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.

1. What primary color was the CJ7 that Mindy drove in the TV series “Mork and Mindy” set in Boulder?
2. What primary color was the CJ7 that Daisy Duke drove in the TV series “Dukes of Hazzard”?
3. What primary color was the J10 pickup that was driven by the storm chasers in the movie “Twister”?
4. What primary color is the Boulder Ranger district’s JK Rubicon?
5. What primary color is the Jeep in the TRR logo patch?
6. What primary color was the Jeep in this year’s Super Bowl TV commercial, titled “Anti-Manifesto” that featured a jeep crossing a stream, then climbing up a cascading waterfall?
Tie Breaker: What two-letter jeep model was it?

1. Blue
Mork and Mindy
2. White
Dukes of Hazard
3. Yellow
4. White
Forest Service
5. Blue
TRR Jeep
6. Red
Tie Breaker: JL

This question was worth 7 points, including the tie breaker. Congratulations to Allen P and Paula K for earning 4 points each on this question. Several others earned 3 points each: Gordy H, Greg B, James H, Laddie H, Larry M, Linda T, Mike M, Steve, and Mike C.

Points are being racked up in 2018 with a couple of multiple-point questions. Vic W, Gordy H, and Paula K are tied for first place with 8 points each; James H and Mike M each have 6; Gary B and Richard H each have 5; and several have 4 or less.

This month’s trivia will be brought to you by Paula K, who is tied in first place with 8 points. Paula is giving new meaning to the license plate frame statement, “Silly Boys, Jeeps are for Girls” now that she’s tied for first-place!
