The Autism Society of the CNMI invites you to Quiz Nite IV at the Fiesta Resort and Spa’s Hibiscus Hall this Saturday, May 2, 2015, from 6pm to 10pm. Dinner is at 6pm and game begins at 7pm. You can come alone and make a team onsite, or come with a team of your smartest friends. We used to have limits to our team sizes, but those rules have gone out the window this year! Quiz Nite begins with dinner and then a chance to test your team’s knowledge content. Tickets are $25 a person and no limit to the size of your team. You can buy tickets at the door, but seating is limited to 150, so you can also call me at 783-6378, or Ellena Sutton at 664-7005, or Lillian Ada at 664-7001. Come out, have fun, and support your ASCNMI.
Quiz Nite has been ongoing since 2010. Each time we have had over 100 folks participate and try to walk away with the Golden Trophy. Many teams have tried from our community, including, but not limited to: Mike White and Family, Dr. Ada’s Team, Principal Jonas Barcinas and his students, various teacher and or student teams from elementary, junior high, high schools, and the college. We have also seen a team of lawyers and doctors last year that took second place. Our winners since Quiz Nite I have been Mr. Mike White and family both years A.K.A. Team Apaka, and last year’s champions, Kagman high team of teachers A.K.A. “One Helluvah Knight” took it all!
Quiz Nite IV is an ASCNMI game night where we test through trivia the knowledge of our contestants based on the number of correct answers the team can provide. We have three judges on hand to tally and report the scores. The goal of Quiz Nite is to bring awareness of autism and other disabilities to our community. There will be a total of 50 questions, with half pertaining to autism or other disabilities, the other half random trivia questions. Each round has 10 questions. We will have five rounds, after which the answers are collected, tallied and shared with the audience before the next round. As a preview, we will share two of the five round topics with you. Round 2 will be on “Comic Books” and Round 4 will be on “Laws.” Mr. Greg Borja will be the co-host with me for Quiz Nite IV, so you know we will keep it interesting.
Now is the time for all good people on Saipan to come together for Autism. The theme for World Autism Day is “Light It Up Blue!” You put a blue light up somewhere and when people ask you why, you talk about autism. As you may or may not know, autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in America. As of April 2014, the new statistics from the CDC say that 1 in 68 children aged 8 years old in America has a form of ASD.
