Annual Grizzly Trivia Night to be Held January 24

(West Plains) – Dust off those thinking caps and begin studying for the 12th annual Trivia Night benefiting the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly Basketball team, which is set for 6:30 PM Saturday, January 24, at the West Plains Civic Center.

Sponsored by the Grizzly Booster Club, the contest, which will feature questions on a variety of topics, will pit teams of area residents against each other for the opportunity to win the coveted Trivia Night Trophy. Teams of eight will be asked questions in a variety of categories, from pop culture to science and everything in between. The team with the highest score after 10 rounds of questions will win the trophy, along with some other great prizes. Prizes also will be awarded to the second- and third-place teams.

In addition to the trivia contest, teams are encouraged to decorate their table however they choose for the chance to win other prizes. Past winning themes in the table decoration contest have included a Mardi Gras celebration, James Bond villians, duck hunting, a surgery room, Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and even a group of hillbillies who called themselves “Farmville.”

The cost of participating is $160 per team, and pre-registration is required.
