    Team Trivia Night at OOYC

    Phil and a few friends have written a "Team" Trivia Contest.  In this concept, questions are read in categories of 3 questions and an allotment of points are wagered in each round on each question decided upon by the group.  The Answers are timed, loud(er) music is played while answers are collected and recorded.

    There will be a $2 (change from 5) per person entry fee, and will help to fund prizes for the winning teams.

    Register your team now.  Each team needs to be led by one of the groups invited, however team members can be from the greater Oak Orchard community.  It would be great to see you all here.  We don't need names of guests, but it would be great to have an approximate number.  Everyone in attendance will sign in at the door.

    Doors open at 5:00 PM.  The bar is scheduled to be open from 5:00 PM through 9:00 PM.  The game will begin promptly at 6:30 PM and will run about an hour and a half in duration.  Guarenteed fun and laughter for all.

    Note:  If we get a good response for turn out, we may ask our kitchen to be open for foods like wings, clams, mozzarella stickes, and even personal pizzas.  That decision will be made later.  This announcement will be updated.
