"We had a great turnout with 18 teams participating," says Sharlene Valance, Fundraiser for the ABF. "The teams came well prepared and were served delicious fare from Filet Signature Cut restaurant. We extend our congratulations to Times Media and our thanks to Incredible Connection and Tsogo Sun for their generous prize sponsorship.
The quizmaster, Gavin Taylor, surprised the gathering with a cross-section of questions from geography to literature. No cell phones were allowed and fines were handed out if anyone was caught cheating.
