Jimmy Tingle to Host “Are You as Smart as a CRLS Student” Quiz Show

This thursday, bring your general knowledge and trivia smarts out as community members pit themselves against CRLS students in a battle of the brains!  Cambridge comedic legend Jimmy Tingle will host the event at the Fitzgerald Auditorium, 7pm-9pm.  Here’s an excerpt from the write-up in the Cambridge Chronicle, titled “Jimmy Tingle to host Cambridge Rindge and Latin School Community Academic Challenge” :

Did you know that Cambridge is considered the second smartest city in America?  Do you want to help prove it and even make it number one?  Come to the first annual CRLS Academic Community Challenge entitled “Are You As Smart as a CRLS Student?”

Join nationally known Cantabrigian comedian Jimmy Tingle, class of ’73 as he hosts this test of general knowledge on Thursday, March 29 from 7 to 9 pm in the school’s Fitzgerald Theatre.  Members of community organizations, schools, businesses and neighborhood groups are invited to enter teams of four colleagues to challenge teams of CRLS students in this exceptional battle of the brains.  Individuals are also welcome to register by themselves that night and will join others in creating a team.

Come and see if you remember all the elements on the periodic table or the formula for determining the length of an arc on a circle?  Who was that president who served after Grover Cleveland?  These types of questions plus some general trivia and cultural questions will be asked in a round-robin style with prizes and trophies awarded to the top adult and student teams. The evening is designed to be both educational and fun. Please note, however, no life-lines, phone a friend or smart phones are allowed.
