MasterMind! continues through the summer


MasterMind! trivia activities are alive and well during the summer months. For example, new sets of trivia questions are available each week in the Sports Club coffee area and the Ranch House coffee area. Also, warm up trivia questions are usually distributed on Thursday nights about 30 minutes before the weekly contest in the Tack Room.

Mark your calendars. Tentatively, the autumn 2019 MasterMind! Tournament of Champions will be held on October 22 in the Laredo Room. It is a “Jeopardy” style event with the winner claiming a trophy, prize and bragging rights about being a MasterMind! Tournament champion. Details about the October event will be coming soon, but please start thinking about entering as a contestant. All MasterMind! events are free to both contestants and spectators.

Also, please visit for sample trivia questions and information about various events. Any questions about MasterMind! can be emailed to [email protected].
