BUCKHANNON — On Saturday, September 24, a local Buckhannon Trivia Team participated in the Summer Slam Trivia Tournament, held at Brickside Bar & Grille in Bridgeport. Teams from several counties participated in this tournament, but Team Sweet a Licious came out on top with the first place win. The trophy is proudly on display at Sweet a Licious, located on Madison Street in Buckhannon.

Trivia is brought to Buckhannon by Heavy B Productions and is currently held on Mondays at Buffalo Wild Wings. Trivia team members participating in this tournament were Jamie Cutright, Elissa Linger, Chuck Bucklew, Pam Bucklew, Greg Raber (Heavy B Productions), Bill Jack, Michelle Jack (Sweet A Licious Owner) and Brad Edge (Heavy B Productions).

Trivia is hosted on weeknights at the following locations:

Monday: Buffalo Wild Wings in Buckhannon at 7 p.m.

Tuesday: Brickside Bar and Grille in Bridgeport at 7:30 p.m. and Ramblin Root in Fairmont at 7 p.m.

Wednesday: Buffalo Wild Wings in Bridgeport at 7:30 p.m. and Magic’s Bar and Grille in Whitehall at 7 p.m.

Thursday: Meagher’s Irish Pub in Bridgeport at 7 p.m. and Brickside on the Green in Fairmont at 7:30 p.m.

It’s free to play and the top three teams are awarded cash and gift certificates. In order to qualify for the tournament, a team must play at least 16 games. Team members range in age from high school and up and each team has their own unique name. The members of the Sweet a Licious team, formerly known as The Stray Cats, have been participating since the games started at Buffalo Wild Wings nine years ago.

Covid wreaked havoc on everything, including trivia, so this was the first tournament since August 2021. At that time, the winning team, The Tequila Mockingbird, was also from Buckhannon. Therefore, the Gold Winner’s Cup was already held by a local team.

At the end of the day’s tournament, Sweet-a-licious walked away with the Winner’s Cup and $400 in cash.
