GLT Trivia Night

 GLT Night Trivia Card

Where: The Castle Theatre, Downtown Bloomington, IL
Time: 7:00-10:00PM
Cost: $200/team of 8, $25/individual player


The 2014 GLT Trivia Night was a night of fierce competition, good natured "trash talking" and general hilarity. The GLT staff had a ball, too. Big thanks to our über-volunteers/event co-organizers Janet Moore, Karla & Mark Huffman, Isaac & Krista Gaff, and assorted additional helpers. We are already looking at ways to make 2015 even better. Start thinking about which of your brainiac friends would get your team into the winners' circle.

Here's how it works: teams of 8 compete for valuable prizes and bragging rights. Questions may have something to do with GLT or NPR, but will mostly be "general knowledge". There will be 5 rounds of 12 questions each. After each round, answers are tallied and we'll announce the winner of that particular round. The team with the highest score overall at the end of 5 rounds wins the Noble Noggins Award!

But, here's the thing - this is a fundraiser for the station, so we're also awarding the Golden Tote Bag Award to the most generous team. How are you the most generous? Several ways:

  • One of the GLT staff will serve as your celebrity waiter for the evening to bring you libations from the cash bar. They'll be working hard, so tip them generously.
  • When your team comes to a dead end on a question, you can advance your cause by buying a clue or paying a GLT staffer to give their best guess.
  • Finally, there will be a limited number of Super Clues available for purchase. You're guaranteed the right answer, but they get snapped up in a hurry and when they're gone, they're gone.

If you just can't seem to get the right answers, there is a final award for the group with the best team spirit. We encourage you to come up with an incredibly clever name, and go all out with costumes, table decorations, and general silliness. You are welcome to bring in snacks, but no beverages please. No outside alcohol is allowed. There will be a full cash bar available and bottled water on the tables.

Get a team together and join the fun. Teams are 8 people. If you are not purchasing all of your tickets together, be sure you know the name of your team and the team captain. You'll need to list both when ordering tickets. If you don't have a full team of 8, that's fine. We'll combine groups or singles to fill a table.
