The second round of Trivia Night will be held on Friday, Aug. 5, and the Methodist Saints will be fighting to hang on to their title as trivia champions.

Teams are encouraged to sign up for the competition for their chance to take down the defending champs in a battle to prove who has the greatest knowledge of trivia.

Trivia Night will begin at 7 p.m. in the Cassville High School commons area. Trivia topics include sports, history, geography, literature, pop culture, movies, music, science and business.

The competition features four rounds of questions. While scores are being tabulated between rounds, team members will have the chance to answer optional winner-take-all bonus point questions.

At the end of the competition, a traveling trophy will be awarded to Cassville's new Champions of Trivia and medals will be awarded to individual team members. The new champions will be the team with the highest point total at the end of the night.

"This is a fun team competition and a great way to support the Cassville Education Fund," said Lisa Reid, event chairperson.

Dessert and refreshments will be offered throughout the evening.

Church groups, co-workers, clubs and trivia buffs are encouraged to form teams of up to eight members. Individuals are also welcome to participate and will be assigned to a pick-up team that night.

The fee to enter the competition is $15 per player or $120 per team. Interested participants should pre-register at the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce office at 504 Main St. in person or by calling 847-2814.

Spectators may observe the fun for a $5 admission fee. The event is open to anyone over the age of 12.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the Cassville Education Fund, which is a permanent endowment supporting academic programs at Cassville Schools. Each year, grants from interest on the fund are awarded to specific academic programs benefitting R-4 students.
