24th Annual Kumbia Brain Drain
Yes! It's on again and more mind-snapping than ever! The 24th Annual Kumbia Brain Drain will be held at Kumbia Hall on the Bunya Highway in Kumbia from 6:00pm until late this evening. The event - which is the major annual fundraiser for Kumbia State School P&C - is a trivia-style tournament where teams of 6 compete for great cash prizes. Guests at this year's Brain Drain are encouraged to dress to the theme "The Old West" to be in the running for great prizes for the best-dressed team and best team name. There'll also be cash prizes for round winners and overall winners, along with the usual fun-filled audience participation games and raffles. Traditional Old West snacks, tea and coffee will be provided, but you'll need to BYO liquids if you have a righteous thirst that needs specialised attention. Admission is $120 per table of six, players must be aged 15 years and over, and a maximum of 35 teams can take part. There'll also be a bus running from Kingaroy to Kumbia, but you'll need to book to reserve a place. More details? Phone Kate 0407-262-262. Note: The Brain Drain is usually sold out, so if you haven't booked tickets yet it may be wise to phone Kate to ensure there are still some left.
