Trivia Q&A: May 28

We had another good turnout of folks for our eighth edition of "Facebook Live Trivia Night." But when the fourth round ended, we had some technical difficulties, so we had to start a second time, and thankfully everyone bore with the problem and stayed. The overall winner was Brad Cook, one of my old Trivia regulars who is now back home in Melbourne, Australia. Brad rolled up 47 points and got his first ever win. We also had three other teams get 45 points, so it was close heading to the finish. Hopefully, everything goes off without a hitch next week. See you then!
