Northern Ireland Dressage (N.I.D.) enjoyed a highly successful and enjoyable fundraising quiz night on Tuesday 25th November at The Pheasant, Hillsborough.
The evening generated a wave of support: the sheer volume of members that attended the evening was outstanding. This is the second year running that the committee has held the successful event.
The bar was packed and the competition fierce with more than fifteen teams battling it out. The quiz master, John McKee, tested the teams’ knowledge in a vast array of subjects, with eight rounds in total. An equestrian round was, of course, included! A supper was provided by the committee and drinks at the bar, were enjoyed by all present.
In between fighting the battle to be crowned the winning team, there was a raffle and an auction for a deluxe dinner for six, cooked and hosted by judge, Ivor Harper and his team. All were in awe of Ivor’s generosity as he not only offered to cook a dinner for the winning bidders, but also to the under-bidders! The dinner not only promises to be a gourmet affair but also includes full table service and canapés.
At the denouement of the evening, it was Ivor’s team who also won the quiz title! (Pictured below.) However, it was not without a fight as another team were hot on their heels and a ‘Sudden Death’ round had to be held to decide the NID Quiz Champions 2014.
The evening was an enduring success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone present. The committee hope that members and their friends continue to support future events and thank all who attended. The support and generosity is always much appreciated. Thanks to The Pheasant for hosting this fabulous event, John McKee, Ivor and his team, and the committee for all of their hard work in organising such a successful event.
