It’s a typical March morning…rainy and overcast. Eck, DAC and I have been working on putting questions together for “Raid on Trivia 51” and are moving along quite nicely. But there is a cloud overhead. Many of you have heard about the announcement by the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point concerning extension of spring break and suspension of in-person classes until April 15th. This is presuming that things don’t get worse, which there is no promise of that. There are also rules concerning building use, which would make it impossible to do Trivia Registration beginning April 13th. If the middle of April were to roll around and the decision were made to continue the suspensions through the end of the school year, it would completely prohibit us from having the Trivia contest the scheduled weekend. So, I like to avoid the problem. At this time “Raid on Trivia 51” is being postponed until the weekend of October 23, 24, 25, 2020. This is official, not from the University, not from hearsay, but right from me.
But take heed, the weekend of April 17, 18, 19, 2020, is going to be a major fun weekend of “Retro Trivia 2020”! Beginning at 6 o’clock, Friday April 17, you will be exposed to hours and hours of retro questions from the past 41 years of Trivia on 90FM. We will have the contest from 6am until 10pm each day. So, Friday we will be on from 6 until 10, reading hours of questions from the past 41 years. Each hour will feature a complete hour of a previous year. Some hours will have 8 questions, some will have 10. There will be no scoring, no calling in answers, no registration, no need to form groups, just a need to have a weekend of fun. And, the bonus is, you get to sleep each night.
I’m sure there are those of you who might be upset, but I take full responsibility for this decision. I want you to understand that I consider all of you my family and I want the best for your health and this particular world crisis is something that a responsible person needs to address. Thank you for your support in the past and hopefully, you’ll have time to get your teams organized for the October contest. And yes, there will be another in April. Holy cow, 2 contests in 1 school year!!!
I’m hoping you’ll be listening the weekend of April 17, 18, 19 when we can all play a really cool “Retro Trivia 2020”.
Now, let’s play Trivia Fast Eddie………………………………..
