**TRIVIA SMACKDOWN II: REVENGE OF THE NERDS!!**

Ten teams will test their knowledge of all things trivial in this mental slugfest, but only one team can emerge with the satisfaction that they, having left the competition dazed and confused, have the BIGGEST BRAINS OF ALL!

The mental fists will fly again at the Morseland, located at 1218 W. Morse, at 3 pm.

For those of you who weren't able to join us the first time around, the first ELS Trivia Smackdown was an awesome, hilarous, bitterly-fought contest of worthy rivals, as well as a great fundraiser. We made piles of money for our excellent and humble cause: fellowships for students, working to preserve and restore our environment, in low-paying or unpaid summer internships and jobs.

See you at the Smackdown!

For questions, contact Elea Crowther Nielsen, ELS Fundraising Chair, eleajean@hotmail.com
