Pub Stumpers (weekly pub trivia) returns for Winter 2013 @The Unicorn Pub!

Pub Stumpers returns for 2013, and DSN is right in the thick of it !!

Get your thinking caps on, flip through yer high school notes, and grab your old textbooks out of the junk drawer - it's time for Pub Stumpers @The Unicorn Pub!!

**Feel free to come out & check it out one night - we aren't concerned about a serious, long-running team - DSN is all about new things, getting out of your shell or comfort zone, and meeting people!
You don't HAVE to return the next week - but there's a good chance you'll WANT to!!!

**I will not be posting repeating Pub Stumpers events here in DSN - this event is a really good INTRODUCTION to the weekly game hosted by the pub.  There is a Trivia Meetup group that meets weekly that I will refer you to for continuing Tuesday night fun!

When the original host left the pub for greener pastures, it fell to me to become the host; I will be talking to everyone in the place; not just the DSN group...
NOTE that this is a public event, and more than half of the patrons are general public, not with DSN. 
FIND the group before sitting & making yourself at home with any strangers!!


WHAT:

Trivia, more trivia, & even the useless information your grandpa used to mumble on about... you WERE listening, I hope!

The pub offers a weekly set of trivia, provided the PubStumpers.com website.
The format is as follows...

Teams of up to 6 can play together - the format is as follows:

  • 10 general interest questions (10 points)
  • 10 song clips - name the ARTIST & TITLE (20 points)
  • 10 multiple-choice questions (10 points)
  • <break>
  • 10 general interest questions (10 points)
  • 10 song clips - name the ARTIST & TITLE (20 points)
  • 10 multiple-choice questions (10 points)
  • 5 final questions (10 points)
  • The tie-breaker (just in case)!!
  • throughout the evening, you can fill in the 10 'identify the picture' questions (10 points)

A total of 100 points are available to be scored.
We shuffle the answer sheets around the room, the host reads out the correct answers, and whichever team comes out with the highest scores, wins a discount on their tab for the night.

WHEN:

Tuesdays at 6:30!!!
The trivia game begins around 6:30, and run about 2 hours. Let's meet around 6:00pm, get our mojo on with a drink, snack or dinner, first, and work out our strategy... (concentrating of course, on the drink or food... or at least, the drink!!!)

WHERE:

The Unicorn Pub is on the north side of 8th Ave (Stephen Avenue), a couple of doors west of 2nd St SW, but east of the Met Grill - it is DOWNSTAIRS and the Trivia takes place in the room to the LEFT as you enter the place.

We are (almost always) in the far left corner as you enter that room.

WHY:

It's fun, it's edu-taining, it's a great way to meet new people in the group, a good opportunity to show off your knowledge (or to be embarrassed by it!), and an overall good time...

HOW:

Show up... that's about it!!  You don't need to be an expert (although if you're really good identifying music clips, you will be in great demand!)

LEAGUE PLAY:

There is a rotating 12-week League Play for those interested in a regular run of the game - but it's not too serious, and it IS a lot of FUN, FUN, FUN!!!!

HOW MUCH:

The Stumping is free!!
For our group, $1 DoSomethingNew Meetup fee is a traditional fee.  However, due to the nature of this 'regular' event, I will not charge the loonie.

Food/drink are your own responsibility - we usually get a group/table bill, but it's not difficult to break it down when the tables are only of a half-dozen people per table.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
