel Coustrain, Yaw Osei and Andreas Thorsen forming another RRFC team along with goalkeeping coach Wayne Henderson.
Scoring was unbelievably close right until the end, with 3 points separating the top 4 teams after 10 rounds. The RRFC players almost lifted top prize, until an arithmetical error was uncovered on their scoresheet! The highlight of the quiz was the now infamous “career paths” round, although it was slightly less cryptic than in previous years.
The booby prize (aka The Jim Leishman Memorial Trophy) went home with a team from the local SNP constituency office. For some reason they seemed delighted with the prize.
A straining raffle table was cleared at the end of the night, with the proceeds contributing to a very healthy profit of £525 for the evening.
The board of the Raith Supporters Trust would like to thank everyone who attended, and also those who contributed raffle prizes. Thanks also to the team behind the bar in the Raith Suite, and last but definitely not least Steve Wallace for compiling the quiz and compering the event.
