| Feb 17: Trivia Ted's Quiz Night
Team Dolphin II would like to challenge all KYC members (new and old, sailors and non-sailors) to participate in the Annual KYC Quiz Night now to be held on Friday, February 17 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.. Mark your calendars and get your crew all pumped up for an evening that always proves to be entertaining, fun, informative and often somewhat humiliating for all but the winning contestants! We are pleased to once again have the considerable skills, depth of knowledge and crowd controlling expertise of Past Commodore Ted Ison as our Quizmaster. Questions will be sailing related as well as of general interest – something for salty dogs and landlubbers alike! Dolphin II crew members are now scrounging for prizes to be awarded (hopefully) to the top 3 teams. We encourage members to form teams (max 6 members/team) based on boat crew, family associations, or simply smart friends that you think will know the answers. There will be lots of opportunity to scramble together a team from those at the bar, but to help the Dolphin II crew please submit your team entry to Greg McNab no later than February 15 so we can make the appropriate arrangements.
Remember…it is not what you know ...or who you know ...it is if you know someone that thinks they know all the answers…and you can get them on your Trivia Team!
