The 6th Annual Great Trivia Challenge is in the books!

The 6th Annual Great Trivia Challenge is in the book and what a night it was! Thank you to everyone who took part last night, and to those who supported the event through other means like donations for the silent auction, balloon pop prize and so much more. The Best Western Glengarry was packed with trivia buffs from across the region, once again supporting the Lotus Centre and their Girl Power Camps. We’ll have an announcement on our donation in the near future.

Before we get to the winners, what would the evening be without a balloon pop?

At the end of the evening, there were a few prizes to dish out. The Einstein Award for the last place team went to Sobeys Robie #2, pictured with Trivia Night committee members Andrew St. Coeur (left) and Mark Thibedeau (right).

Third place went to Burchell MacDougall, with 74 points.

After ten rounds and 100 questions, did we have a winner? Well, it took a tiebreaker! Insane Trivia Posse and AutoChoice tied with 77 correct answers. In the end, AutoChoice picked up the win!

2018 Teddy Bear Toss

The Bible Hill Kinsmen were on hand tonight for the 6th Annual Teddy Bear Toss, in partnership with the Truro Jr. A Bearcats. Truro scored early in the game against the Miramichi Timberwolves, and 319 stuffed animals were tossed on the ice! That’s a record and means nearly 1,500 have been collected at the event over the last six years. Once again, the stuffed animals will be distributed through the local Christmas Index Program. Thank you for taking part, and watch all of the fun below!
