The lodge is one street west of main, between 21st and 23rd on Pratt Street. We'll be in the north hall. Folks who arrive early will need to enter at the main entrance, take the 2nd left, off the lobby, enter the middle hall and continue north to the north hall. The front door is a key card door but there is a button for the bar tenders to open the door. Those that arrive early can prop the door open on east side of the north hall so folks can park on the east side of the building and enter through that door.

TRR Trivia – January 2018

Last month’s TRR trivia was presented by Greg B, who was in a second place tie for the most points.

1. How many military trailers does our club own?
2. Where do these trailers reside?

Answer: 1. Five
Answer: 2. Adam’s home, Gordy’s home, Greg’s home

Congratulations to Adam M and Allen P, who knew the correct answers and received two points each. Dave T also answered correctly with the number of 5 trailers for one point.

It was decided to start 2018 with a clean slate on the points tally, so everyone will begin the new year with 0 points.
And the winners are: Laddie H started strong, held his lead, and finished the year in first place with 6 points. Second place was a tie between Gordy H, Greg B, and Vic and Debbie with 4 points each.
Next month’s trivia will be brought to you by Allen P.
