To celebrate our sponsorship of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, we joined with other Melbourne 2006 sponsors, Hudson and PricewaterhouseCoopers, for the Brains behind the Games Trivia Quiz.
Corporate rivalry was fierce at the Brains behind the Games grand final trivia evening, held at PricewaterhouseCooper's Freshwater Place offices on Tuesday, 15 November 2005.
Thirty teams of four members battled it out to be crowned Australia's best corporate brains. A wide range of industries were represented by trivia teams, including law, accounting, retail, telecommunications, government departments, consulting and journalism.
Trivia master Alan Lovett, from Melbourne Trivia, put together an entertaining program, which included questions on songs, movies, Commonwealth Games trivia, Australiana, sport and general knowledge.
Special guests included diver Loudy Tourky, an Olympic medallist and national champion, Rosie Hooper, an articled clerk at Allens Arthur Robinson who hopes to compete for Australia in the javelin event at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, and Karak, the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games mascot.
The winning team on the night (with a total score of 79 points) was the Gen-Y Values, who won tickets to the athletics finals at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games.
The Four Amigos came a close second with 77 points and Clutz finished third on 76 points.
