Yes, it’s that time of year! It’s time to register for the not-to-be-missed Lamorinda Democratic Club Hot August Night Political Trivia Championship on Thursday, August 11, at 6 p.m.

This is one of the LDC’s most popular annual events. “Trivia Night” offers the opportunity for our members and friends, LDC Precinct Organizers and activists, candidates, and elected officials to come together in an informal way over complimentary frozen margaritas and finger foods, some political trivia, friendly competition and banter, and just for fun. I hope you can join us! Just like last year, the 2022 ”Trivia Night” will take place at the Lafayette Library, outside, on the patio. Seating is limited, so please register soon using this link: https://forms.gle/Cwq55VapXFsQJJNM7.

LDC Members, LDC Precinct Organizers, and elected officials receive complimentary admission with advance registration by Friday, August 5. If you join the Lamorinda Democratic Club now through August 1, your membership will carry through to December 2023. Click here to join the club or renew your membership: https://ldclub.org/join-donate-square/. For other non-members attending, the registration fee is $15 per person.

The theme of the 2022 event is “TV Game Shows of the 70s.” So get ready to Tell the Truth, avoid a Family Feud, and find out whether the Price is Right! The table exhibiting the most team spirit may receive special recognition or prizes.😉 So be inspired! Round up your friends, fellow Precinct Organizers, neighbors, Club members, or favorite city council members, and enter as a team. Or come on your own! Everyone who attends will participate as part of a team. Will team “Good Trouble” return for a shot at victory again? Or will the once-upon-a-time “Young Dems” try to recapture their youth with a win? And what about Democrats of Rossmoor? Will they be back with their besties on the Walnut Creek City Council?

Congratulations to the 2021 Hot August Night Trivia Champions

Well done to the “Good Trouble” team who won this year’s LDC Hot August Night Political Trivia Championship—proving our summer was not all work and no play.

The champions, pictured above, included (from left to right): Valerie Sloven, Kate Jastram, Shirley Shelangoski, Katie Creighton, and (not pictured) Tre Frane.

Nearly 70 fully-vaccinated and symptom-free LDC members and guests participated responsibly at this year’s outdoor event at the Lafayette Library. The margaritas flowed as freely as the banter between members, old friends, newcomers, Precinct Organizers, CoCo County Democratic officials, city council members, and other elected officials. We were also thrilled that our Assembly Member, Rebecca Bauer Kahan was able to join us for this event. (There’s no need to announce the ranking of Team “Mulligan.” 😉)

Thank you to all who participated in Trivia Night 2021!

Extra special thanks to the Trivia Planning Team: France Silcox, Tandra Ericson, Peter Ericson, Russell Creighton, and John Donnelly—and also to the entire LDC Board who always step up to the plate with their time, energy, and enthusiasm to make every LDC event a success. In addition to those Board Members mentioned above: Mike, Tony, Katie, Tom, Valerie, Mary Ann, David, Craig, Shirley, Renee, Brad, and Jim.
