Second Annual Rookies’ Night Out Pub Quiz

Many new members have joined the Club this past year. Instead of just calling them “Hey you!” we think it’s time (as in Irish time) that we properly introduced them to the Club. What better way to do that than a night with The Wolfetones?! So, rookies and veterans alike, please join us on Thursday Feb 26th, 2015 for the Second Annual Rookies’ Night Out Pub Quiz in Trinity Hall at 7pm sharp (as The Wolfetones start at 8:30pm). The quiz is aimed at helping the rookies get to know the Club and the game. Sample questions include:

  • Why are GAA shorts so tight?
  • Match the member to their celebrity doppleganger
  • Who the hell is Fionn Mac Cumhaill?
  • What does steps mean?

There’ll also be some optional challenges that may or may not require a strong drink with a splash of embarrassment.
 
Rookies are anyone who joined since January 1, 2014. It’s a fun night! And we need veterans too!
Veterans are anyone who is not a rookie, even if they have only been in the club for 2 years.
 
Prizes include, but are not limited to:

  • First Place – $50 gift card from Trinity Hall
  • Second Place – a kiss from a Rose
  • Last Place – a good kick up the arse

 
Rookies are allowed to ask a veteran for the answer but they can’t ask the same veteran twice unless the question is How big is an official Gaelic field?, in which case everyone should ask Emmett several times.
 
Smartphones and stupid phones are allowed but, as veteran help will be required for most of these questions, we need as many veterans to come out as possible. Veterans, please wear your club jersey or GAA colors so rookies know who to ask!

New Member Social – Saturday, February 7th 2015

Now that the season’s training is up and running, we’d like to show the Irish tradition of céad míle fáilte or one hundred thousand welcomes and have a night where we interact away from the gym and the field to welcome all of the new members.
 
We are also saying farewell to one of our existing members, Matt Norman, who is relocating to Chicago.
 
So join us at the Dubliner on Saturday night at 9pm.
