  1. Dear PEERCI,

    Jodi Bogerding suggested I contact you about this question. Last year, I was on the winning trivia team. A teammate, today, suggested that one of the prizes for winning last year was free admission to this year’s conference (or maybe trivia event?). Is any of that true?

    • Hi Jeffrey,
      I’ve scoured my files, and have found no evidence that there was any prize other than the satisfaction of being the best of the best, and a super awesome little trophy. However, it’s a good thought and I’ll bring it up as we plan for this year’s Trivia Night – hope to see you there!
      Take care,
      Cindy Thompson
      PEER CI Chair
