Trustpower take Tauranga ICT quiz title for 2016



It was a full house last night for the 10th annual ICT Cluster Quiz Night, with 19 teams battling it out for the ‘2016 Quiz Champions’ crown at the Tauranga Yacht and Power Boat Club.

Competition was extremely fierce this year, with only half a point between the top two teams after six rounds of 10 questions each.  Trustpower’s Durham St Divas took out first place for the second year in a row, narrowly followed by Vision Qubed, the team from Qube Global Software (previously known as Vision Software).  Third place went to Trumpmageddon, the team from Tauranga Tech, who took part for the first time this year.

Interestingly, Trustpower have placed in the top three places for the last four years, and Qube Global Software have placed in the top three spots a massive seven times over 10 years.  You need to be there to realise how significant this is as the questions are really difficult!  For this we can thank our wonderful Quiz Master, Nick Baker, who manages to inject much humour into seemingly unknowable subjects.  Also a big thank you to Anne Pankhurst, who rules the roost as the perfect Quiz Mistress with equal measures of fun and fear!

To those teams that took part, it was great to see you last night.  If you couldn’t make it this year, we look forward to you coming along in 2017.  This event was sponsored by Priority One.
