Special Olympics "Trivia Night" is big success

The Rolla Police Department and Special Olympics – Missouri would like to thanks everyone who helped make the 9th Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run "Trivia Night" a success.

There were 8 teams competing for the Championship Trophy held by team "Ground Chuck" who claimed the 2007 and 2008 championships consecutively. And for 2009, the Championship trophy once again goes to the defending champions "Ground Chuck’ for the 3rd straight year. Team "Ground Chuck" is comprised of attorneys, business men and woman, and Missouri S&T faculty. "Ground Chuck" will once again be awarded the traveling trophy and will secure free berth to the 2010 "trivia night"!

The teams competing in 2009 were Ground Chuck, Phelps County Bank, Williams, Robinson, Rigler and Buschjost law firm, Department of Natural Resources, Rolla Radiology, Phelps County Sheriff’s Department, John’s Firestone (Rolla PD), and Linda Richards and the (Definite Maybe’s). Even though only one team is declared "Champion", we believe all our teams are champions at heart!
