The secret to the teams success
lies in a strict training program,
Nocera saidV
"We get here a little early and
drink three to four pitchers each
it loosens your subconscious,"
he said.
Sisson rarely has missed
"Knowledge is Good."
"I think IV missed two Tuesday
nights even including vacations
since Vh years ago," Sisson said.
Ed's Roommates also have been
successful in newer trivia tour
naments sponsored by P.O. Pears
and Chesterfield's.
P.O. Pear's, 322 S. 9th St., started
its first Trivial Pursuit tourna
ment in August. Last summer the
upstairs room where the compe
tition is held was often packed,
Assistant Manager Kirk Welsh
said. '"

FEDERALLY INSPECTED
Trivial Pursuit has been on
kind of a downsiide, but it's start
ing to pick up again in the winter
months," Welsh said. Only two
teams competed last Tuesday at
Pears. Welsh blamed the low turn
out on poor scheduling. "It's too
close to finals week," he said.
The game originally was organ
ized for people who didnt have
Trivial Pursuit at home, Pears Gen
eral Manager Ben Brett said. But
the friendly competition has be
come heated on occasion, Welsh
said.
Pears uses a regular Trivial
Pursuit board for its tournaments.
Questions are pooled from all
four editions of Trivial Pursuit. A
problem with using the regular
game is that some players have
the questions memorized, Welsh
said.
Winners of the current tour
nament at Pears, will receive $30
cash. Finals are Tuesday at 8 p.m.
The bar will start new competi
tion in the middle of February,
Welsh said.
Chesterfield's (245 N. 13th St.,)
tournament is the most recent
addition to Lincoln's trivia play
ing field. The bar sponsored its
first trivial competition four weeks
ago.
Entertainment manager
Michael Anderson admits that
the tournament is still in a plan
ning stage.
The first few weeks response
was poor, Anderson said. Teams
were actively recruited from UNL
and the Chesterfield's regular
crowd, he said. But things have
picked up a little recently, he
said.
Anderson said he spends about
four hours a week collecting
questions from textbooks, TJNL
professors and other sources
Some questions are taken from
Trivial Pursuit. Each question is
awarded a point value (between
one and five) according to its dif
ficulty. Winners must accumulate
35 points.
Chesterfield's weekly winners
each receive a free lunch. Ander
son is negotiating for a bigger
prize for the tournament finals,
which are Monday at 9 p.m
maybe even a trip for two on the
shuttle Discovery if NASA agrees
he said. '
Eventually, Anderson said, he
hopes to organize an all-university
tournament and inter-collegiate
trivia contests
There are no entry fees or cover
charges for any of the three bar
sponsored trivia tournaments.
The only eligibility requirement is
that team members be of legal
drinking age.
Best of all, no studying is requir
ed to compete in the trivia tourn
aments. The game has nothing to do
with intelligence," said Ward Rees
man, Chesterfield's competitor.
