FORT COLLINS, Colo. – On October 19, 2013 Fort Collins Museum of Discovery will present the Annual Brainiac Bowl – a chance to enjoy food, drink, trivia, costumes and more to benefit the Museum of Discovery!

Dust off your thinking cap and join us at the Annual Brainiac Bowl, on Oct. 19th at the Fort Collins Marriott for a one-of-a-kind trivia contest that covers science, local history and much more.

The Brainiac Bowl has developed a huge following in Northern Colorado. Once again, the trivia-loving public is invited to join in the fun and enter their own teams for the chance to win the coveted Brainiac Trophy and the title of Brainiac Bowl Champions! Assemble your smartest friends and join us to demonstrate your command of science, local history, pop culture, and all things trivial. Be warned that the competition is fierce and the title of Brainiac Bowl Champions is a hard-won prize.

Don’t forget to show your team spirit and creativity with your costumes. One of the more lively events of the evening is the team costume contest. Past team costumes have included Einsteins, the Noble Gasses, and survivors of the Titanic. We’ve even had Hannibal Lector show up – he was wheeled in on a dolly, wearing a straightjacket!

In addition to the trivia and costume contests, there are also fun prize packages, a hilarious game of Heads or Tails and a fabulous buffet to fortify contestants. Mike Nelson, Denver Channel 7’s magnetic Chief Meteorologist, will emcee the event again and add plenty of laughs.

Registration for individuals is $75 per person and includes dinner, libations, an opportunity to meet Channel 7’s Mike Nelson, and a place at the Brainiac Bowl trivia extravaganza! Corporate tables are also available, as are event sponsorships.

Brainiac Bowl will be held on October 19, 6-9:30 PM at Fort Collins Marriott on Horsetooth Road.
