Trivia masters from around Bakersfield will gather on Friday, April 13, to see who will be named the Brainy Bunch at the second annual Brains of Bakersfield Contest at California State University, Bakersfield's Icardo Center.

Brains of Bakersfield is based on the incredibly popular British trivia game Quiz Night, which is played in pubs and even on television. The contest features teams of up to 10 people who are challenged to answer tough questions ranging from sports trivia to scientific facts. The questions are timed and each team records its answers. A live scorecard will be projected on a screen in the Icardo Center.

The event will begin with a cocktail hour at 6 p.m., followed by the start of the contest at 7 p.m. Dinner will be provided during halftime courtesy of Caesar's Italian Delicatessen.

All proceeds from the contest will go toward CSUB soccer scholarships and the Diabetic Youth Foundation, which operates a camp for children with type-1 diabetes.

The entry fee for the Brains of Bakersfield contest is $300 per team. The winning team will be presented with trophies proclaiming them the "Brainy Bunch."
