The August Trivia night was the first one since February of 2020 and was a great success! We sold out on the first day, and hope to keep up the fun spirits for the remaining 2021 Trivia Nights. Kelli Blackwater from Care N Care Insurance was the evenings’ sponsor. She had her colleagues Blake and Henry join her and they provided door prizes and snacks for the players! They did an excellent job being the MC and time keeping.
There were 25 playing teams and they were full of cheers when they got a question right and “boos” if they missed it!
For those that haven’t played before, there are six rounds of questions which are made up of three questions each and teams bet points on their answers. The Halftime question had 10 possible answers and 10 bonus and teams received one point for each correct answer. The final question was worth 20 points and teams could bet a minimum of one point, if they bet 0 points, they lost all 20 points. At this point of the night, it’s all about strategy when betting on the final question.
The categories vary each Trivia Night but here are a few of the questions from the August Trivia Night. Answers are at the bottom.
1. Companies: Which company’s name comes from the Danish word for “play” well?
2. Sports: What did baseball legend Babe Ruth keep under his baseball cap?
3. Music: What famous singer was born with the name Gordon Sumner?
4. Final Question – Products: What does the “Q” in Q-tip stand for?
Eight team members work together as one to come up with the answer and have three minutes to submit it!
The winning team members each received Wildhorse Grill gift certificates.
1st Place: We’re Just Guessin’ – 85 points
2nd Place: Perfect 10’s – 71 points
3rd Place: Big Bang Beakers – 63 points
