The question is “Who am I?” You must give my first and last name.

10) Who am I? I passed away in 2015. I was lucky to be alive after I almost died trying to save a guitar from a burning building that started on fire after a fight over a lady. Since, I named my guitars the same name as the lady the men were fighting over when they started the fire. My big break came when a radio station offered airtime for $15 to $20 to play live music. I did and the rest is history. What were the radio station's call letters?

Welcome!

 

Triviathon will be an online event again this year starting at 6:00 PM Thursday, December 31 on WRCO FM, 100.9. 

Important: All teams will have to register this year (even if you were registered in past years. It will help us maintain current information and have a better idea of teams planning on playing. 

 

Important Registration Information:

Please read all instructions first

Click the LOGIN Link in the upper right of this page.

The click the Sign up Link; you will be taken to the registration page.

Name will be the Triviathon team captain's name.

Enter an email you can check asap. A confirmation email will be sent to that address with a link you must click to finish registration.

The username is your team name. PLEASE enter your username (team name) with spaces; just make sure there is not an extra space at the end or beginning of your username; spaces in between words are fine. It will make our work much easier. Enter the rest of the information as requested. Be sure to check your email and complete the registration.

 

Scoring will be the same this year as last:

Every correct answer will be worth 10 points for every team.

The first five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 40 points for a total of 50.

The next five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 30 points for a total of 40.

The next five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 20 points for a total of 30.

The next five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 10 points for a total of 20.

 

Each answer will automatically be assigned a time/date stamp as it is submitted online. The time/date stamp will be used to determine the order in which teams answer. Our goal will be to provide regular scoring updates. However, if issues or circumstances prevent us from providing running scoring updates, we reserve the right to announce the final scores at a later date. There will be a time limit for each question. We will announce a time when each question will end. Submissions after the stated time will not count. There will be a grace period of one minute. We will not overlap questions.

 

Spelling will be critical again this year. Answers that are misspelled may not be counted. Be sure that you have spelled your answer correctly before you hit submit. Teams may only answer each question once. Any team answering a question more than once will be disqualified for that question. Repeated duplicate answers may result in removal from Triviathon. You will need your team name and password for every question throughout the night. Important: It will be critical to be sure you submit your answer for the correct question. We will work hard to make sure there is no confusion about what question we are on.

 

Regular questions will continue throughout the night and scoring will remain the same all night long.

We will maintain a trouble line for the purpose of technical issues only. The trouble line will address issues that may arise with the use of the online answering system. It will not address questions, answers or challenges to questions. By submitting an answer, you agree to accept both the question and the answer as provided by WRCO. We will make every effort to be accurate, but we cannot possibly research every source. We appreciate your understanding of this policy.

 

The technical trouble line number will be 649-4535. We encourage you to make sure you can log in and submit an answer using the sample answer link on the Triviathon page. If you have questions, please ask. We would like to have all issues ironed out well before the event starts.

 

Look for the Login/Register link in the upper right hand corner. Remember, all teams wanting to play must register. The username is your team name. The deadline to register 9:00 AM Thursday, December 31.

 

Important: The Triviathon section of the website is under the “Resources” menu. It is only visible to registered users who are logged in. 

 

We encourage you to register and then try logging in as soon as possible to make sure you can. To avoid hassles that may develop for teams during Triviathon, we have tried to eliminate issues that could arise. Please make sure that only one computer is logged in to provide answers during Triviathon. We could limit logins, but then if by chance you lose your connection, you can't get it back without our help which is counterproductive for everyone. Also, type your team name and password carefully. To speed up the submission process and to help dial-up Internet users, we will be checking the passwords in the studio as opposed to having it done in the software. Therefore, the system will accept what you type. Keep your password a secret to protect your score.

 

Thanks for your support of Triviathon for the past 27 years! Happy New Year!! If you have questions, please let us know. Happy Holidays!

Question 28: UW-Whitewater achieved a unique tri-fecta during the 2013-14 school year, becoming the first school in any N-C-A-A division to win the national baseball, football, and men's basketball crowns in the same year. But the Warhawks won six NCAA national titles last year. What two women's titles did UW-Whitewater win in 2013-14?

Gymnastics & wheelchair basketball (the men's wheelchair basketball team also won the NCAA national title.) Story from Wheeler News May 28, 2014 It's getting to be an all-too-familiar scene at U-W Whitewater. A national championship team comes home to a campus rally -- and then the athletes are saluted with a fire-truck parade around town. It was the Whitewater baseball team's turn to get the heroes' welcome last night, about five hours after the Warhawks won the N-C-A-A Division-Three baseball finals near Appleton. The 'Hawks shut out Emory of Atlanta 7-to-nothing, and became the first school in any N-C-A-A division to win the national baseball, football, and men's basketball crowns in the same year. It never gets old. Baseball coach John Vodenlich said that as soon as the basketball team won its title, his cell phone blew up with text messages saying it was time for his team to win. Actually, it was Whitewater's sixth national championship this school year. The Warhawk women also won their national gymnastics crown -- and the men's-and-women's wheelchair basketball teams were champions as well.

Question 9: Who am I? Prince William and Kate Middleton and Michelle Obama were among my many many creations that were often described as some of the greatest compliments in fashion. At the time of my death in July of 2014, I was credited with creating several hundred books. From the mid-1970s until my death, I was known as the king of my craft who saved an age old hobby in the doll world. What is my first and last name?

Tom Tierney, who quite by accident found fame and fortune dressing — and undressing — notables from George Washington to Michelle Obama, died on July 12 at his home in Smithville, Texas. Mr. Tierney, who almost single-handedly revived the lost art of paper-doll making, was 85.

Question 4: Hoping it would never be released, this backup singer improvised her part in a very familiar Christmas song. Her soprano voice helped define the song and a number of other classic '50s, '60s and '70s recordings from some of this country's most popular artists. This Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum honoree died earlier this month (Dec) in Nashville at the age of 91. Name this singer.

Millie Kirkham, whose sky-high iconic soprano helped define Elvis Presley's "Blue Christmas" and a number of other classic '50s, '60s and '70s recordings, died in Nashville. In 1980, Kirkham lent her voice to one of the greatest country songs of all time-George Jones “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”

Welcome to Triviathon 2014 

Our first hope is that you enjoy tonight's Triviathon broadcast! We will be posting updates on this page throughout the evening.

Here are some tips that will make your Triviathon effort more successful: First and most important, make very sure you are using the correct answer link at the right for the question being asked on the air.

When answering, make sure to always submit your team name and not your username (unless of course they are the same).

Haste makes waste! Be sure you have entered all the information before submitting.

Spelling your answer correctly is important. There will be one question tonight where we will require you to spell the answer correctly to receive credit. We will warn you.

Submit only one answer. Our policy is to allow no credit to a team that submits more than one answer to any question.

Our help line is for technical issues only. Please do not email as we will not be able to respond in a timely fashion. When you submit an answer, you are agreeing to accept the question and answer as presented as correct. The help line is 608-649-4535.

As detailed in the email we sent to all teams today, we will not be emailing current questions this year. It will take us back to a time when careful listening to the question was imperative for success in playing Triviathon.

Have fun and good luck!

 

Congratulations to Pooh Bears, the Triviathon 2013 Champions! Can they defend their title?

We are looking forward to ending 2014 with another year of Triviathon!

The 27th annual Triviathon will be an online event again this year starting at 6:00 PM Wednesday, December 31 on WRCO FM, 100.9. 

Scoring will be the same this year as last:

Every correct answer will be worth 10 points for every team.

The first five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 40 points for a total of 50.

The next five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 30 points for a total of 40.

The next five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 20 points for a total of 30.

The next five teams to answer correctly will receive an extra 10 points for a total of 20.

Each answer will automatically be assigned a time/date stamp as it is submitted online. The time/date stamp will be used to determine the order in which teams answer. Our goal will be to provide regular scoring updates. However, if issues or circumstances prevent us from providing running scoring updates, we reserve the right to announce the final scores at a later date.

There will be a time limit for each question. We will announce a time when each question will end. Submissions after the stated time will not count. There will be a grace period of one minute.

We will not overlap questions.

Spelling will be critical again this year. Answers that are misspelled may not be counted. Be sure that you have spelled your answer correctly before you hit submit. Teams may only answer each question once. Any team answering a question more than once will be disqualified for that question. Repeated duplicate answers may result in removal from Triviathon. You will need your team name and password for every question throughout the night. Important: It will be critical to be sure you submit your answer for the correct question. We will work hard to make sure there is no confusion about what question we are on.

Regular questions will continue throughout the night and scoring will remain the same all night long.

We will maintain a trouble line for the purpose of technical issues only. The trouble line will address issues that may arise with the use of the online answering system. It will not address questions, answers or challenges to questions. By submitting an answer, you agree to accept both the question and the answer as provided by WRCO. We will make every effort to be accurate, but we cannot possibly research every source. We appreciate your understanding of this policy.

The technical trouble line number will be 649-4535. We encourage you to make sure you can log in and submit an answer using the sample answer link on the Triviathon page. If you have questions, please ask. We would like to have all issues ironed out well before the event starts.

Look for the Login/Register link in the upper right hand corner. If you registered  last year, simply log-in. If you are a new team, please register. The username is your team name. The deadline to register 9:00 AM Wednesday, December 31.

If you have forgotten your username and/or password, you can recover your username and reset your password at the login screen.

Important: The Triviathon section of the website is under the “Resources” menu. It is only visible to registered users who are logged in.

We encourage you to try logging in as soon as possible to make sure you can.

To avoid hassles that may develop for teams during Triviathon, we have tried to eliminate issues that could arise. Please make sure that only one computer is logged in to provide answers during Triviathon. We could limit logins, but then if by chance you lose your connection, you can't get it back without our help which is counterproductive for everyone. Also, type your team name and password carefully. To speed up the submission process and to help dial-up Internet users, we will be checking the passwords in the studio as opposed to having it done in the software. Therefore, the system will accept what you type. Keep your password a secret to protect your score.

Thanks for your support of Triviathon for the past 26 years! Happy New Year!! If you have questions, please let us know.
