Thanks to all the Quizlings who braved the Greg Fishel-created drenching to come out and play trivia. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a wee bit and it wasn’t so much a drenching as a sprinkling – but Fishel does control the weather and I stand by that!

The night was hot but the trivia was cool … or was that the pizza was hot and the ice cream was cool. Did someone say “ice cream?” Settle down, Quizlings. It’s not summer yet.

But it won’t be long.
