JGTAI Scores

autumn-invitational

Here ya go, our updated scores! Shout out to There’s No I in… who earned 8 points for being the only team to attend my comedy show. AHEM. (cough). AHEM. The NEXT one is November 20th and I would HATE for the rest of you to miss it.

There are still four weeks left to earn points, so if you’re not in the green, you soon can be: there’s a brand new Facebook picture challenge. It’ll be fun to see pics of you guys in the 90s.

Still working on a venue for the big event, but I’ve got a real promising lead for something I think is going to be Ultra-Fun. I hope to announce it on Monday.

Time Change for Quizzo Tonight

Action starts tonight at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15, as usual. But due to the Sixers season opener, we’re going to push the Founding Fathers quiz back to 9:15 p.m. Might also be a bit hectic with seating. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up to be patient as we make the switchover. See ya tonight!
