It's Trivia Nite at next meeting

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays - It's Trivia Nite at our December 11, 2013 meeting In what is now an annual tradition for the December meeting, Trivia Night will be held on December 11 and just the way you like it - loud and crazy. So form your teams, and make a noisemaker! For the benefit of new members, this means that, instead of listening to a speaker, you will be challenged to answer a broad range of questions related to Amateur Radio, a la Reach for the Top. As per usual, you can either play individually, or else form teams of any manageable size (max 4 players). Don't forget to come up with a goofy radio-related name for your team (how about "One Antenna with Three Radials"?). Prizes will be given to teams who answer the most questions correctly and to runners-up. Each individual or team will need to bring a noisemaker of some kind, in order to signal the moderator when you have a right answer. Your noisemaker could be as primitive as a boy scout whistle or as complex as a buzzer circuit. The more homebrew it is, the better; that way you can enter it in the mini homebrew contest afterwards. If you forget your noisemaker, don't worry, one will be provided.The evening promises to be great fun as always. Janice Neelands, VA3PAX
