Kiwanis Trivia Night at the Field House brought out the brightest and the best to test thier wits. The quizz masters challenged the seven teams with 100 questions that ended the evening with a three way tie. The tie breaking 5 question round (like a shoot out in hockey) left the Quizicles going home with the hardware (actually plasticware) and more importantly the bragging rights. Congratulations to Ron and Kate Lloyd, Malcolm and Debbie Montgomery and Peter and Cherylee Leigh.
