The first Buckys Trivia Extravaganza, sponsored by M&I Bank, will take place on Saturday, May 1, on the main floor of the Kohl Center. The evening will start with a reception at 6 p.m., followed by the friendly trivia competition at 7 p.m.
Buckys Trivia Extravaganza is a trivia contest designed to help raise money for Badger athletics. It will be played in teams of eight people. Ten rounds of trivia will be conducted with categories ranging from fanciful to obscure. There will be questions for everyone with varying degrees of difficulty. Each member of a team will find categories and questions that they can help the team with.
During the evening each team is ensured help from a UW celebrity for at least one of the 10 rounds. Team scores will be tabulated, posted and announced after each round by master of ceremonies and Badger radio color commentator Mike Lucas.
The event will feature door prizes and will have grand prize packages for the top three teams. In addition, the first and second place teams will be brought out onto the field/court and introduced at a Badger home football and basketball game, respectively.
