Chris and the kids that helped out
There is absolutely no doubting it… KR KITE CLUB has the best and most fun members of any club in the world!
Now, unfortunately after completion of the July 2012 Trivia Night I can categorically say we are not the smartest people on the planet, but no doubt at all on the fun side!
In July, one of Melbourne’s coldest months of the year, 92 people from 3 years old right through to (hmmm, that’s a hard one, and I don’t know the answer) about 60’ish years old came along to have fun, get involved, challenge their knowledge (both kite based and regular) and raise money for Beyond Blue and Earthcare St Kilda, two great charities that do a fantastic job in their respective fields.
The night started well with the REPUBLICA St Kilda Beach staff working flat out behind the bar and in the kitchen, the Kahuna Street SUP Gang working flat out selling raffle tickets and handing around answer sheets, and the usual warm and welcoming friendly buzz of KR KITE CLUB members sharing their latest thrills and spills from recent (chilly) sessions!
Chris kicking off Round 3!
A special mention has to go out to Steve and Lee who made the trip up from the Penisula the night before they jetted off to Aitutaki, and also to Dylan and Maz who made the trip up from Sommers, we’ve missed you two!
The night went off without a hitch… (other than an 11 year old winning a slab of Peroni donated from Luke at CUB, oops!) the kids were fantastic at helping out between rounds, Sarah Cheeseman and Craig Brandie were outstanding Quizmasters, Adam Trumble was outstanding with scoring and getting all the questions together, and the team at REPUBLICA (although clearly not to bright… J) provided us with the outstanding service they are known for.
The Kite Republic Junior Team!
