Rotary to host Trivia Night

By Matthew Rice

 

It’s a chance to get out and have a fun evening of mental competition while raising funds for a good cause – it’s the Granville Rotary Club’s Trivia Night and it’s coming up Jan. 28.

The event returns to The Forum with a cash bar, free appetizers and desserts provided.

The competition to see who the titan of trivia, begins at 7 p.m. with the doors opening at 6 p.m.

Rotary Club member Dave O’Brien said the night is one every participant enjoys and it’s all for a great cause.

“Everyone should come out, it’s a great event and a great night – it’s a lot of fun,” O’Brien said.

Students return for the 2012 challenge at a special rate of $90 per team of six. Student team members must be 21 years of age or younger.

New this year, student teams will compete among themselves for a new trophy and the student trivia title.

The Forando Cup will once again go to the highest scoring Rotary club at the competition.

O’Brien said Poultney has already signed up and several other area clubs have been invited. The struggle for the Rotary Trophy is hoped to add a little spice and competitive fire to an already hotly contested evening.

Teams are asked to sign up as soon as possible.

To enter a team, call Peter O’Brien at TD Bank at 642-1010 and make a reservation under a team name.

The team name will help organizers get score cards prepared in advance of the event. Participants do not need to have a team of six people completely together to sign up, but organizers said it would help them plan if they knew how many teams were going to show up that night so make a reservation and then solidify that lineup.

Registration deadline is Friday, Jan. 20.

Each team can consist of no more than six people and adult teams cost $150 or just $25 per person, to enter; fewer team members does not mean a reduced entry fee.

O’Brien said the level of participation could reach record levels if sign ups continue at their current pace so he encouraged teams to sign up as soon as possible. The cost for spectators is $12.

“I’d encourage everyone to come out and join in, if anything

else, you’re going to have a lot of fun,” O’Brien said.
