Trivia Club is a community.

It’s the love of knowledge, mixed with competition, and over three years it has brought together teams and teams of participants that enjoy the pursuit of knowing things, while also learning along the way!

Now, since Trivia Club is a community, competition has spread across all of Trivia Club’s locations both former and current. Teams that have called one location home have visited other locals, and life has even led long-time teams to switch their base of operations. With even our newest location, at Lou Dawg’s Ryerson, having recently celebrated one year of competition in early March, each location has its own distinct history.

On April 13th, a Friday in 2012, Trivia Club debuted at Cardinal Rule. The show began at 10PM, and it ended late. The more things stay the same, the more they change. Since our one year anniversary, the Grand Championship has been awarded to the annual winners of a multi-night event at Cardinal Rule. With our trust in & take chip system, Sam Rockwell lost big on the first night of the first Grand Championship but would come back to win the inaugural event on the final night two weeks later. In 2014 it grew to a Grand Prix across four nights, including a night at Handlebar in Kensington Market, and a night at Hitch in Leslieville, but beginning and ending at Cardinal Rule. Battling against the only other team to make it to all four nights, The Sexy Dumpster Teens feat. Electric Mayhem defeated The Cunning Stunts.

Once again in 2015, the Grand Championship begins and ends at Cardinal Rule in celebration of Trivia Club’s Three Year Anniversary, but in 2015 the Grand Prix reaches across eleven nights of trivia all April long! The schedule is as follows:

APRIL 1st @ CARDINAL RULE
APRIL 7th @ LOU DAWG’S RYERSON
APRIL 8th @ CARDINAL RULE
APRIL 13th @ HITCH
APRIL 14th @ LOU DAWG’S RYERSON
APRIL 15th @ CARDINAL RULE
APRIL 21st @ LOU DAWG’S RYERSON CANCELLED
APRIL 22nd @ CARDINAL RULE
APRIL 27th @ HITCH
APRIL 28th @ LOU DAWG’S RYERSON
APRIL 29th @ CARDINAL RULE

With Cardinal Rule being the Original Home of Trivia Club, a proud tradition has arisen of record wins, and other notable accomplishments amongst the longest running teams. Cardinal Rule originated teams, such as The Cunning Stunts, The Electric Mayhem, and Team Name, first journeyed outside of home, with the Cunning Stunts wins at Handlebar, and Hitch during the 2014 Grand Championship Grand Prix breaking down walls. Team Name would also continue the broader competition, taking home a Golden VHS later in 2014 at Hitch, while members of Electric Mayhem would more subtly integrate themselves into an original Lou Dawg’s Ryerson team, The Bastards, former a ground work that would shape the 2015 Grand Championship team The Electric Bastards.

PETE, at first without a home base, would win with different teams and by himself, amongst most of Trivia Club’s locations, before settling in at the newly established Lou Dawg’s Ryerson trivia show. PETE would first compete against, and then later team with The Bastards. It was not The Bastards feat. PETE who would be the first to take home a Golden VHS away from Lou Dawg’s Ryerson however, but instead the people’s champions from that location… yes, I’m talking about Treasure Butt, whose victory at Trivia Club’s 100th edition at Cardinal Rule, and a second win a week later signified a potential sea change in the competition between the two locations.

That is, if the Cunning Stunts shift from being Cardinal Rule’s winningest team to become a threat to The Bastards dynastic ambitions at Lou Dawg’s Ryerson, didn’t do that already. The Stunts would go on to become the first team to win a Golden VHS at Cardinal Rule, Hitch, AND Lou Dawg's Ryerson! It was a feat soon matched by PETE on his own, but no other team as of yet (although Team Name is just a win at Lou Dawg's Ryerson away)!

Finally, in the week before April, a representative from Hitch finally played at another location… and not only did the Trusty Rumpet’s Westy team compete… but they won the Golden VHS at Cardinal Rule! It would seem that Hitch’s factions are not to be slept on, in this Grand Prix. I could talk of more teams, of the M. Night Shaym-Aliens and their quest for a fifth Golden VHS over three locations, The Unusual Suspects' mark for history (but always only during the colder months), of Cardinal Rule’s newest regulars in The Redacted! The community shifts, and changes, and the community evolves and expands!

More histrionics are for another time, however. Just have a drink with our Trivia Club host at a live event, and he will no doubt tell you more!

What does the 2015 GRAND CHAMPIONSHIP GRAND PRIX entail?

  • All ELEVEN Trivia Club events during the month of April are open to all competition.
  • Your team’s HIGHEST SCORE at Cardinl Rule, Hitch, and Lou Dawg’s Ryerson, will be added together.
  • Your team’s next highest score at ANY of our three locations will be added. All negative point totals will be valued as zero points.
  • The highest FOUR-PART score will win the GOLDEN VCR!

And your GRAND CHAMPIONS after the dust has settled on our 2015 GRAND PRIX, are..

THE ELECTRIC BASTARDS!

Russel Harder hosts Trivia Club at Cardinal Rule (5 Roncesvalles Ave) every WEDNESDAY, at Hitch (1216 Queen St East) every other MONDAY, and Lou Dawg's Ryerson (76 Gerrard St E) every TUESDAY!
