Olde Ship Pub Quiz!

Join us for another chance at nerd domination at The Olde Ship's July pub quiz. The quiz is a really fun time--especially if you're into Jeopardy, Trivia Pursuit, or just like useless trivia. The questions can get pretty tough, but even if your brain hurts by the end of it, it's a good opportunity to get together for good food, drinks and nerd team bonding!

The quiz starts at 7:30, but we'll meet around 7 to get a table. Make sure to bring $5 in cash to take part in the quiz. It's seven rounds, including one handout round and one picture matching round. If you're interested in British pop culture or history, this is definitely the quiz for you (there's plenty of questions for the non-Anglophiles, too).The winning team gets to split the pot ... which is typically around $400-$500! There are prizes for the 2nd and 3rd place teams as well (usually booze and/or gift cards). Hope you can make it!

NOTE: This event will count toward the group attendance policy.

*At the June pub quiz, our team placed second (woo-hoo!). Since one of our prizes was a $50 Olde Ship gift card, those who were on the June team will be given first dibs at getting to spend it. What will happen is that up until 7 p.m. on July 3rd, those people will automatically be placed on the team if they sign up for the event, and if the event fills up with June team members, those who weren't on the team will be moved to the waiting list. After 7 p.m. on July 3rd, though, the attendance system will work as it usually does (first come, first serve).*

    Woohooo. Third Place for Dorian Gray's Not So Great Expectations! I was shocked when they said we won third. Good job everyone!

    It doesn't matter to me how many people team two has, we're going to kick their butts!

    The waiting list has 8 people now, so I'll get team 2 set up in the next few minutes. I'll put myself as the host of both team 1 and 2 for now, but if any of you team 2 folks would like to host that team, please let me know--either on the event page or via e-mail. Thanks!

    Usually people drop off closer to the meet up and it's happened often, that's why Katie waits until there is 8 on the wait list to create another team. Keeping the max of 8 people per team improves our chances of winning :) Mike, you do want to win right?

    Hopefully one more person can sign up and make it a full team for sure. But on the day of and there's still 7 that's really enough to go ahead and set up a second team. Hopefully the wait list doesn't get to 8 then people flake on Tuesday.

    Looks like we're going to have a second team.

    Sure, if we get a full second team on the waiting list, I'll set up team #2.

    I think that is Mike's subtle hint he wants you to bring the Whisky Katie lol :)

    On top of the gift card, we can't forget about the whisky. I'm really looking forward to hitting that whisky!
