All-star Sports quiz night in NYC to feature USA Eagle Phaidra Knight

Host and Cricket legend, David Gower

The St. George's Society of New York and GEORGE are pleased to announce that they will be partnering with Captain's Knock and Sparks once again for a Sports Quiz on July 13th, 2011. 
The quiz will be hosted by former England cricket captain, David Gower and will take place at the prestigious New York Athletic Club, 180 Central Park South, from 6pm - 10.30pm.

St. George's Society 2011 members are entitled to a discounted price of $150 for individual tickets (regular tickets start at $175). Tickets include a three course meal, open bar cocktail hour, wine and beer throughout, and participation in the quiz and charity auctions. Tables of 10 are also available for $1,750.

The quiz will include questions across all sports from American Football and Baseball to Rugby and Aussie Rules.  Bear this in mind when assembling your table/team of ten.  If you buy individual tickets they will help assemble teams.  They will use the same interactive technology they use for the electronic auction, with tables competing against each other, with countdown clocks and fun animations.

Joining David on a panel of guests will be legendary Liverpool, Spurs and England goal keeper Ray Clemence.  Ray played over 660 times for Liverpool and is involved in the current England set-up.

July will make a year to the Olympics being held in London, so joining the panel will be Denise Lewis and Sir Matthew Pinsent.  Denise won the heptathlon gold at Sydney 2000 and Matthew has the incredible feat of winning 4 gold rowing medals in successive Olympics from 1992-2004.  Sir Alan Collins, British Consul-General will open the quiz with a look forward to 2012.

Also in attendance will be the New York Red Bulls whose table last year featured US soccer greats, Claudio Reyna and Jeff Agoos.  Also from the soccer world will be Chris Bart-Williams, former Nottingham Forest Captain, who is currently coaching in Connecticut.

They will also be joined by special sporting guests from the NY area, including US Olympic medalists and Phaidra Knight, one of the world's all-time greatest women rugby players (
and former podcast guest of ARL)
