Friends of Historic Saugerties presents: "The Catskills/Saugerties Trivia Quiz Show"

 

Join Quizmaster Extraordinaire Paul Misko, as he leads a lively and informative “show” that will test your knowledge of local history. Two teams, plus volunteers from the audience, will participate in a spirited and friendly competition with a host of multiple-choice questions about the Catskills and Saugerties areas.

 

Not only will there be prizes for those who are sharp or lucky enough to pick the right answer, but we will learn lots of Catskills/Saugerties history facts; some are happy, some are sad, and some are disturbing, but all are fascinating.

 

Paul Misko has been hiking in the Catskills since childhood. Over the years he has learned much about the Catskill forest, and the human history within it. Through research and fieldwork, he has solved some vexing Catskill mysteries.  He has written articles for both “Kaatskill Life,” and the “Catskill Mountain Region Guide” and regularly gives talks on Catskill history, American history, and John Burroughs. He shares his research both in person, and on WIOX radio's "From the Forest", and conducts Catskills trivia quiz shows as well.

All Friends of Historic Saugerties talks are free and open to anyone who is interested in history.  Seating is limited.
