**Teams/players need to support the venues that are hosting trivia events. Too many trivia players are attending trivia nights and are not buying anything unless they win a prize. The venues goal in having trivia is to sell food and beverage to patrons. These locations do not have to host trivia and may stop if teams aren’t buying anything. Some of these locations are going to make changes to their policies on how prizes are issued because of this. Support the venues!
