Lawrence hosts trivial pursuits

The Appleton Post-Crescent, January 14, 2001.

LU trivia: It's trivia time again at Lawrence University.

The 36th edition of the Midwest Trivia Contest begins at 10 p.m. Friday and runs until midnight Sunday.

Off-campus and on-campus teams will compete in matters of minutia. The contest will be broadcast on WLFM-91.1 FM, Lawrence's student-run campus radio station.

The most notable change for this year's contest may have to do with the calendar. Usually held the last weekend of January, the contest has been moved up one week this year to accommodate a scheduling conflict involving several of this year's trivia masters.

At 10 p.m. Friday, Lawrence President Rik Warch will open the contest and uphold tradition by asking last year's Super Garruda question: In the James Bond movie, "The World is Not Enough," name the work of contemporary sculpture, and the artist who created it, that appears in the beginning chase scene. Here's a head start: The answer is "Puppy" by Jeff Koons.
