Loyola Academy’s Rambler Parent Organization (RPO) hosted a virtual trivia night in lieu of the traditional Ramble Rouser, a parent mixer held in the East Gym, on Friday, January 22. The event serves as a kickoff to the Ramble season, and this year’s virtual format provided for a fun new twist on this annual parent gathering.
Sixty two Rambler parents and couples tuned in at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom and competed on teams in trivia categories such as Loyola history, teen slang, Chicago sports, current events and more. Prizes from Loyola’s bookstore included LA fan gear and apparel awarded to the winning teams from each round.
Congratulations to the following teams: Round 1 Winners
: Joanne LdM ’84 and Bill Brandstrader ’88, Terri and Bob Bielinski ’84, John and Karen Redmond, Martina Sangin, and Sarah McShane Round 2 Winners
: Alicia Bailey, Joanne LdM ‘84 and Bill Brandstrader ’88, Bridget and Mike Snyders, Maureen and Rob Loftus, Michelle and Bill McGowan, and Nate Mendes and Matt Nash
