Creative costumes, inventive table arrangements, delicious food treats and, of course, challenging questions produced another festive, fun-filled afternoon and evening at this year’s Trivia Quizzes organized through Niños Incapacitados.
32, eight-member teams competed in the Ninth Annual Trivia Quizzes event held at the Hotel Real de Chapala on February 6. All of the event’s proceeds will be used to help the 160+ Lakeside children with their expenses for medical and therapeutic care.
At the afternoon session, where ten teams competed, “Fake News” triumphed for first place by correctly answering 69 of the 80 multiple choice questions which were projected on eight large screens strategically placed throughout the room. “Rob Roy” finished second, and in third place was “Half Wits”.
At the evening session, “Los Magnifico Ocho” prevailed over 22 teams, scoring 67 correct answers. In the runner-up position was “La Cristina Gang,” with “Aztec Terriers” in third.
The trivia questions covered an array of topics from art, history, science, sports, and current events. Questions that stumped almost everyone were: “What is the Red October being hunted for in The Hunt for Red October?” Answer: A Soviet Submarine; “When Jell-O was invented in 1897, which of the following was NOT one of the original flavors?” Answer: Lime.
