The fourth and final event of the 2014/2015 Society of Actuaries in Ireland Student Committee was the annual summer BBQ in D2 on Harcourt Street, Dublin.
The event commenced at 6:30pm with over 80 students in attendance. There was a huge spread of BBQ food available to suit everyone's taste as well as a range of salads and wedges, all washed down with a range of complementary drinks, from craft beers to cocktails.
After the BBQ came the competition everybody was waiting for - the chance to win an Apple iPad, kindly donated by Acumen Resources. Everybody who had registered for the event was entered into a draw, however, only those present on the night could participate.
Six lucky attendees were chosen at random to participate in a knock-out quiz of five rounds. Competitors were asked a question in each round and whoever was furthest from the correct answer was knocked out.
Questions on the night ranged from requiring competitors to determine the total maximum recommended study for all exams and courses to qualify as a Fellow of the IFoA, to guessing how many bridges cross the River Liffey from Lucan to the coast.
The knock-out rounds continued until finally, Michael Cheuk was the last participant standing. He was presented with his new Apple iPad by Jenny Johnson.
Thanks to D2 and Acumen Resources for their help in organising another successful event, and to all the members who attended.
