Virtual Trivia Night – Feb. 10th, 2021

The WMCC is hosting a virtual TRIVIA NIGHT. Test your knowledge of local climbing history with topics ranging from “Local Legends” and “Name that Route,” to “Gear Geeks.” The winning team will receive WMCC swag and prizes.

Compete in teams of 3-4! Message your dream team and decide on a team name. You will be asked what your team name is when registering so that we can pre-assign break out rooms. Don’t have a team in mind? Don’t be shy– register anyway and we will add you to a team that night!

Trivia Night is FREE, but please consider donating $5 to $10 if you can afford to. Your donation for this event will help cover the costs of prizes, pay for the new WMCC zoom account, and ensure that we run more fun events like this in the future.

All participants will have to register in advance to receive the zoom link.
