All proceeds go to the school district.

What is the waitlist?

If registration is full, please consider joining our waitlist by clicking through on the registration page. There is no cost to be on our waitlist. All we need is your name and contact information. Should a table become available, you will hear from us.

Do I need to know all the team members at the time of registration?

No. Please compile your team quickly after you register and begin thinking of a name for your team and a theme and/or costumes for the event. We will reach out to you for names and email addresses. 

Does every participant need to register for a table?

No. Only one team member is required to purchase a table at the time of registration.  

Does my team need to have a theme or dress up for the event?

No. Although clothing is mandatory, teams are not required to have a theme or dress in costume, but there are advantages to getting creative. The Trivia Night staff will select and award prizes, including bonus points, to the teams who show the most spirit and creativity.  Details will be sent by email to registered team members.

Will alcohol be served at the event?

The event will be BYOB.  Trivia Night is meant to be fun, lively and festive and we certainly want all participants to have a great time. Please be respectful and on your best behavior. If you drink, please drink responsibly.
