Brady Smith (AKA Metalhead) Fund Trivia Event
« on: March 03, 2022, 01:24:12 PM »
Just wanted to publicize this event that's happening for our guy Brady at the end of April.  The link with all the details is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/3154896461448115/?ref=newsfeed

On the one hand, it's a shame that a lot of our big PAK'ing opportunities come at events honoring our deceased friends, on the other, getting together and goofing off and having fun at an event to honor Brady seems pretty appropriate and natural.  Anyway, a description (provided by our very own MiegeCat) pulled from the event page is below:

Quote
Brady's friends and I got together and wanted to throw a fundraiser for the great things his family is doing for the community in his name. No better way to do that than host a trivia event - Auntie Mae's style - in his honor. Not interested in trivia, but still want to come and have a good time? No worries, this event is open to all who want to contribute. This is a public event, so spread the invite to anyone I may have missed. More details below.
But first, a little bit about Brady's fund. First part of the fund is the annual "Brady Smith Memorial Scholarship" that goes to a high school senior who has competed in wrestling. Second is a grant that can be distributed to nonprofits related to wrestling. This could be equipment for schools, donations to clubs, or training fees for officiating. If you cannot make the event, but would like to contribute to the cause, donations to the fund are accepted here - https://topekacommunityfoundation.org/donate

Event will take place Saturday, April 30th at The Rickhouse, which is an event space inside Burg & Barrel. Schedule below:

12:30 - Event space open
1:00 - Buffet opens: Build-your-own-burger bar + sides (tots, tenders, salad, etc)
2:00 - Trivia Start
5:00ish - Trivia Finish

The space is ours to use the remainder of the evening. People are welcome to hang out in the space as long as they like after trivia ends. We plan to start packing up around 7:00.

Trivia rules

-No more than 6 members per team
-12 teams maximum. First come, First serve
-$40 donation per team member (this covers the food buffet as well; pay your own drink tab)
-Sign up due by April 16th. You can add more players to your team after the deadline, as long as it does not exceed 6.
-Reserve your spot by sending a Venmo to @KentSchmidtberger or a PayPal to [email protected] with your team name and # of members. One payment preferred per team.
-Want to play, but can't make a team? Send me a direct message and I will try to find you a spot.

Not interested in trivia?

-$30 per person donation includes the buffet (pay your own drink tab).
-Show up anytime from 12:30-4:00.
-Send a Venmo to @KentSchmidtberger or a PayPal to [email protected] Will also accept cash the day of, but please RSVP ahead of time for an accurate food head count.

Donations beyond the above amounts are encouraged if desired. The space, food buffet, taxes, and service tip will cost roughly $20/person. All money raised on top of that will go straight to the fund.
Note that space is limited in the event space but the entire restaurant will be open for overflow. Send in your payment or RSVP by April 16th so an accurate food head count can be given. This can be done by responding to the Facebook event or sending an email to [email protected]

If you have questions, feel free to post them here or send me a direct message. Hope this can be a great event for all.

As the inaugural winner of FattyFest, I look forward to taking on all challengers. Also, PurpleBear4 will be wrestling any potential suitors at halftime or 12 beers deep, whichever comes first.

This will be the first thing like this where I'm not working* so I plan to play.  I might be on a mod team if it exists, some team of Bear's as it sounds like he'll be picking me up late Friday and immediately driving me to booze, or a wichita pak'rs team if one can be revived.

*working includes getting superpak'd and talking immense crap to other BBBS bowling competition while monitoring every dollar to ensure gE would beat wichita's largest corporations

Wait, this thing is in Topeka?  I’m an idiot, there’s a Burg and Barrel in KC which I thought it was at.

Sounds like a great event for a really great guy. I committed to a pak on the same weekend out in Colorado a few months back so can’t make it. Can’t wait to hear the stories and see the pictures though.
