The Winters Friends of the Library will host its (nearly) annual Quiz Show fundraiser on Friday, February 28th at 7 pm at the Winters Community Center. Teams of five people will compete in trivia questions in 12 categories and three rounds to win a $200 prize and the team name on the perpetual trophy.
To get ready for the competition, WFoL is hosting two practice rounds at the downtown tasting room of the Berryessa Gap Winery. The first is Monday, February 10 from 7 to 8 pm and the second session is on Sunday the 23 at the same time. All are invited to see what the game is all about. Popcorn will be provided, and you are welcome to buy yourself some of the Gap wine to enjoy while we practice.
Questions from previous years will be used to whet one’s appetite for the official quiz show on Feb 28. Questions such as: Who played the bad guy opposite Audrey Hepburn in Wait Until Dark? How many symphonies did Beethoven write? What light-hearted Lord of the Rings character is married to Goldberry in the novel but was left out of the movie? What street is between Abbey and Baker?
Signup forms for the Quiz Show on the 28th are available at the library along with rules and procedures. Forms are also available at the door the night of the event for an extra charge. The first two all-teen groups are sponsored by WFoL and will be free of charge to the participants.
The public is invited to come and watch for a $5 donation and to root for their favorite competitors. Snacks will be provided and beer and wine will be available for sale. All proceeds go to programs and materials for our local library. For more information, please call Rebecca Fridae at 795-4600.
(Answers to the questions above are- Alan Arkin, nine, Tom Bombadil, and Edwards.)
