To get in the spirit of this year’s Canada Day celebrations, the Comox Valley Council of Canadians is hosting their tenth annual Oh Canada! Team Trivia Night on Saturday, June 11. This highly anticipated event is being held at the Rotary Hall, Filberg Center – 411 Anderton Road, Courtenay. Doors open at 6:30 pm with trivia questions beginning at 7pm sharp.
The evening of fun and fundraising also features bar service, snacks, door prizes, raffle baskets, and a 50/50 draw, with proceeds supporting AIDS Vancouver Island Comox Valley.
This is a great opportunity to test your knowledge of Canadiana as teams square off in a welcoming and relaxed, yet action-packed, trivia showdown. Whatever your current level of Canuck wisdom, don’t miss this chance to test your knowledge and learn about Canada’s rich arts, cultural and social history in a community event.
“Our dynamic and ever-popular quizmaster Andrew Black is back by demand with trivia questions that are guaranteed to challenge the wits of our most patriotic Canucks,” says Marilyn Hannah, one of the event’s organizers. “We always enjoy an evening of laughter – and a few groans and moans – as we test our knowledge of all things that makes us Canadian.”
The host, Andrew Black, will include a range of topics and difficulties in the questions, and is sure to include some surprises. “This is an opportunity to raise awareness of our great country in an entertaining way,” says Black, “while also raising funds for the important work of the Council of Canadians.”
The fundraiser supports the Comox Valley chapter on several campaigns important to Canadians. These projects range from challenging various national corporate rights and free trade deals, to the local Chapter’s Health Care campaigns and the Blue Communities initiative.
The Oh Canada! Team Trivia Night is the perfect time for lovers of laughter, amusing facts and collectors of trivia to gather some brilliant (or otherwise) buddies, build a team of eight, and prepare for a rousing tournament.
Individual quizzers and teams of eight must pre-register by May 27. For more information and to register, call Kathie at: (250) 334-4608 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. $10 per person includes a ticket for all door prizes.
