The third International Trivia Night – and the final one until September – will be held from 6-7:30 pm Wednesday, March 29, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures.
John Roberts, Fort Collins native and traveler extraordinaire, will again host the event featuring 50 questions. Six-person teams will compete for prizes, and light refreshments will be served.
Admission for both Museum members and non-members is $10 per person, and reservations are required at globalvillagemuseum.org.
Partial teams or full six-person teams are welcome with a two-step process. First, team members should make individual reservations. Second, an email with team members’ names must be sent to the Museum’s Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individuals who register without a team will be joined by others on the night of the event. Registration will close at 5 pm Saturday, March 25.
