It’s all fun and game show night for the museum

The Rossland Museum is holding a game show fundraiser at the Miners’ Hall on Saturday, Jan. 23.

The Rossland Museum is holding a game show fundraiser at the Miners’ Hall on Saturday, Jan. 23.

The Price is Jeopardy or No Deal of Fortune will be hosted by Phillus Dillus, a.k.a Phil Loosely, and the proceeds will go towards Phase 1 of the museum’s renovation project.

Libby Martin, president of the museum board of directors, says the museum is very close to its goal.

“We are only $4,000 short of our goal of $400,000,” she says. “So we’ve got this event and the quilt raffle, which we’re still selling tickets [for].”

The show is interactive and audience members play a number of different games during the evening.

“It’s a mix of trivia and music and images and stuff like that, but we’ll also play some physical games,” says Loosely. “It’s mostly played as a team, so there will be ten teams of ten on the night, and a lot of the games will be played as a team, but there will be some games that will be played individually with winners winning points for their team.”

Loosely has been doing the show since 2009 and has since done a few fundraisers for the late Rossland Radio Co-op, but hasn’t done a public show in Rossland since 2011.

“This is kind of the homecoming show,” he says. “It’s kind of exciting for us as well. It’s like bringing it back to where it all started.”

Loosely, his game show partner Rupert Keiller and Nadine Tremblay have a company called Altitude Entertainment, and the game show has become part of what the company does.

“So we perform it for lots of Christmas parties, and conferences, and team building events, and fundraisers, and dry grad events, and stuff like that” he says.

Loosely warns those attending to leave their innabitions at home.

“There will be some innabition busting games,” he says.

There will be prizes to be won on Saturday, including a 2016/2017 season pass to Red Mountain and a 2016/2017 pass to Black Jack.

To win either pass, participants will have to buy tickets to a separate game played throughout the evening. Money from the game will also go toward the museum.

Tickets are $20 at Powderhound and are going fast they may even already be gone so those who are interested should inquire right away. Doors will open at 7 p.m. on Saturday and the event will begin at 7:30 p.m.
