second place and gave the Minutiae a good battle, correctly answering questions like what bone is the only one not connected to any other (hyoid) and the name of the current that warms northern Europe (Gulfstream). Team A members were Patrick Link, Nick Pieper, Ali Daughtry and Daniel Degenhardt.
Also in the final round was team "We're Missing 'Glee' for This, Nick Sustana!!!", with members Erin Latta, Kim Kelly and Eric and Phyllis Fagrelius.
Ridgway Superfans, sporting neon green hair, pompoms and Ridgway High School tee-shirts, won the costume contest. The loudest applause of the night was for Ouray fourth-grader Rae Sustana, who correctly named the nursery rhyme character who suffered from arachnophobia (Little Miss Muffet).
After five preliminary rounds, the three teams with the highest score moved on to the final round. In the preliminary rounds, teams could use mulligans to purchase various benefits, such as asking an audience member for the answer ($50).
Starting with $650 in contributions, about six times more than any other team, Minutiae spent mulligans freely, asking former team member Jen Coates, in the audience with her laptop, for answers. After the judges declared that two of her answers were wrong, Minutiae went silent, but they had enough points to make the final round by then anyway.
