To our friends and Trivia Night fans:

Out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to postpone Maryland Matters Trivia Night 2020, which had been scheduled for Thursday, March 12, in Annapolis.

With all the warnings about the health risks associated with large public gatherings ― and this was going to be our largest Trivia Night yet ― we’ve decided it would be prudent to put things off until the public health crisis has passed.

Believe me, we are very disappointed to be making this decision.

Trivia Night has become one of the highlights of the General Assembly session for us here at Maryland Matters — and we were just putting the finishing touches on questions for the contest earlier today. We’ve prepared about 100 questions so far ― they’re really good!

Our plan is to find a suitable time and venue to reschedule this event just as soon as we can.

We thank everyone who bought a ticket already or who was planning to buy one at the door.

If you’d like a refund, we can provide one. Please contact my colleague Meg Thale, at [email protected], and she can arrange for it. Otherwise, we will hold on to your reservation and use the ticket for a rescheduled Trivia Night. And if that date does not work in your schedule, you can always get a refund later. Up to you.

Disappointed as we are, our main concern is for the health and safety of our fellow Marylanders. Please be careful out there.

Thanks for understanding — and please pass the word along to your friends who might have been planning to attend. Stay tuned for the word when we reschedule the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
