April 22, 2009 - Trivia masters put on your thinking caps! Saturday, May 30 is the date for the fourth annual "Brains of Bakersfield" contest at California State University, Bakersfield's Icardo Center, benefiting the CSUB men's soccer team and Ricky's Retreat, a group home and community center for people with AIDS.
"Brains of Bakersfield" is based on the popular British trivia game "Quiz Night," commonly played in pubs and on television. The contest features teams of up to 10 people inside CSUB's Icardo Center who are challenged to answer tough questions ranging from sports trivia to scientific facts. The questions are timed and each team records its answers. Competition is fierce and fast paced.
The evening starts with a cocktail hour at 6:30 p.m. and the questions will begin to fly at 7 p.m. Dinner will be provided during halftime courtesy of Frugatti's Italian Eatery with Lengthwise Brewery sponsoring the cool refreshment for the evening.
The entry fee for the "Brains of Bakersfield" contest is $300 per team and the winning team will receive trophies naming them the "Brainy Bunch." The deadline to enter is May 25.
