The popular Braidie's Rotary Trivia Night is back, after being another event forced into a COVID-induced hiatus last year.

As a consequence of the pandemic, however, there are changes to how people get involved.

Rotarian Karen Tapscott said there can be no rolling up on the night to be put into a team. Teams of eight must pre-book a table, and under the event's COVID plan there's a limit of just 13 tables.

"We usually have 26 tables, or more," Mrs Tapscott said.

Therefore it's imperative that participants organise into teams now and be ready to secure their table when tickets go on sale at 9am this Monday, May 3 at trybooking.com/BQRDN. Tickets are $65 per table.

The big night is Saturday, May 29 again at the Tenterfield Golf Club.

Mrs Tapscott said the format will be similar to that of past years, although there may have to be an adjustment of the games played. Still there will be plenty of great prizes, raffles and brainteasers on offer.

There will also be prizes for the best dressed table and best dressed individual, so start thinking of a team theme.

Questions will again be composed by John Tapscott, overseen by Christine Denis. It pays to build a team comprised of people with a variety of strengths and areas of interest, but the overall aim is a fun night out.

Food is BYO or can be ordered from the club restaurant.

Braidie's Trivia Night (named in honour of past quizmaster Graham Braid and his commitment to Rotary and Tenterfield) is a fundraiser for Youth Driver Awareness Training, supporting Tenterfield High School students to attend Driver Awareness and Driver Training Courses in Tamworth and Willowbank.
