OLYMPIC HISTORY: Exercise your brain at Trivia Night

June 4, 2015
By ALISON HAAS , Lake Placid News

The Lake Placid Olympic Museum is hosting a Trivia Night on Thursday, June 11 at 7 p.m.

The Olympic Games are held every four years and in keeping with that tradition, it has been four months since our last Trivia Night in February. Participants are not competing for gold, silver or bronze medals, but for bragging rights and door prizes. And if your team is judged to be the smartest, a grand prize will be awarded and you will earn the title of "Trivia Night Champion."

In the spirit of the Olympic Games, this is an event for all to come together and engage in some friendly competition. At the last Trivia Night, the museum saw some of the smartest individuals in our community along with several contestants that were determined to show off their strengths in how to have a good time.

If you think you have what it takes to outwit your friends in general trivia or you want a fun night out with your friends or family doing something other than sitting in front of the television and shouting at the contestants on "Jeopardy," we can promise you it will be a good time. However, staff is warning all participants that you might leave with abdominal pains and or soreness in your buccal region from laughing so hard. If you are not familiar with what buccal refers to, you might want to study up before Trivia Night.

General trivia questions will be presented in six rounds of 10 and a grand prize will be given to the overall group winner. There will be an entrance fee to benefit the Lake Placid Olympic Museum and tickets are $10 per person or $8 per person to pre-register. The maximum group size will be 4 people and doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The museum will offer snacks, a 50/50 raffle and for those looking to edge out the competition and do what it takes to win, we suggest purchasing extra beverages for your opponents at the cash bar. Another museum insider tip for teams, whether you are a newbie or die hard trivia fan, is to always shield your answer sheets from your rivals and work on your group huddle technique.

Trivia Night will also be an opportunity for visitors to see some of the recent changes at the Lake Placid Olympic Museum and the evening will act as a fundraiser to assist in future exhibit renovations.

The Lake Placid Olympic Museum is located at the Olympic Center in Lake Placid.
