Wednesday June 13th, 6:30pm to 9:00pm - Meeting, Moose Lodge #1548, 2200 Pratt Street, Longmont, CO 80501. Open to all members and guests.

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 – June 2018

Last month’s trivia question was presented by Paula K, who was tied in first place with 8 points.

1. What does “CJ” stand for?
2. What was the Jeep amphibious version called?

1. Civilian Jeep
2. GPA, where G=government, P=80” wheelbase, and A=amphibious; also nicknamed SEEP (for Sea Jeep)

Congratulations to Gordy H and Gary B for earning the two possible points on this question. Several others earned one point for knowing what CJ means, but the second question was a stumper for most. The most popular guesses involved the word “duck”.
The points total for 2018 now stands at Gordy H with 10, Vic W with 9, Mike M and Paula K with 8 each, Gary B with 7, several with 6 or less.
This month’s trivia will be brought to you by Gary B.
