Last Friday night Two Rivers Main Street held our first "Great Trivia Contest" in the Community House. Eight teams came to play. This is a team competition where nine categories of questions are presented on a screen, and every team answers all of the questions. The categories included such favorites as "TV; Movies; Sports; Things I Learned in School and the USA" amongst others. In between rounds, the answers are given and the team standings revealed.
As the contest moved into the later rounds, the competition became fierce as at least five teams had a shot at the title. In the end though, it was a victory by three points by Team Tropic Thunder. Team Reference This came in second followed by Team Bob-a-Loose. Team Beauties and the Geeks took home the trophy for the best team theme.
Here are the final standings:
Tropic Thunder (from Carron Net Co.)
Reference This (from the Lester Library)
Bob-a-Loose (from Shoreline Credit Union)
The Oddballs (from US Bank Manitowoc)
The Red Bank Gang (from the Red Bank Coffeehouse)
Beauties and the Geeks (from Schroeders Dept. Store)
The Spring Flingers (from Two Rivers City Hall)
The High Flyers (from Two Rivers Recreation Dept.)
No matter the standings, everyone was a winner in the fun department!
