It doesn’t seem possible, but this edition marks the seventh of your new weekly Granite City edition.
I hope you enjoy what you’ve seen so far and we hope to keep making improvements to create an even better publication. With that in mind, I’d like to introduce our sports trivia feature.
For awhile now we’ve had our sports trivia going successfully in our Greater Alton edition, so I thought it would be an awesome addition for Granite City. Each week we will ask hyper-local sports trivia questions and look for you to answer those questions. It’s a chance for us to be interactive with our readers, too, which we like to do.
To answer the question, you will complete an entry at advantagenews.com. Click on the Contests tab, then “Granite City Sports Trivia answer.” The deadline for answers is Sunday each week. I will gather all of the correct answers and pick a weekly winner.
As a winner, you will get your name in the paper and receive a prize donated by a local sponsor.
We will have four rotating local sponsors supplying prizes. Shirts Galore, McKay NAPA Auto Parts, LJW Tax Service and Speedy’s Old Fashion Car Wash and Detail Shop are the sponsors for Granite City.
The questions will include trivia from Granite City, Madison and Venice high schools, Tri-City Speedway, Gateway Motorsports Park and other local sports subjects. The questions will vary on subject matter and will span from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s up to current sports.
Put your thinking caps on and get ready for local sports trivia. This will be fun.
If you have ideas, potential trivia questions or suggestions you think will improve our sports pages, email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you and I’m happy you are enjoying what we are doing with AdVantage News sports.
Our first trivia question will appear in the July 23 edition of AdVantage News.
