Canterbury Spatial Network and NZIS Quiz Night

Interpret Quiz Night 2015

Posted by on 24 August 2015

Last week saw the first ever Canterbury Spatial Network and NZIS Quiz Night. All 14 tables were snapped up quickly with a good mix from the GIS and surveying worlds. Kurt Janssen from Interpret and Shane Dixon from Harrison Grierson did a great job of being the Quizmasters for the evening. First prize went to the team ‘I quizzed a girl and I liked it’ a mixed table from Interpret/Abley and Beca, with second prize going to ‘My sperm count is..’! The coveted wooded spoon was awarded to the aptly named ‘Unable’ team. A big thank you to everyone who came and made the night a success but most of all, thank you to the sponsors NZIS, Intergraph, Interpret, Eagle, Beca, GHD, and Harrison Grierson without whom the night would not have happened.
