Guests were "over the moon" when Baden (Chappy) and Angela Chapman decided to go ahead with the 2020 Chappy’s Spiritual Music Quest on September 5th after initial uncertainty caused by Covid 19.
For the past 14 years Baden and Angela have hosted a rock and roll music quiz at their home to raise funds for a good cause. The fun, private event has a dedicated band of followers, some of whom travel as far away as the Northern Territory and South Australia. This year has been claimed as the “best one ever”.
Chappy in his traditional ‘ring master’s’ hat becomes his alter ego ‘the Quizmaster’ entertaining from his stage all afternoon. Keeping everyone on their toes and testing the competitors’ knowledge, the 'Quizmaster" delivered questions on rock music from the 60’s, and 70’s and 80’s as fast paced as TV’s Julie Zamira’s Rock Quiz,
Guests either join a team of four or become a ‘roust-a-bout’ helper. Teams vie for the top score answering questions fired at them in the ‘Quizmaster’s’ inimitable style. The quiz is interspersed with competitions, raffles and auctions all carried out with lots of laughter and frivolity. “We want to thank everyone involved” said Chappy, “Without the support from our roust-a-bout staff the show wouldn’t happen”
Prizes and raffles, donated by sponsors from Cairns to Mission Beach are won during the day. Trophys are awarded for the best performances and to the team with the highest score. Hilarious highlights of the day include the mime and air guitar competitions.
‘The Gutta Boys’ team who travel from South Australia each year are the out front favourites and the team to beat. This year teams also included the ‘Blue Heros’ ‘Casso Warriors’ ‘Raging Revolutionaries’ , The Tree Huggers, ‘Good Vibrations’ and ‘Wait a Minute Chester’.
The ‘Gutta Boys’ won again this year but cassowaries are the biggest winners through the generosity of this fun group of people lead by the colourful Chappy, the Quizmaster.
Chappy sees cassowaries regularly when travelling on roads while working his garden maintenance business. “If you see a cassowary, please flash your lights to warn other drivers of a road hazard ahead” said Chappy .
With their community always in their hearts, Chappy and Angela encourage their guests to go out while they are in Mission Beach to support and enjoy locally owned and operated businesses. “It’s a great day and wonderful to get so many people attending from intrastate and interstate which supports our local community ‘Chappy’ said.
“Chappy and Angela are generous, community minded people, who make their ideas reality and have fun doing it”. said Mission Beach Cassowaries spokesperson Liz Gallie. “Their hard work has enabled our group to develop the ‘Mission Beach Naturally’ branding, letting people coming to our area know why it is so special, encouraging visitors to slow down and stay a little longer.”
Next year’s event is already in the planning. Table numbers are limited so if you know your 60’s, 70’s and 80’s music, and would like to be part of the quiz fest being held on August 28th, 2021, call or email Chappy to find out more. 0418 898 940 firstname.lastname@example.org
