Team ‘Trivia Newton John’ was just one of the many teams that took part in the annual Trivia Night last year. The popular event returns this year

So you think you know Campbell River?

Test your knowledge of Campbell River as the BC Ambulance Service Paramedics welcomes back Trivia Night.

This year’s event takes place on Saturday, Feb. 20 at the Campbell River Sportsplex (1800 S. Alder).

For the last 16 years, local paramedics have supported the Campbell River Hospital Foundation and community healthcare by putting on this popular event.

Trivia night is a fun-filled ‘fun’-draiser for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation and has raised more than $144,000 to support vital equipment purchases that support health care for Campbell River and the North Island.

The Trivia Challenge consists of four rounds of 20 questions, and no electronics – if your team is caught, it could cause a riot.

We’re joking, but be careful, it’s cutthroat and your neighbouring team will be watching.

A team consists of eight players; you can have less people, but no more than eight.

There is a cash bar and snacks will be available during the evening; however the evening has evolved into a gigantic pot luck at your table, with many tables trying to ‘out-snack’ their neighbours.

The cost is $20 per player ($160 per team).  There will also be a 50/50 draw and raffle tickets available with some fun prizes.

This is typically a sold out event.

To register, call the Hospital Foundation office at 250-850-2418 or email info@crhospitalfoundation.ca and don’t forget a funky team name.

Doors to the event open at 6 p.m. and play begins at 7 p.m. sharp.
