I was on the K99 Trivia bowl team again over the weekend.  We didn’t do very well, but the good news is the ChildSafe Trivia bowl raised thousands of dollars to help victims of child abuse in Northern Colorado.   At least 2 or 3 of us are fairly bright (snicker, snicker), but here is how we lost:

The K99 team finished with zero point, because the Trivia Bowl was kind of like Jeopardy.

We wagered all of our points on the final question and we got it wrong.  The question was, “How many future presidents signed the Declaration of Independence?”  We all knew Thomas Jefferson signed it because he wrote it.  We knew John Adam signed it because we saw the mini-series, but then a couple of us thought maybe James Madison signed it too. We were wrong.  Oh yeah, we missed several other questions too.

The K99 Team is made up of 4 people: Josh Kukus (The guy sitting at the front desk when you come to pick up prizes at K99). Dave Jensen (our assistant Program Director and fill in whenever anyone is gone),   Mark Brewer (Dave’s Buddy), and me (Good Morning Guy Todd Harding).

So who did win the ChildSafe Trivia Bowl?  It was group of very smart folks that called themselves “Gray Cell”.  One of the members of the team was State Senator Bob Bacon.

Between the entry fee, the silent auction (I just got outbid on a Keurig®), and the Quilt Raffle, thousands of dollars were raised to help victims of sexual abuse.

Raffle tickets for the “Western Stars” quilt were sold at the Trivia Bowl. The quilt was at designed and quilted by Sherry Reynolds, a board member of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Foundation.

The ChildSafe quilt drawing will take place on Sunday, August 19th in the ChildSafe booth at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Festival. Winner need not be present to win.

Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00.
