Trivia Fan-atics wrap up a year of fun

Pictures of Trivia Winners

2015 Trivia Winners – Mary Carolyn Russel, (sitting). Standing – Robert Mohler (right) and Stu James.

The trivia-fanatics have been participating in a contest. Players on a winning team get a sticker. Those who take a turn at writing and giving a question set also get a sticker. At the December meeting the people with the most stickers got prizes. Mary Russell, with 18 stickers, won a $25 gift certificate for Safeway. Stu James, Robert Mohler and Kathleen Nelson tied at 14 stickers and got sock snowman from our own boutique.

Now is the great time to join us. A new contest starts in January 2016. – Everyone starts from zero, and the more you more you play the better your chances to win. Join us the first Wednesday of each month for a fun filled afternoon of trivia. We meet from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. No registration is required – just show up with your brain.

We play team trivia, based on the trivia game we played on Princess Cruise ships. We so enjoyed the twice daily trivia games during our cruises that we brought the concept to the Senior Club. People play in teams of 4 to 6 players, who work together to come up with one team answer for each question. Each player contributes his/her area of expertise because no one knows all the answers and everyone knows some of them. New teams are formed every month; this is an excellent chance to meet fellow Senior Club members and do a little collaborating.

Our trivia questions cover a wide variety of subjects. We play 3 games of 20 questions each. A number of members take turns in presenting their own set of questions, which keeps our games interesting and imaginative. It‘s also nice to be the smartest person in the room, since you know all the answers of the questions you created.

Participants are entitled to get a parking sticker from the front desk that lets you park free in the underground library parking lot until 4:00. An elevator takes you to ground level and the walk to the front door of the Senior Center is about the same distance as that from the closest Civic Park parking lot.

New players are always welcome. Exercise your brain. Join us for good fun and friendship.

2016 Parking Stickers

Parking stickers for 2015 are available now at the front desk.

Don’t forget to pick one up  and place it in your back driver’s side window.  You need it to park more than three hours or to park in the library parking lot.

In an effort to provide additional spaces for senior classes and programs, new signs have been posted in the Civic Park Community Center back parking lot that states spaces are reserved for senior participants during the high capacity hours Monday – Friday  10am 2 pm.  The library is still the best bet for keeping your car clean.
