Hi Pumas,

This is just a quick newsletter to mainly thank all who were involved & attended the Puma Adult Trivia/Disco last Saturday.

But before we get into that best we report that another one of our own played for the Gold Coast SUNS reserves a few weeks back. Congrats to Puma Senior Player Greg Friis who was voted best on ground for the Suns. Well earnt Greg!

We promised a fun night & from the feedback received & the laughter on the night we definitely delivered. The clubhouse was packed & there were reps & friends from nearly every Puma team in attendance (Master/Senior to all juniors teams).  The whole club  came together as one & awesome interactive time was had by all.

* The costumes: We had, Superman, Kiss, Batman, Catwoman, Wayne & Garth, Sister Act Nuns, Telly Tubbies, Martians, Hulk Hogan, Mr T, Madonna, Men in Black, Police, Vampires, Indiana Jones...etc

* The Games & Bribes raised over $400
* Simmos spruiking & firing up the crowd. His top 10 top selling artists/bands & video soundtracks had everyone interacting & screaming/singing/dancing  along. 
* Mark Kennedy (Gene Simmons) dancing solo along to the John Travolta dancing video tribute.
* The dance off between the 2 groups of Village People all doing the YMCA

* Simmo doing a Freddy Mercury & warming up the crowd before they burst into the Queen classics "We will Rock You" & "Bohemian Rhapsody"
* The excellent meal that Janette & Leanne organised.
* The stupid interactive questions that made teams discuss & laugh. Yes Simmo did lose Round 2 question 5 to 12 sheet which added to the jovial calamity. People said the questions were hard but most teams actually talked them out & got them correct
* The table dancing
* The impulsive yelling out of answers
* The dance floor was packed all night

* Continual Photo Bombing with senior Greg Friis appearing in most photos. Also a couple of shining moon shaped objects can be seen in the background of some never to be publicly published photos.
* The photo booth took some ripper photos

* On the night it seemed there were no groups. All parent & seniors interacted together &  were just one big "Puma family who had all come to party!"

To be honest it really didnt matter if there was a winner or not. All were just out to have a great night  & help fund-raise for the club. However, for the record by some suspicious near miracle, it was a 4 way tie at the end. The tie breaker was announced & the U16 group magically answered almost immediately. Rumor is there may have been a sizable bribe/club donation involved! (Thanks Mark)

* Most enthusiastic - Mark Kennedy
* U16 Dad Damo took the male honor with Tele-tubbie Adrian (Bear) Wallin a close Runner Up

* Best dressed lady went to the crazy Indian Squaw 

We have to thank Springwood Wellness Clinic www.springwoodwellnesscentre.com.au for supplying massage vouchers as prizes. U16 dad Shane for donating some wine. Leanne & Janette for organising the meal & decorating. Simmo for the promotion, quiz & entertainment & also thanks to the dads who helped set up the room. Most importantly but,  a MASSIVE THANKS to all Pumas that brought themselves & many extra friends along. All enjoyed yet another ripper quiz night.
