26th Annual Kumbia Brain Drain
The 26th 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 - 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 "Game Of Crowns" to be in the running for great prizes. There'll also be cash prizes for round winners and overall winners, along with the usual fun-filled audience participation games and raffles. Snacks, tea and coffee will be provided, and a cash bar will be operating (so no BYO). 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 James on 0409-598-179.

Grape Escape - Moffatdale and Kingaroy

Guests can simply drive to any one of the participating wineries, then jump on the all-day shuttle bus and choose which wineries they'd like to visit as it moves from one venue to the next. In Kingaroy, Kingsley Grove Estate will also be taking part but because of its distance from Moffatdale, the shuttle bus will not be running to it.
