Thanks to Buzztime Entertainment, teams of varying sizes, many sponsored by service organizations and local businesses, will get to use their knowledge of trivia to compete to win the coveted Seagull trophy. David Nydegger of the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce will serve as the Master of Ceremonies. The event will also feature a contest to honor the team with the most team spirit, opportunity drawings, and a few valuable auction items.
