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 – February 2019

By Christy Howe
Last month’s trivia question was presented by the author, who forgot to ask for a volunteer to pose the first question of the year, so she took it on herself.

Question: Which part has been universal to all Jeeps until the JL model was released?
Answer: Lug nuts. All Jeeps were 1/2x20 until the JL, which is M14X1.50 (metric).

The author was mistakenly thinking that this question would prove easy and would start several people off with a point for 2019. When no one turned in a correct answer, a hint was given, resulting in a correct answer and one point each for Vic W, David G, Mike M, John G, Elaine G, Allen P, Paula K, Gordon H, and Gary B.

In the initial round, the answers that most amused the author were “Jeep” stamped into the sheet metal (does this qualify as a “part”?) and unheated steering wheel.
This month’s trivia question will be brought to you by Erin B.
