The Somerset Rowing Committee hosted another successful Trivia Night in the Great Hall on Friday night with the Somerset community getting behind the event.

It was great to see the crowd participate in the Trivia 50’s themed night with the winners going to two tables of Junior School parents led by Jodi Hunt the Pink Ladies certainly rocked it. The Trivia winners of the night came down to a tie with the teachers table organised by Corina Jeflea and one of Justine Cirocco’s tables comprising of the Lakis, Jacksons, Rostas, Marks and Chesters. After a tightly contested paper aeroplane competition between Venita Rostas and Tom Betts, the teachers took away the wining honour, congratulations.

The Trivia Night is a major fundraiser for the College rowers with proceeds going towards purchasing boats, oars and other equipment for the rowers. Thanks to the generosity of the Somerset College business community and the rowing families, there were fantastic prizes from stays at the Sheraton Grand Mirage Resort, Chemist Warehouse Vouchers and Baskets, Fireshaper Voucher, SILK Laser Clinic Voucher, the many fabulous baskets from the Strong’s, accommodation from the Daly’s and the Tasmania’s Central Highlands accommodation form the Butlers. Thanks to all those who purchased the great auction items, the night raised many thousands of dollars, which will go to providing more equipment for the rowers.

I would like to extend a massive thank you to the Rowing President Simon Strong and the Rowing Committee who assisted with the excellent organisation of the night.
