Community Quiz Bowl coming in April

Another Community Quiz Bowl is coming your way this April!

Last year’s event was a hoot, with four teams squaring off and sitting with their hands poised over the buzzers. Along with some brilliant answers, a number of flubs and a lot of laughter, the teams answered 20 questions in each round, followed by a “lighting round” of varying difficulty.

How would YOU have fared? Here is a sampling of a few of the questions: What river flows through Oklahoma, OK? What is the name of Dagwood’s dog? Who invented the sewing machine (not Singer!).

The Quiz Bowl was a fundraiser for the Beaver Island Community School’s National Honor Society and assisted the group in putting on game nights for the younger students and other NHS activities. It’s a great cause and great fun for both participants and spectators.

Another Community Quiz Bowl is planned at the school for Monday, April 22, starting at 5:30 p.m. The tourney will consist of eight teams, with 4 – 6 members on each team. Four players will compete at a time, but you can sub in for the lightening round or take turns playing the various rounds. The donation is $15 per player.

Get your award winning team together and reserve your spot by call the school 448-2744 or emailing NHS advisor Connie Boyle (
