September 2013 Pub Quiz and Trivia Night @ The Duke of Somerset

Hi All,

I am happy to announce our next Pub Quiz and Trivia night for Saturday September 28th.

I want to say first that we have increased the price for the Quiz to $5.00 per person for the following reasons:

We have been spending more money on Prizes for the last few quizzes than we are getting in dues.

I will be able to get some better prizes like cases of Beer and/or Wine, gift cards, electronics etc.

We want to give something to our quiz master for his kind service because up until now, Phil has been doing it for the sheer fun and he does such a fantastic job and now you won't feel guilty about heckling him.

It will help with printing/stationery costs.

In summary, we love doing the quiz nights as they are great fun but we need to make sure it pays for itself and that we send a little love to those that help put the event together for their time and effort. (anyone crying yet???)

Anyway, as always it promises to be a great laugh and the Duke of Somerset is looking forward to hosting our group once more.

There will be the usual question rounds (about 6 rounds) then a music round and a video round!!! Nothing too hard (I try to put together a balanced quiz but not overly easy).

The quiz starts at 7:30, we may delay a little if there are enough people running late but we will, as always be happy to recap the questions if you miss one or two.

If you are coming for the first time or even coming by yourself, you are welcome to bring some friends along to make your own team or you can post in the comments section that you are looking to join a team or have a team looking for others to join, and if you like leaving things to the last minute, just come find me or one of the other organizers on the night and we will help find you a team.

See you soon.

Jonathon

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
