The Daily Iowegian

---- — On Saturday evening Nov. 9, the local Appanoose County Historical Society held another trivia night fund raiser at the Majestic Ballroom in Centerville.

The Intrepid team lead by captain Justine Heffron came from behind in dramatic fashion to repeat as winners of the event.

More than 175 people attended the contest that was organized by curator Lisa Eddy with help from several volunteers.

There were 16 teams in the competition and each team was made up of 10 people. The teams were asked 100 trivia questions over the course of the evening. The questions were from a range of categories that included music trivia, movies, local architecture and sports trivia.

After the first report of scores that night the Intrepid team was in sixth place but they slowly moved up the score board as the questions were given. After the ninth round the Intrepid team finally took the lead and held that position through the tenth and final round of questions.
