It's hard to believe it's already that time of year again...the Yukon Quest and Iditarod are just around the corner! As such, chat and trivia are back!

Join us on Sunday, January 26th at noon Alaska Time. Chat the first hour and play trivia the second. We will be in our regular old chat room but will be discussing a possible (future) change. I believe one or more of the mods will have more to say on that matter at that time.

Luv & I will be hosting trivia together. The subject is IDITAROD KENNELS. Prizes for first, second and third. Hope to see you there!

CHAT & TRIVIA REPORT (for 1/26)

Both went really well and we all had a lot of fun! It was nice catching up with everyone during chat; it appears we've all been staying pretty busy. Thirteen of us showed up for chat, trivia or both:

breeze
fladogfan
flowerpower
heidi
jeanieb
libby the lab
luv
mira
moose
sc-race-fan
sugarriver
suldalsxpressen
tanglefoot

As usual, we chatted the first hour and then Luv and I started trivia. The subject was Iditarod Kennels, and we alternated asking questions that asked for either a musher's name or the name of a kennel. Jeanieb's autocorrect provided much entertainment during this time. It seemed no matter what she typed, Autocorrect was going to 'correct' it!!! :lol: It got pretty hilarious. At one point I asked the following question:

Team Ollie began over a decade ago in Massachusetts but later relocated to Alaska. The husband educated as an electrical engineer but always dreamed of running the Iditarod. The wife enjoys running the puppies. Name the musher running in the 2020 Iditarod.

Jeanieb attempted to answer Lev Shvarts, but Autocorrect wasn't havin' it and answered Leg Shavers! See screenshot!* :lol: *You must be signed in to see the screenshot.
And on and on it went like that for the entire trivia! :lol: I do hope Autocorrect shows up to play again!

With 6 points (and despite Autocorrect's 'help'), the winner was JEANIEB!!! Congrats!!! 8-)
With 3 points each, FLOWERPOWER and MIRA tied for second. We didn't have a tie-breaker because Mira had to leave a little early to get to bed.
Prizes were offered to the top three.

Here's the rundown:

jeanieb 6 pts
flowerpower 3 pts
mira 3 pts
breeze 1 pt
libby 1 pt
sugarriver 1 pt

Congrats to all who played and thanks to Luv for doing trivia with me. Speaking of Luv, those who stayed til the end (after trivia) were treated to Luv's sweet story about Rocky, the dog she got from Karen R. Hope to see more of y'all next time!
