A Great Ending by Ken Offenther and Colleen Austin!! Ending to what, some of you may ask??? ANSWER: Ending to Ken’s Trivia Show conducted as a part of the 100th Anniversary Celebrations!!
For the final Show at Bradenton, the question was: What important event happened in 1960? Contestants were from left to right: Cecile Messier, Jay Fitzpatrick, Wendy Griffin and Steve Biagi.
1-the first state tournament in Bradenton? 2- the first preview book? 3- the first hof class was inducted 4- mike marquis graduated from elementary school on his 3rd try — the correct answer was 3.
Ken and Colleen made special thanks of a dvd that was given to the committee to give as a prize in shuffleboard trivia!! It is called The do’s and dont’s of shuffleboard etiquette – [subtitled] please; silence on the courts! — The film was produced by Earl Ball. (This evoked major laughter)!!!!
We gave 2 prizes to winner Wendy Griffin and 1 prize to the other players. Pic of Wendy on your left.
