Next CCFS trivia night approaches

The Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) hosts a high-tech session of its now-infamous CCFS Trivia Event Nov. 18.

Shake off your mental cobwebs and get ready to show off your brainy best Nov. 18 when the Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) hosts a high-tech session of its now-infamous CCFS Trivia Event.
This special encore event is a great way to kick your mind into high gear and enjoy a hilarious, and informative, night out with friends!

The evening includes a no-host bar, tasty treats, a tonne of awesome door prizes and the winning team walks away with the esteemed title of Trivia Champion and some very cool prizes contributed from local businesses, artists, musicians and other supporters in the community!

For the past several years, one particular team has been winning, so this year we welcome teams who want to topple the incumbents.
Teams of eight can register in advance by sending their team members’ names into info@cumberlandforest.com. If you don’t have a team, come anyway and the CCFS will find you one. 
The cost if $10 per person. Quizmaster Roger Albert is cooking up some questions that will be certain to challenge and amuse!  Carolyn Albert is putting together PowerPoint presentations to augment the competition.

All proceeds from the CCFS Trivia Events go towards to purchase of forest lands surrounding the Village of Cumberland. These trails are filled with biking and hiking trails and rich flora and fauna.

The CCFS goal is to purchase as much as 650 acres of forest on Cumberland’s southwest boundary from private owners to protect it from being logged.

In 2005 the first and second parcels of forest, totalling over 170 acres, were purchased for approximately $1 million. They were given to the Village of Cumberland with conservation covenants attached to them, and they now form a wilderness park called the Cumberland Community Forest.

Doors at the Cumberland Cultural Centre open at 6:30 on the 18th and the trivia games begin at 7 p.m. sharp.
