Trivia Q&A: September 24

We had seven teams in for Trivia on Tuesday night. The number of teams was still on the light side, but many folks were on each team, so the crowd overall was a bit bigger. It was another winning night for our friends from DIMS, who rolled up 50 points and another victory, after falling out of first last week. Congrats to Ken, Michael and Darek on another fine win.

Second place went to Delaware's My Pants with 35 points, and third place went to In Town For the General Assembly, But Really For the Nachos with 32 points (and there also won for Best Team Name).
