Here are some of the categories we’ll be asking you about:

— THE WRITE STUFF
— LADIES FIRST
— CHARMED, I’M SURE!
— LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!
— EAT, DRINK & BE MERRY
And who knows? There could be a few others.
To get you in practice, we’ve been asking a trivia question each day. Here’s the question we posted Thursday:
Presidential candidate George Wallace was paralyzed from the waist down in 1972 after being shot five times in an assassination attempt during a campaign rally in this Maryland city.
The answer: Laurel
Here’s the next question:
This Montgomery County town become the “U.S. Capital for a Day” after the British burned Washington, D.C., during the War of 1812, forcing President James Madison and some of his Cabinet members to flee the city.
Check this space Monday for the answer — and the next question! And please make plans to join us on the 27th!
