I am amazed there are not more trivia guys that get in on this. I can’t wait for the questions of the week.
You do a great job on these.

I won a few weeks ago so figured I would not participate for a bit. I agree though, people will spend all day at the Christmas party trying to win something when they could participate in this and relatively quickly get $50.

Agree. Same here, I hold back from some as well. It would be nice if more participated.

Thanks again, Marc. :slight_smile:

Maybe I won’t take the prize if I win. Nobody else is playing. I really don’t know why. There are real good questions here.

I hold back also. Where are all the guys we see once at year at the Christmas Party??
These “Questions of the Week” are a great learning tool and also teaches how to search answers on the internet for those that do not know the answers. It can’t get much easier!
Thanks to Marc and the guys for doing this. These QOW take time to put together and we appreciate it!

Ditto on the giving others a chance to participate, Plus 50 bucks is 50 bucks.
