First On-Line Trivia Raises Almost $1900! with 160 partipants
First On-Line Trivia Night Raises Almost $1900!
Despite having our normal in-person Fall November 2020 event cancelled due to the on-going pandemic, the Fall Trivia Night Committee held our first new “Virtual Trivia Night” on Saturday January 9. Still a fun night of 100 questions designed by our own in-house team of quizmasters, the full complement of 20 teams (comprising roughly 160 players) signed up - with a waiting list. The event had a maximum of 100 email address locations available on Zoom, with 98 being used, showing the diversity of locations for the players.
Cash prizes were not awarded for this on-line event. Instead all players had an equal chance at a variety of door prizes determined by spinning a prize wheel with each player’s name on it.
AND THE WINNER OF THE VIRTUAL TROPHY WAS “Trivia This!!”, a team playing from 7 different locations.
While most of our players were from our regular trivia lists, the event attracted players from Vancouver, North Bay, Tillsonburg, and Grand Bend  — a tribute to the far-reaching impact of the on-line version. As a sampling of comments illustrate, everyone had a great time: “What a super job you all did!  A very enjoyable evening", "We had fun, great questions", “Depending on how long it will take to get back to ‘normal’, we hope you will do it again".
