Run Merrickville 2020 Trivia Night

Are you a trivia fan with some spare time?  Then grab your thinking-cap and come out for an evening of fun and laughter and compete 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 the third annual Trivia Night at the Merrickville Community Centre Saturday, 22 February 2020.  The purpose is to raise funds for the annual Merrickville Heritage Classic. 

Last year approximately 160 people came out and provided keen competition.  It was once again a tight race, and once again “Foster’s Follies” was edged out of top place, this time by “Team Name to Be Determined” thus failing to wipe out the disappointment of their defeat at the hands of La Traviata the year before.

Table décor will earn a prize for most creative looking table at the 2020 event. Although table decor was not a prize category in 2018 and 2019 there were some well decorated tables last year as teams tried to outdo the decorations of the Village Beanies from 2018.  The Beanies came prepared with tablecloth, place settings, decorations and a poster sized name card. 

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 will close at 10 pm.  

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.

No evening is truly fun without snack food!  Although snacks (popcorn) will be provided to the tables, team members are encouraged to bring (and share) their favourite snack foods.  MacInnis said there is a cash bar, but coffee, tea and cookies will be provided free of charge.

Registration will take place at the door between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm but preferably individuals and teams will pre-register via email at runmerrickville@gmail.com.

To save time at the door, participants may also pay via e-transfer to the above email address.
