Mr. Bill's Traveling Trivia Show
Saturday night, November 1st, my husband and I - along with some friends - went to Mr. Bill's Traveling Trivia Show in Newport, Oregon.
Bob, Des, Paul, Kathy, Lars and I went to play this team Trivial Pursuit at the Rogue Ale Pub. We played under the team name of Chuck's Brother and the Dweebs (that's there for Bob - who just happens to be Chuck's brother).
It was a lot of fun and I think we were tied for 2nd place - with a couple other teams. Some of the questions were super hard but people managed to get them (all 18 of them) correct - I have no idea how they did it. Jealous of those brainiacs.
And, I'm not saying they were looking up their answers on their Blackberry or anything - but don't think the thought didn't cross my mind. It's just that I don't think it would be fun to Win if I wasn't playing fair.
Remember, I never made any accusations - just saying the idea popped into my own head - but then I'm waaaay too competitive.
Anyway, back to the fun and games.
Mr. Bill asks the questions, three at a time, and each team writes down their answers then turns them in to the scorekeeper. Most teams compete for the fun of it - but like I said, I was playing for the prizes.
We even won one $7.00 off coupon. And some people won t-shirts, hats and other prizes.
I'd never done this Traveling Trivia before but I would definitely do it again - even if I am a DWEEB.
