Those of you who are at Trivia Nationals, if you would like to get together tonight (Friday) at 7 in The Lounge. At least a few of us will be there!

Sorry I couldn't make it; Cold in Herre had our first trash matches then.

No problem. We at least got to chat a bit (very cool story about your brother). With an event like this, the odds of finding a time when all would be free is nigh unto impossible... unless we waited for the 5x5 finals :mrgreen:

If it’s ok with everyone who was there, my wife took a few pictures of our get together I could post. (Some of us already have our real picture as our board avatar anyways)

I’m terrible with remembering names, be they user names or real ones, so apologies if anyone is misidentified, will correct:

Image

Clockwise from bottom left: morbeedo, hbomb1947, Woof, Armandillo, dhkendall

Image

Since hbomb1947 was almost completely cut off in the top pick, this shows him better but cuts me off.

The man in the white t-shirt is reddpen. Unless, of course, since I don't know armandillo, he is reddpen's identical twin.

Even if I had a long-lost identical twin, that story wouldn't match ElendilPickle's about meeting a brother she never knew about.

These were taken as I was inhaling a pint so Woof, morbeedo and I could bolt to the noodle place before my 5x5 matches began at 8:30. Hate to drink and run...
