The first trivia night on Jan. 31 was sold out, with all clamoring for a second evening of fun and interesting facts. John Roberts, Fort Collins native and traveler extraordinaire, will again host the event featuring 50 questions. Teams of six will compete for prizes, and light refreshments will be served. Admission for both Museum members and non-members is $10 per person, and advance reservations are required at Partial teams or full six-person teams are welcome with a two-step process. First, team members should make individual reservations. Second, an email with the names of team members must be sent to the Museum’s Outreach Coordinator at [email protected]. Individuals who register without a team will be joined with others on the night of the event. Registration will close at 5 pm Friday, Feb. 24.
