Cobh Lions Club holds Annual Table Quiz next Thursday in aid of the Lourdes Group

By Alan Sheehan


Cobh Lions Club will hold its Annual Table Quiz next week on Thursday, 27 April in aid of the Lourdes Group.
The Annual Table Quiz will be hosted by Rushbrooke Tennis Club and begins at 8pm sharp. A table of four costs €40 with all proceeds going towards the Lourdes Group in Cobh.
“It starts at 8pm sharp,” said Orla Flaven of Cobh Lions club. “It is €40 for a table of four, but we try to keep the tables to four people if possible so it works out at €10 a head. Our emcee is Lions member Anna Hamilton. People don’t need to pre-book. They can just show up on the night. We always welcome new faces.”
The table quiz features prizes for the winning teams which will generally be split between the four members, as well as a raffle and spot prizes. The winning prizes will have to be earned; smartphone use during the quiz is frowned upon.
“There are no phones allowed during the quiz,” said Ms Flaven. “We want to keep it old school. Table quizzes are kind of dying off across the board because it is so easy to use a smartphone to cheat. We would go around and ask people before the quiz not to use phones and to engage their brains instead.”
