Ye Trivia Titans Shall Clash Tomorrow!

As you Titans prepare to Clash, the world is watching – behold this spectacular illustration created by Lukas Ketner for the Head Out section of the current issue of Willamette Week (they wrote a great little feature, too)!



Bubo will NOT be delivering drinks at The Spare Room tomorrow, but they will have plenty of human wait-staff on hand to serve you food and drink. Human mortals are actually quite good at bartending – vote for your favorite (as well as your Favorite Venue, Best Shit-Talkers, Underdogs, etc.) right here on this short survey. Vote online by about noon tomorrow, or cast your vote with a paper ballot in person before the Olympian Open. You’ve also still got a good 24 hours to prepare for the Spirit Bunny Award half-time show! This is really just a chance to introduce your team and get some well-earned applause. If you want that trophy though, they key word is showmanship – entertain us! The champion will be determined by your applause.

There will be all kinds of trophies and prizes awarded throughout the evening, including a special Donkey Prize trophy for the lowest scoring Titan team. Also, everybody gets a cute little leprekey beer cozy just for playing, so even if you don’t win anything else, you can totally lie to people and say that you “won them in a trivia competition!” As for champion teams, they will choose from a variety of different prizes. In addition, the winning Olympians and Titans will all receive ShanRock’s Triviology T-shirts (or tank tops for the ladies!). And the champion of you all, at the end of the day, will also win Barfly bus tickets, a private, customized ShanRock’s Triviology quiz, and coveted hand knit scarves – wear them proudly! Virginia of Dr. Spaceman, last year’s Titan champs, said of her scarf – “it warms my neck AND my heart!”
Here are some of your trophies:

Here is the schedule for the day’s events:

5:00 REGISTRATION
*Come early and grab a choice table!

5:30 OLYMPIAN OPEN
*Anybody is welcome to participate in this quiz – trophies and prizes for the two highest scoring teams. The champion team becomes the wild card seed who will participate in the Titan Invitational. (Titans can play in The Open just for fun, or as a warm-up – they will not win anything, nor will they be able to oust Olympians out of the wild card slot!)

7:30 NON-COMPETITIVE AWARDS
*Trophies for Best Bartender, Favorite Venue, Best Shit-Talkers, Favorite Foes, Underdog Team, etc. These categories will be decided by your votes!

7:45 HALF TIME SHOW
*This competition started out as “Best Costumes,” but it has evolved into “The Spirit Bunny Award.” Any team, whether Olympian or Titan, will introduce themselves in any way they see fit. It could be as simple as saying “Hurray for our team!” into the mic, or as elaborate as Nomi Malone Dance Academy, last year’s champions. Trophy to the champions, as determined by applause!

8:00 TITAN INVITATIONAL
*Only Titan teams official compete in this quiz – trophies and prizes for the three highest scoring teams. Titan teams are those that have won 12 times or more at ANY of my quizzes over past year, AND the Olympian wild card team. Please contact me if you think you’ve qualified, but you haven’t received an invitation to participate. A list of this season’s champions is on the Hall of Fame page. (Olympians can play in The Invitational just for fun!)

10:00ish FINAL AWARDS

I can’t wait to see all of you there, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!
On a final note, my apologies to the Crackhead Boxers – last week, I accidentally listed a different team as the Ella Street Social Club champions, when in fact they had reigned victorious! And speaking of Da Club, this Monday is Canuck Quizzery – challenge your knowledge of The Great White North!

Upcoming special events:
