September Trivia Night

2020-09-15

Need some trivia? Bar trivia nights no longer running? We have you covered. Build your brain and your team spirit! This will be our only September Trivia so get your team registered and don't miss out!

About the Event

It wouldn't be a CCC Games without Trivia! We, and our longtime friend and trivia host Doug (from The Know Show Trivia Company), are ready for the final edition of trivia in the CCC 2020 Games. Gather your physically-distant teams of up to 5 and get ready for us to "Quiz U Thru The Phone" one last time!

Here's what you can expect on the day:

1) The Zoom meeting room (details emailed to your Team Lead the day before the event) will be open at 6:30pm MST and trivia will begin promptly at 7:00pm

2) There are 5 rounds in total and each round consists of 10 questions (plus a bonus question for good measure). Point values for each question increase as they get more difficult.

3) Team Leads will be responsible for filling out Google Forms (emailed out the day before the event) for each round and submitting them for marking.

Please note: There are (2) registration forms for this event. A Team Form to be filled out by the Team Lead, and an Individual Participant form to be filled out by all players.

Event Day Communication

You may be wondering how to discuss answers throughout the event. Luckily CCC has had plenty of experience staying connected over the last 5 months (?!) of working from home. Here are some of the ways we've been able to keep in touch:

- Discord - If you've participated in any of our events so far, you'll know that we rely heavily on Discord to communicate before, during, and after events. To learn more about Discord, check out this document we put together: Discord 101

- House Party

- Google Hangouts

- Slack, Cellphones, other chat services

- Having a responsible, socially-distanced gathering with wifi 

- Carrier pigeons, fax machines, etc. (not recommended)

If your team wants to do video calls (highly recommended!) here are some helpful tips:

- Multiple displays will make this easier but it's not absolutely necessary.

- Everyone should be in the Zoom meeting for the visual clues, but only one of you needs to have the audio on! If everyone else mutes the Zoom meeting (you'll see an option to do that without muting your whole computer), you won't have to deal with the echo!

- Another solution to this audio problem would be for everyone to use headphones.

Why Extraordinary Circumstances?

We've been hearing it for awhile now and, even though it's been roughly 1000 years in self-isolation, it remains true: We are living in unprecedented times. Due to the ever-evolving situation with COVID-19, and with our participants' safety at the forefront, the September Games are no longer viable. Unlike Ross Geller though, we've managed to "PIVOT!".

What's better than 16 days of events? 3 months of events! Calgary Corporate Challenge remains committed to providing our participating companies opportunities to promote teamwork, community building, employee engagement, and networking. We are proud to present a brand new slate of events in these Extraordinary Circumstances.

What will the 2020 CCC Games: Extraordinary Circumstances look like?

Much like the September Games, Extraordinary Circumstances will be a mixed bag of 'Sports' Events, Monthly Challenges, and Special/Social Events, all designed to bring people together! From July to September, CCC will be hosting numerous tournaments and facilitating challenges to get people active and connecting. What are you waiting for?

So who can participate in Extraordinary Circumstances?

In an effort to get even more of your company involved, CCC has eased restrictions on employee participation. Does your office have 40 people who want to participate in trivia? Great, 10 teams it is! Is the entire office going to compete in the Suncor Step Challenge? The more the merrier! Plus, for the first time, every employee from any Canadian office of a registered company is invited to join in. Surprise! Virtual & digital events have far fewer participation limits.

How will I connect with my coworkers and other participants?

Discord will be our main form of communication during events! (See the next FAQ for more)

Zoom will also make an appearance at some of our events. While we're familiar with the perils of "Zoom fatigue", we promise these events won't feel like just another Zoom meeting!

We also strongly encourage our Company Captains and Team Captains to foster these relationships and connections by organizing their own remote team huddles. We want the spirit of the September Games to live on through these events, so get those happy hour drinks flowing and look at how your team measures up on our Event Leaderboards!

What is Discord?

Discord is easy, intuitive, and it's free! We will use Discord Servers to get many of our tournaments organized, but the channels will also remain open for our participants to stay connected throughout the events. Who couldn't use a little more human interaction these days?

What's the difference between an Event and a Challenge?

Events will take place on a specific date & time. Challenges follow a "do-it-yourself" model and can be done at your convenience within a certain time frame!

Are there trophies and medals to be won this year?

Yes, Spirit Trophies are on the line! Divisional Trophies and Medals will not be awarded this year, but that doesn't mean there won't still be winners. Bragging rights are still up for grabs.

More information about the following will be provided as soon as possible:

Special Events including the Design Challenge, CEO Challenge, Halftime Party, and Closing Ceremony
