Winnipeg hotel celebrates centennial with ‘once-in-a-century trivia adventure’

There’s still time to start brushing up on local history and register for the Winnipeg 1913 Trivia Hunt in celebration of the Fort Garry Hotel’s centennial year.

The historic trivia game, which starts Monday, will see those registered challenged with a series of online quizzes emailed once a month for the next 10-months.

“The game is an excellent way to learn something you may not know about Winnipeg’s history, and interesting facts about the Fort Garry,” said Ida Albo, a managing partner at The Fort Garry Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre in a release. “We wanted a celebration that is accessible to the public, and the game allows us to include everyone that wants to celebrate with us.”

Local historian and author Jim Blanchard has been tasked with writing each month’s 10 questions and he promises to make them fun and “not too hard” to answer, according to the release.

Monthly top finishers will be entered to win prizes throughout the run of the trivia hunt, and a grand prize of one Ten Spa service each week for a year—valued at $6,500—will be awarded in December.
