For the third year running, the Rossland Radio Co-op will host their hugely popular game show, “The Price is Jeopardy Or No Deal of Fortune,” on Saturday, March 12, at 7 p.m. at the Miners’ Hall.

“The show is a mix of rounds of trivia, music, and image questions, as well as team and individual games,” said organizer Phil Loosely.

The bulk of the game show will pit 10 teams of 10 players each against each other. People can form teams beforehand, or just turn up and get placed on a team that night.

“A team with a mix of good trivia knowledge and a lack of inhibitions seems to be the best mix,” Loosely recommended.

To that end, “the evening is lubricated by a licensed bar, which can sometimes help with some of the games!”

Prizes have been donated to the event by local businesses, individuals, and sports teams. “Each year we’ve had amazing amounts of prizes to give away,” Loosely said.

In previous years, proceeds have been split between the radio co-op and other local causes, namely the Johan Kruus Foundation and the Rossland Skatepark Association. This year’s proceeds will be split with the food bank.

In addition to the ticket price, Loosely asked that people consider bringing a non-perishable food item to donate to the food bank.

Only 100 tickets, $13 each, are available from Café Books. For Radio Co-op members, the price includes a drink.
