MUSC Lockdown Trivia
While we are all still at home, we are looking to run an online trivia event to stay connected to our team-mates and club-mates.
What is the price?
$10 per person with all revenue donated to charity- the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC)
When will it be?
Dates haven’t been locked in yet but the goal is to have it sometime around the end of August.
What would the event look like?
The idea is to hold a Zoom-based event which will be hosted by two awesome individuals, Meg & Timo. They have pivoted during isolation to run charity trivia events for a range of audiences and have already managed to raise thousands of dollars for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC). Meg & Timo run a pretty schmick online event where you move between the main Zoom room where they MC the event to pre-organised teams in Zoom breakout rooms to answer the actual questions. The great thing about this is everyone gets to be involved in their individual team and get a chance to speak to people in smallish groups while also getting to see everyone’s smiling faces on the main event.
“As someone who participated in one of their events last time, I can honestly say it was one of the best organised virtual events I have been involved in.”- Aras Mollison
If we have enough people, the idea is that we could play in our individual club teams for some fun intra-club rivalry. However, we obviously want to involve anyone who is keen, so there would be some flexibly for some mergers or transfers to make sure the teams are balanced.
Why the ASRC?
Meg is involved in the ASRC, so this is her cause of choice. For those that do not know, they play a vital role in protecting the rights of refugees and asylum seekers here in Melbourne. Recent important work they have done has included helping to feed the residents in tower lockdown ¬ something which was happening in many club members’ backyards / our community area in the inner north/west. Organisations like ASRC are run on the smell of an oily rag and every dollar raised goes towards them helping to provide a voice and care to people who really need someone looking out for them.
