 I n our second Trivia Club event back at Hitch for 2017, we knew that we would have fun with potentially new and certainly familiar faces at our east-end home, but what we didn't expect was a RECORD BREAKING night! Yes, with that on your mind... let's jump into it, shall we? 

In our first round of Trivia Classic it was Girls Gon Git It #NASTYWOMEN who had marched into the lead! This, an all women collection of Tiny Tim's... alum had a four point lead on Hitch's reigning Golden VHS Champs Wookiee of the Year! One and a half point behind the Wookiee of the Year were the male contingent of Tiny Tim's... on this night known as Tiny Trump's Titillating Tanned Toupee of Terror (We're the best. Everyone says so.) and therefore suddenly the bad guys. Finally, the crowd was rounded out by The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes, the second-winningest solo participant in Trivia Club history!

Game Show Games, beginning with Countdown Takedown, saw Girls Gon Git It use that game theory to go one over Wookiee of the Year and grab the TOP TEN as a result! Yeap, they got it. Didn't even feel bad about it either. Then in Survey Says it was the Tiny Trumps... who were the only team blanked on our second Game Show Game, though no one walked away with the top ten, The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes still were able to enjoy an eight point boost! Finally, in C-C-Combo Breakdown it was a competitive battle back and forth, which gave us a showdown that saw the Tiny Trumps fall first, followed by Wookiee of the Year, before The Good Folk soon followed! Not happy with the points they had won, Girls Gon Git It locked in TWO MORE before standing pat with THIRTEEN POINTS to their name! They were certainly Gittin IT, and Tri-Pardo would only continue things!

In the third round of Tri-Pardo, it was a strong round for all involved, as Tiny Trump's... and The Good Folk both hit for the triple, grabbing FORTY-FIVE POINTS in the Pardo, as did Girls Gon Git It, while Wookiee of the Year fell behind the back with a still solid fifteen point haul. Still, heading into the Finale, Girls Gon Git It had enough points to notch a new All-Time High Score at Hitch, becoming only the third team to cross 200 points on the east end (and eighth overall)! All they needed was a healthy wager, and the right answer!

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: ALL-TIME HIGH SCORE!

They had both. Leaving only seven points on the board, GIRLS GON GIT IT #NASTYWOMEN not only won their FIRST GOLDEN VHS (or second, third, etc, depending on the team member) but also finished the night with TWO-HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN AND A HALF POINTS! Not only ending the night with the ALL-TIME HIGH SCORE AT HITCH, but also giving them the second highest score in the history of Trivia Club! Though Tiny Trump's Titillating Tanned Toupee of Terror (We're the best. Everyone says so.) and The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes both crossed the Sesquicentennial Mark, it just wasn't enough to catch the competition on the night!
