Today was fun, I mean really fun. TClaps to Festifun and Burgundy for bailing us out on some of the more obscure questions. I knew today was going to be amusing when I couldn’t hear myself count due to the mumblechatter. Anytime you have Apache, Schrute, Burgundy, and Ponytail in one spot, it’s going to be enjoyable. Thank you Ryder for the opportunity to lead and thanks to the PAX for humoring me with my trivia game. Take what you learned today and impress your friends. 20/25 is pretty impressive!
