I am pleased to report that the Illinois State Historical Society trivia team--Marissa DeWeese, Larry Kienzler, Tom Wood, and Sam and Bill Furry--came in second place at the Sangamon County Historical Society Trivia night on Saturday, March 21. We lost out to the Nefarious Trivia Trolls of Table 3, who took an early lead, and like a group of hungry termites, cleared the forest of competition. It was not pretty, but it was decisive, although in the 7th round a five-way tie for third place put everyone on the offense. Congrats to all players, and to the Lincoln Troubadours, who were the big winners!
