Auckland Transportation Group Quiz Night!

We invite you to form a team with your colleagues and battle it out against your fellow transport group members to decisively determine Auckland’s smartest transport team.  Last year was a great success with 13 teams and around 90 participants. Ideally we are looking for company/organisation teams of between 4 – 10 people. If you are an independent then please let us know and we will team you up with others in a similar position as we did last year.

When: Wednesday 15 August, 5.30 – 9.30pm
Venue: The Paddington, 117 St George’s Bay Road, Parnell, Auckland

The event is free and the winning team will be awarded a $100 bar tab plus the honour of winning and all the associated bragging rights entailed therein.

The committee will sponsor nibbles, and a free drink for the first 20 people through the door. The Paddington will be running the quiz for us and it will be in the normal format.

Team registration closes on Tuesday 7 August at 5pm.  Please provide details of Team Name, Organisation, and the number of team members so to allow us to plan for catering.
