Team Trivia 2014
Grab a friend who's into sports. Another history buff. And maybe a science nerd. Voila: you have the perfect Team Trivia roster. Or not. You'd probably do just as well by corralling a few friends for the 14th annual Team Trivia. The quizmasters are notorious for their off-the-wall questions, stumping college professors and algebra drop-outs alike.
Teams of four can sign up now for the March 11 and March 13 event at Whispering Springs Golf Club. Team members pay $25 for adults and $15 for teens (ages 13-18). The event includes a cash bar and a $12.50 per person Pulled Pork Sandwich dinner. Dinner is served at 5:30 p.m., accompanied by live music from Daryl Rogers, and the quizzing begins at 6:30 p.m.
Anyone can play. The fun is in the group-think, trying as a team to come up with answers to questions on music, movies, history, sports, literature, geography, science and Wisconsin. At the end of the game, scores are tallied and awards are given to the top three teams. The first-place team on March 11 will be invited back to compete – for free – on March 13. Teams also can buy one "answer" per game, for $20. These come in very handy when a really tough question comes up.
The event supports Fond du Lac Literacy Services, a non-profit organization that helps adults with the basic skills needed to learn and prosper in the 21st Century: reading, writing and mathematics. Trained tutors provide free, one-on-one instruction. It's estimated that eight percent, or 6,000 adults, in Fond du Lac County read below the sixth grade level.
