If you are a trivia fan with some spare time, then grab your thinking-cap and come out for a evening of fun and laughs while competing with those around you attempting to drag obscure bits of information from the dark recesses of their brains!
The Organizers of Run Merrickville are hosting a trivia night at the Merrickville Community Centre on Saturday, February 24th to raise funds for the annual Merrickville Heritage Classic.
Race Director, Lori Urquhart said the money raised will help offset the cost of this year’s medals, which will incorporate a logo celebrating the 225th anniversary of the founding of Merrickville and help with the purchase of traffic pylons to enhance runner safety.
According to event organizer Sally MacInnis the format for the evening is simple.
Participants form teams of up to 10 people and create a distinctive team name.
It is an evening of tens. The cost is $10.00 per person, there are ten rounds of ten questions in a variety of categories throughout the evening and the event closes at ten.
Since Google is not a permitted team member, buckets will be provided at each table to hold cell phones for the duration of the event.
Although snacks such as chips or popcorn will be provided to the tables, teams are encouraged to bring their favourite snack foods. MacInnis said there is a cash bar, but coffee, tea and cookies will be provided free of charge.
Registration can take place at the door between 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. or individuals and teams can pre-register via email at [email protected]
