Do you miss life outside of your home? Be social, be smart, and join us on Zoom for an online version of CRT's well-loved Trivia Night!
It's a brave new world out there, and it's about to get smarter!
CRT's normal Trivia Nights are a fundraiser for CRT's Youth Programs. Played in teams of 4, we answer questions, participate in visual and music rounds, and engage in healthy brainy competition with our friends and neighbors.
And we see NO REASON to stop that now!
On Thursday, April 16th at 7pm, join us on Zoom for an online Trivia Event!
There are some adjustments that need to be made to make it work. Here are the details—don’t be afraid. You’re smart enough for Trivia—you can conquer the digital world!
1. We will be asking and answering trivia questions, working in teams, having a visual and music round—all of the things that you love. But we will be participating for the love of trivia, not for the (undeliverable!) prizes. As a result, we will not be charging an admittance fee for this event. Free Trivia Night!
If you would like to donate what you door fee would have been anyway ($5) because you know these events are a fundraiser for CRTYP and art programs are struggling now, you can visit PayPal and send your donation to Production@cortlandrep.org. Not necessary! But always appreciated. 😊
2. We will be holding the live trivia event on Zoom! If you haven’t used it yet, Zoom is a virtual meeting room that uses your computer’s camera and microphone to see and hear you and put you in a “room” where you can see and hear others.
When you notify me that you will be attending, I will send you the invitation link to participate. You do NOT need to have a Zoom account to participate! But you will need to pre-register for the event to keep things safe and tidy—and the invitation I send you will detail how to do it. It’s easy!
3. You will need to tell me ahead of time that you will be attending so that I can send you the invitation and get things organized. If you are planning to attend, please send an email to CRTTrivia@gmail.com. The email should include your name (and anyone else in your home who might be playing on your team of 4 players), and the names of the other people who will be playing on your team. Each COMPUTER that will be signed into Zoom to play will need its own invitation, so each computer needs to send an email.
a. For example, Jane and Jack want to be on a team with Linda and Arnold. Jane and Jack live in one house and will be sitting next to one another on the couch, using one computer. Jane and Jack should send me one email that details that they will be playing and that they would like to be grouped on a team with Linda and Arnold. I will email an invitation to Jane/Jack’s email address. Linda and Arnold, however, do not live together and will be playing from different computers. Linda and Arnold each need to send me an email for an invitation, and their emails both should detail that they will be playing with Jane and Jack.
4. I will be preassigning you on your teams into what Zoom calls “Breakout Rooms.” So we’ll all meet together in the main room. For the regular rounds, I will send you all into your team breakout rooms and then send you a file with the trivia questions on it, giving you 10 minutes to complete the questions. I’ll then bring you back to the main room, and we’ll go over the answers.
IMPORTANT: Because I am one human quarantined here (my hubby will be on child duty!), I will be using a Self-Grading honor system for this trivia night! At the end of each round, your team will tell me how many points you earned and I will put it on the scoreboard. Remember, this is all in fun! No prizes, so self-grading can work for this event. Competitive language and team ribbing still allowed. 😊 For the visual and music rounds, you will stay in the main room with me to hear/see all of the questions and then will retire to your breakout rooms to discuss with your teams. It would be in your best interest to have paper/writing utensils available for this Trivia Event. But the drinks are free (in your fridge!)
I hope that gives us enough detail about how this special Trivia event will work! I can host up to 50 teams in my breakout rooms, so invite your friends to play! We are all looking to be social and to engage right now. The more the merrier!
Remember, to play, email CRTTrivia@gmail.com. For general questions, you can email Kris (me!) at CRTProgramManager@gmail.com.
