Welcome

We invite you to join to our Charity Trivia Contest at the Vero Beach Elks. Our first contest will take place in the Lounge after the Queen of Hearts raffle on February 21 at 7:00 pm.

Our goal is to provide you an easy-to-play,  entertaining, fast-moving contest that will help us raise money for our Elks charities. The proceeds of the next contest will be to help send disadvantaged kids aged 9-13 to attend the Elks youth camp in Umatilla, FL this summer.

There will be three Rounds of up to eight questions in these trivia categories in our next contest:

    • The Olympics
    • TV Shows
    • U.S. Presidents

 

Teams of one to six players are invited to enter the contest.  The teams will be given one paper Response Form for each Round. See the image on the left. All answers are multiple choice. The quizmaster will read the question twice and after 15 seconds of “thinking music” will read the next question.  One player from each team will write A, B, C or D next to the question number on the Response Form.

After all the questions for the Round have been read and time given to answer, the quizmaster will offer to re-read one time any of the questions in that Round.

The Response Forms will then be collected after each Round and scored. Each team will receive one point for each correct answer.  While the Response Forms are being scored, the quizmaster will review the answers to the questions. There will be a short intermission after the first two Rounds.  Then the scores for the Round for each team will be read and displayed on a TV in the Lounge.

Note that teams are requested to register in advance by 3:00 pm the day of the Trivia Contest. Those that do so will receive an additional point for each Round. Complete rules of the Trivia Contest are here.

If you just want to play for fun and not register you are welcome to participate.  We won’t keep track of your score or display your results.
