Hump Day Stumpers, Pt. 2

4

May 3, 2012 by David Gillaspie

An ongoing program, Hump Day Stumpers held it’s own on Wednesday.

A new champion broke through by one point. A new Super-Team formed on the spot and lost by one point.

The team that wanted Beverly Hills 90210 questions swept the category.

The Copper Monkey in Beaverton rocked while Kangaroo Pouch Envy rolled with the big prize.

And the group GPA rose to the occasion.

These were the Wednesday night questions. A new batch for next Wednesday is already in the works.

    David, Your trivia efforts are entertaining albiet questonable. When I say questionable I am (of course) referring to the catagory “Beverly Hills 90210” questions. Where the hell did that come from?

    • David Gillaspie says:

      The segment on 90210 is part of the raffle after the game. The winning number gets to name their segment. Plan ahead for your win and what your segment will be. It is more fun than I planned on and gathering momentum.

    Sorry I missed this last night. I came down with bronchitis, 10 days ago, like I heard many in our area are suffering with. Stay well.

    • David Gillaspie says:

      Keep in mind, Linda, that answers are written so you don’t have to talk. If you come to the game sick, we can use bronchitis as a prize for last place. That’ll bring the scores up.
