Team Probus are winners!

Probus Westbury rose to the challenge and entered two teams in the Rotary Club’s annual quiz night held on Friday evening at the Laverton. 

They report, “Under the Team Probus banner our two teams were The Young Ones and The Bright Ones. This exceptionally well-run quiz was divided into ten gruelling rounds of varied questions.

“Both our Probus teams went head to head and The Bright Ones took the competition lead when they played their bonus card early in the quiz. In the final round, The Young Ones played their bonus card on the Pot Luck round.

“Scoring heavily and having their round score doubled, The Young Ones finally overtook their Team Probus colleagues and were declared overall winners of the quiz – by 1 point! The Bright Ones coming second. Well done Team Probus! It was a great evening and thank you  Rotary for inviting us.
