Wednesday September 12th, 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 – September 2018

Last month’s trivia question was presented by Allen P, who is holding strong with 6 points.
Question: Which production Jeep’s birth name disappeared in 1972?

Answer: Gladiator
Gladiator 1972
Allen posed a simple question but stumped the group on this one. Only one person, Vic W, came up with the correct answer.

The points total for 2018 now stands at Gordy H and Vic W tied at 10, Paula K with 9, Gary B and Mike M with 8, and several with 7 or less. This month’s trivia question will be brought to you by Vic W.
