Charlotte Harbor Rotary Dinner and Trivia Challenge Event at Laishley Crab House on December 14th, 2011
The Charlotte Harbour Rotary Club in Punta Gorda held their monthly trivia challenge dinner at Laishley Crab House last evening on December 14th10, 2011. The event is the third one held this year and is the brain child of Charlotte Harbour Rotary member Darryl Keys who brought forth the idea from across the pond in his native country of England. Darryl served in a rotary club in his previous stomping grounds and the trivia challenge was an event that gained a strong following in England, he contacted his previous rotary club members whom he still stays close with to this day and received their blessing to continue the tradition is his new surroundings in the city of Punta Gorda. Darryl organizes the event partnering with Laishley Crab House to serve as the venue and writes all material used for each events questions and answer styled operation. Host duties were performed by fellow rotary member Steve Carter of the Carter Insurance Agency while his son Nick Carter ran sound and music duties for the event. Darryl Keys was in charge of scorekeeping duties each round so that standings could be provided to participants throughout the course of the evening adding some fuel to the competitive yet friendly environment . The trivia challenge consisted of a eight round format with ten questions per category. Each round focused on ten questions under a parent category including an audio round where participants had to figure out the origin of pop culture based audio clips.
It was the fourth event put on by the Charlotte Harbour Rotary Club and last nights event benefited the Military Heritage Museum. The Military Heritage Museum is located at 1200 West Retta Esplanade in the left front of Fishermens Village in Punta Gorda, Florida. They are open seven days a week from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM on Monday through Saturday and from noon until 5:00 PM on Sunday. The Museum is headed by Executive Director Kim Lovejoy and President Merilynn Smith Mooney who were both participants in the Trivia Challenge last night. The Military Heritage Museum received a two hundred and seventy six dollar check to fund operations and overhead of the museum from the Charlotte Harbor Rotary Club last evening. The museum will also be the beneficiary to the next two Charity Trivia Challenges of January and February 2012.
