Question of the Week

Wilmer

The First Battle of Bull Run was fought on this Virginia man’s farm, so he decided to move his family to the small town of Appomatox to get away from the war. Four years later, on April 9th, 1865, Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant in his house. He would say that the War “began in my front yard and ended in my front parlour”. Who was he?

Down Home Country Week

downhome

Howdy, y’all! Time for a little country quiz. We’ll have questions on Southern rock, Southern cuisine, Southern literature, etc. So get your boots on and let’s boot, scoot, boogie, and answer a few trivia questions while we’re at it.

JGTSpI Scores After Four Weeks

springvitational.jpg

Here are our scores after 4 weeks. Inkspot has a big lead, as they’ve been active on twitter and with physical challenges. Teams in yellow would earn an invite if the season ended today, and teams in blue would still have some work to do. But the season doesn’t end today…it’s a ten week season, so there’s plenty of time if you need to earn points.

Aq uick way to earn your team points: write about attending quizzo on twitter. Anybody on your team who does that earns their team a point for the week (be sure to include @johnnygoodtimes in the tweet so I can see that you wrote it.) And it has to say something. You can’t just post your team name

And this week will be Double Points Week on Wednesday. So a big week for teams at the Vous and Black Sheep. Easiest places to get a win? Hard to call any of them easiest anymore, but the most parity seems to exist at North Star, Sidecar, O’Neals, and Industry, so those are probably your best bets.

Furthermore, I posted a week or two ago that teams could earn points by posting pictures of themselves photobombing someone on the quizzo facebook page…nobody has taken advantage of that one yet. It’s still available for one more week.

And this week is Down  Home Country Week…anyone wearing cowboy boots, camouflage, a large belt buckle, or a straw hat earns their team a point.
