What is Trivia Unplugged? Presented by CREATE Portage County, Trivia Unplugged is an old-school trivia contest with a twist. Competitors are challenged to rely on their own brain power and teamwork to answer questions - no internet, books, or notes of any kind are allowed. Quizmaster Jim "The Oz" Oliva will host the event, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point campus radio 90FM. The Mid-State Sisters of Skate roller derby team will collect trivia answers, Rockman's Catering will have a buffet available for purchase, and participants have the chance to win prizes by entering the Booze Raffle.
The contest starts promptly at 3:00 p.m. with a maximum of ten team members allowed at each table in the competition arena. Alternate team members may be substituted at any time between questions. A team member leaving the competition room must hand off his or her badge to a substitute team member. No one may enter the competition area without a badge. Questions will be projected on a screen. Teams discuss answers among themselves without divulging information to other teams. The music played will help obscure voices.
Each question will last the length of one song. When one song is over answer sheets will be collected, the answer announced, and the next question will be asked. There will be a break at the end of each hour. During the break, the team ranking will be announced. At the end of the contest there will be a final rundown of the teams. Trophies will be awarded at that time.
Reminder: NO electronic devices (including cell phones) are permitted in the competition area. It is recommended that phones and other electronic devices are left in vehicles or with a spectator. Players may leave the competition area at any time to check messages, but may not re-enter until the current question has ended. No paper, pens, or pencils, other than what is provided by CREATE, is allowed.
