Table Quiz, in aid of MDI, Wednesday 11 July

4:46 pm General, home, running

Fancy yourself as a smartypants who knows everything there is to know about everything? Could you name all the cities who have had two or more soccer teams win a European club tournament? Or name the artist and song that kept “Penny Lane” and “Strawberry Fields Forever” off the number one spot in the UK in 1967? Can you name the flower found on the Hong Kong flag? Will you be in Lyon on July 11th?

I’m organising a table quiz next week, Wednesday 11 July, to raise funds for Muscular dystrophy Ireland in advance of running the 6000D in three weeks time (eek!). So far, mostly because of my injury, work and training commitments, fundraising has been slow – but with the race approaching we’re heading full steam ahead, and I’m once again asking for your support and donations.

For those of you who are not in Lyon next week, you are cordially invited to Johnny’s Kitchen, 48 rue Saint Georges, in Vieux Lyon, for a quiz in aid of this cause. There will be a raffle on the night, and the owner is donating €1 for any drinks sold to quiz attendees. Doors open at 8pm, and we’ll kick off the quiz around 8.30. Entry is €3 per person, and all proceed go directly to MDI.

For those of you who can’t be there next week, you can also donate online! We’ve collected almost €700 to date, and I’m hoping to reach €1500 by the time of the race.

Thanks everyone for your support!

    For those wondering about the answers:

    Cities who have had 2 or more teams win a European club football competition (I’m counting European Cup, Cup Winner’s Cup and UEFA Cup):
    * Milan
    * Madrid
    * Belgrade
    * London
    * Manchester
    * Liverpool
    * Glasgow

    The artist and song that kept Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever off #1 was Engelbert Humperdink’s “Release Me”.

    And the flower on the Hong Kong flag is an orchid – specifically, Bauhinia blakeana, but I’ll accept “orchid”).
