Memorial Day Trivia 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.

-Anders and the BBGM Triviati

      "Name Droppings" could maybe be Round 7 - audio of famous people talking about other (more famous) people, and we have to ID the speaker? Just a guess. And the Memorial round could be about actual memorials (Washington Monument,etc) instead of the day itself.

      Ah, I like that guess for round 1.
      Now the round titles are almost always chronological, (Shaylee claims there have been exceptions, but they must be rare) so the name droppings are probably not round 7. My hope is that it's the visual round, where you have to name the droppings of various animals. :)

    please consider others..... we have had people drop out because places on the list were shown as full and the person didn't turn up..... if you don't know if you can make it please join the waiting list if at all possible we don't like it when people sign up and don't show up.... From June 3rd the quiz will take on new meaning.... one of our teams will always be "Nipbrethil Shipwrights" it will always be 6 members to maximise the chance of getting into the finals of the Rumble in the pub, two team captains are Marian and myself. team members will be able to float and change but either Marian or myself will have to be there.... if you know there is a pub near you that is a good location to play then talk to one of us and we will work out who can be there to help... Again this is a competition with a cash prize.... how the prize is split will be worked out but the division will be fare.

    if you have any questions please contact Marian or myself Off list

      I don't know how many - if any! - if you live on the Eastside, but I live in Bellevue. I thought that I could try to cover the Eastside (meaning EAST of the Lake, not Madrona!) while Shaylee concentrates on Seattle proper. Maybe we need a separate (non-pub night) Meetup to discuss all this?

      I took James's data, added data for the Eastside and put it all in this document: https://docs.google.co...­

    A quick update on new Geeks venue, St. Andrew's bar near Greenlake. As expected, the turn out was slight, only three teams. It's also convenient for me (one bus trip). That address again:
    7406 Aurora Ave N

      Forgot: That's on Tuesdays at 8

      $10 says that place is going to be slammed on June 4...

    Oops! Never will manage to figure out y'all's American holidays. Fixed it, I think.
