Nights or Trivia Nights can be good fun and a great way to raise money for schools, social clubs, charity and sporting bodies. These groups, and many others, provide an invaluable service in our community and Ray is proud to offer his support when it comes to fundraising. Ray, who has many years experience organizing and running quiz nights … will MC, provide all questions and answers and help conduct other fund raising activities on the night. This community service is free but please book early as availability of dates and times are limited.
Choose your venue early and lock it in, remembering the most suitable night of the week for a Quiz night is Saturday.
If your group doesn’t have a venue, you can hire school halls, council halls or a local sporting club facility for a reasonable rate. This is always a tough one but establish a fee that will encourage as many people as possible to turn up on the night rather than frighten them off because of high costs. Make sure the starting time is adhered to; waiting for latecomers can be frustrating for others and leaves less time for fundraising activities. Prior to starting, ask all teams to write down the total number of questions they think they will get right for the entire night on the upper right hand corner of the round 1 score sheet. Quiz night questions should be designed so that at least 80 per cent of the questions will be answered correctly and they should cover a wide range of topics.
Do not spend a large amount of time in between questions, 45 seconds to 1 minute should be enough.


Make sure you announce the decision of the judges or MC is final, you don’t want to waste time arguing about answers.
The bottle coin toss is a lot of fun and players get very competitive, adding to the night’s financial windfall.
Establish a line for contestants to stand behind to toss their coin and place the prize at a suitable distance. You should remove all but the closest coin during the game to make it easier to track who is winning and to avoid money going missing. Just before one of the quiz rounds the MC asks people to stand and place a coin on the table to play the game. It is easier to encourage teams to dress up (fancy dress) and get them to decorate their own tables. Don’t spend too much; the trick to good fundraising is to encourage local people or businesses to donate the prizes. If there are a lot of other things happening, cut it back to eight questions for each round. If you offer a good donated prize, even a carton of beer and a bottle of wine, you will find most people keen to get involved.
A bottle of Jack Daniels, or other good quality bottle of spirits, is placed on the floor and whoever gets their gold coin closest to the bottle wins. Make sure you clarify rules including whether the coin must land in front of the prize to count and whether it is allowed to deflect off furniture or walls.


At least sixty (depending on Quiz Night numbers) small prizes are displayed on stage or on a table with numbers attached to them. Each bought lifeline entitles the team to a correct answer to a question of their choosing. Good luck and Ray hopes you raise lots of money on the night so that your group or organization can carry on the good work.
Chose a theme such as 60’s, beach, movies or superheroes and give a prize for best-dressed team or table. Fast food, electrical retailers, hardware stores and cinema chains are usually very generous.
In the event of a tie, the team that has scored the closest number of correct answers to their original estimate is declared the winner. Even have them letterbox their local neighbourhood and put a flyer on the community notice board at schools or shopping centres. Or you can use two coins and people can put both hands on their head or bottom or one of each.
