In 1979, the game Trivial Pursuit was created by Canadian Scott Abbott, a sports editor for The Canadian Press, and Chris Haney, a photo editor for Montreal's The Gazette. They created the game when they could not find all the pieces to their Scrabble game. Trivial Pursuit was released in 1982 and has been popular ever since.

This is a good example of trivia. Trivia can be defined as information of little importance. However, to those who enjoy trivia, it can be an exciting, fun, and competitive cranial exercise.

On Saturday, April 17th beginning at 7pm, Camp Courageous will host its 3rd Annual Trivia Night. The event will be held at the comfortable and atmospheric top floor of the Sill Barn at the camp located at 12007 190th St., Monticello, IA 52310. Participants can come as a group of 5-8 participants or come solo and join a group when you arrive. The cost of $10 per person is a donation to the non-profit, year round camp for people of all ages with disabilities.

Prizes will be given for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams. Door prizes and other games will also be played. Snacks will be available or you can bring  your own.
