Bible Trivia: We had a test run, a good time was had by all. We would like to move forward with it. We don’t want to limit it to an exact amount of players. We would like to go to a multiple week format. Dec 8, 22, Jan 5 first session. 7pm. For the winner, Anita will donate the cost (scholarship) for one weekend of his/her choice, for a team member or applicant for the first winner. An alternative could be a gift card of their choice. Dan will put something on the Facebook site about this. Anita thinks they should be able to earn extra points to invite a new person that hasn’t attended a weekend before. They would get an extra 10 points if someone joins the trivia that hasn’t attended a weekend before.
