Carmi Rotary Club Trivia This Weekend
The Carmi Rotary club’s biggest fundraiser of the year is fast-approaching. This Spring’s event will be held on Saturday, March 9th, at the American Legion in Carmi. The first question will be asked promptly at six pm, and the night should wrap up around eight. As in year’s past, there will be four rounds of ten questions each. The questions will come from such categories as: history, sports, the Bible, science, food, language, pop culture, and any other categories that might pop up. Theoretically the questions get harder as the night goes on, but that is up for dispute. The points do get higher as the night rolls along, meaning that even if a team does poorly in the first or second round, they can recover and come back to win by scoring good marks in the final two rounds.
The cost to play is only forty dollars for a four-person team, and there will be cash prizes awarded to the top three finishers. First prize claims one hundred dollars, second place grabs sixty dollars, and third place gets their money back with a forty-dollar cash prize.
Finger foods will be provided for the players and the spectators.
The largest amount of teams so far has been fourteen, this year the Rotarians are pushing hard to get at least sixteen teams on board. If you are interested in fielding a team, it can be made up of friends, neighbors, coworkers, church members, any combination you can come up with.
The money raised from this event goes to help support many, many groups and causes in the Carmi area, including: The Boy Scouts, Little League Baseball, White County Build, the Baptist Children’s Home, and many more.
The Carmi Rotary club urges you to make plans to be part of the Spring Trivia, Saturday, March 9th at the American Legion in Carmi.
