(Moncton, February 27, 2023)

Plans are underway for the most anticipated trivia event of the year – the 20th edition of YMCA Battle of the Brains!  Presented by Q103 and New Country 96.9, this main event has been stumping academics, intellects and know-it-alls since 2002.

Back to defend their championship title are 3x Champions Air Trivia Controllers, team from Nav Canada who took top spot in 2022.  Do you have what it takes to claim the top spot? If so, join us Saturday, March 18, 2023 at 7pm at YMCA Moncton North (70 Twin Oaks Drive).

With just four spots remaining, don’t delay! Register your team by March 17, 2023 and take part in a fun evening of trivia and laughs with all proceeds supporting the YMCA Reconnect program.  YMCA ReConnect provides outreach to individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, connecting them with appropriate community resources and providing a supportive ‘hand up’ to potentially improve their lives.  Participating in Battle of the Brains is one way the community can come together to make a difference for those experiencing homelessness.

It is a night of friendly competition, where each team (max 6 players) collectively answer ten rounds of trivia questions on a range of topics. A panel of judges score each round and the team with the most points at the end of the night is crowned Battle of the Brains champions and enjoy bragging rights, along with the sought-after championship belt! Teams are encouraged to dress up for the event and vie for the ‘Rock Star Award’ sponsored by Pepsi, awarded to the team with best costumes and team spirit.

Scotty Horsman of New Country 96.9 FM will again host this year’s Battle of the Brains. Special thanks to our sponsors D.R. Docusafe, Cheers Beverage Room and Catering, Pepsi, and Inspiration Design.

Since inception, the event has raised over $200,000.  To learn more about how you can register a team, sponsor, or donate, visit the YMCA of Greater Moncton website or contact Jaime MacLellan.
