A total of 14 teams gathered in the Best Western Beachfront Inn conference center Saturday night in a competition to see which team could answer the most questions correctly.

Winning the event was Surf and Turf. Coming in second place was a team from Barron’s Home Furnishings followed by Pelican Bay Arts Association coming in third. Last year’s champion, Curry Coastal Pilot, didn’t fare as well and came in fourth.
