If you’re reading this blog you’re probably a sports fan. And if you’re a sports fan, you will love the sports trivia competition we’re having here at the library Friday Night, July 22 from 6:00-8:30. It’s so easy to participate! Just get some friends together and form a team. Teams can have up to eight members. If you can’t get eight, that’s okay, just remember that the more people you have on your team, the bigger the pool of knowledge you’ll have to come up with answers to questions from all over the sports world. That’s right, there will be questions from all over the world of sports; collegiate and professional sports, as well as local, state, and national sports. Our questions will also cover a wide span of time, with questions from this year, as well as questions from decades past. There will be ten rounds of ten questions with prizes awarded for the top three trivia teams. You do need to register, and you can do so either in person at the Red Carpet Desk, by calling 580-4545, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s all there is to it! So come out and enjoy a fun evening in competition with your fellow area sports enthusiasts! We look forward to seeing you there!
