TRR Trivia – March 2019

By Christy Howe
Last month’s trivia question was presented by Greg B, who spontaneously stepped in and came up with a question when the scheduled poser was unexpectedly absent.

Question:
1. How many people in the club have flat fender Jeeps?
2. Name each person who owns one (one point for each correct answer)

Answer:
1. 3
2. Gordon H, Greg B, Allen P

Gordon
Sorry Greg and Allen, I don’t have photos of your flat fenders!

This question, which ended up with a total of 4 possible points to be scored, proved popular with several old-timers in the club, but not so much so with some of the newbies. Congratulations to Allen P, the only person who knew the complete answer and scored all 4 points. (Greg, of course, knew the answer but had to recuse himself since he asked the question.) 3 points each were earned by Matt S, Christy H, Brian G, and Ray C. 2 points were earned by Chuck T, Paula K, James H, Vic W, Laddie H, John G, Adam M, and Gordy H. Elaine G and Andy H earned one point each with guesses of 3 people, but either no names or incorrect names.

Perhaps the most amusing answer was 5 Jeeps with the names of Santa, the Easter Bunny, John Jacob Jingleheimerschmidt, a unicorn, and a jackalope. Also of note was the guess of Larry, Moe, and Curly.

This month’s trivia question will be brought to you by Erin B.
