Pub Trivia Night at the Blue Star

OPEN CALL FOR TRIVIA BUFFS!!

Come one, come all and test your strength against the cognoscenti of Seattle Geekdom! We meet every Monday at the Blue Star Cafe and Pub. For more on the rules check out the Geeks Who Drink Trivia League. There are free beer questions between rounds and gift certificates for the top 3 teams. Make use of a lifetimes worth of absorbing useless pop culture and random facts. Whether you are a trivia buff or have never played please join us! WE WANT YOU!!!

The organizers will show early and stake out a table for our team by 7:30. We will have a hand-made meetup sign. If we have more than the team limit of six people we can split into 2 teams. The quiz begins at 8 sharp, so try to get there by 7:45PM so we won't have to break up and reform teams. Newcomers are always welcome.

    NEWS ABOUT THE RUMBLE! I just got this email from GWD HQ (I assume Shaylee got one too, as the other co-captain): \

    Congratulations! Your team made it into the top thirty teams for your region, which means you get first dibs for a spot in the Final Rumble happening at Ballard Loft on Saturday, August 10th at 3pm.

    We're preselling tickets to only the top thirty right now. That means you. Team tickets are $30. If your primary team is less than six, I'd encourage you to spend the next couple of weeks recruiting, because we're keeping it to $30 per team, no exceptions. The prizes? A guaranteed $300 for first, $200 for second, and $100 for third.

    Part TWO: How do you sign up? Follow the three steps below. Do not share these links. We'll be checking teams off our Top Thirty list as we go along and if they're not on there they're not getting a slot. FYI, this email is going out to both team Captains, so you might want to coordinate who's buying the tickets.

    IMPORTANT: You only have until Friday, August 2nd to be guaranteed a spot, at which point we'll be opening the event up to the top 40, the top 50 and so on until the event is full. Once the event is sold out, it's sold out, so don't delay.

    1. Click this link and purchase your team's ticket via PayPal.
    2. Fill out the form on this page. That gets us all the relevant info about your team.
    3. Check in with your quizmaster on August 10th between 2pm and 2:45pm at Ballard Loft (5105 Ballard Ave NW Seattle, WA 98107). Quiztime is 3pm
