“Winnipeg 1913 Trivia Hunt”
The Fort Garry Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre and Slixer Entertainment come together to celebrate the Fort Garry’s Centennial in the beautiful city of Winnipeg. Join us as we take you on trivia journey through Winnipeg’s storied past dating back to 1913.
You will be challenged with a series of Trivia Quizzes tailored by Winnipeg’s own Jim Blanchard. A monthly Trivia Quiz will be emailed to registered participants each month starting February 11, 2013 with the final “head to head” in December 2013. Your journey will be tracked as you embark on this challenging and fun contest open to all. Monthly prizes will be awarded and will include tickets to 2014 Juno Awards in Winnipeg, Taylor Swift concert tickets, “I Have All Day” packages at Ten Spa, Pajama Parties and Sunday brunch parties at the prestigious Fort Garry Hotel and much, much more. The Fort Garry Hotel will announce the overall winner to the most knowledgeable candidate at a wrap-up party in December 2013.
Jim Blanchard, author of Winnipeg 1912 and Winnipeg’s Great War, will be writing the Winnipeg 1913 Trivia Hunt questions and he promises to make them fun and “not too hard” to answer. Some questions will involve getting out and searching for spots around town and for others the answers will require a little Googling. There will be ten questions a month and each month will have a special theme, such as “Famous Residents of the Fort Garry”, “Ghosts and Spiritualists” and “Booze and Prohibition”. So start boning up on the history of our city and our grandest hotel.
Ida Albo, Managing Partner at Fort Garry Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre shares, “The game is an excellent way to learn something you may not know about Winnipeg’s history, and interesting facts about the Fort Garry. We wanted a celebration that is accessible to the public, and the game allows us to include everyone that wants to celebrate with us. There are no costs associated with participating, so sign up online at www.winnipeg1913.com and join us for this once-in-a-century trivia adventure.”
