Bonne chance !

It’s French Quiz time again:

Question 1: Who was the French President before Macron ? a) De Gaulle  b)  Sarkozy   c) Hollande ?

Question 2: Which of the following regions do you MOST associate with white wine?  a) Bordeaux  b) Alsace  c)  Burgundy ?

Question 3:  What is the connection between the Astrolabe Reef and Welcome Bay’s  D’Urville Way ?

Yes, some of the questions are multi choice and some do require an answer, but, if you’re a quiz junkie, interested in things French and looking for a fun evening served with coffee and a delicious dessert, then come along to our annual Bastille Day French Quiz to be held a little early this year on Thursday July 12th. Questions are in English but for those who wish to self test their knowledge of the French language, there’s a French version as well.  However, very sorry, still no prizes of trips to Paris or Noumea.

Venue: Ohauiti Hall, 459 Ohauiti Road, just after Boscabel.

Quiz Start Time: 7pm
