The 12th Annual Panorama Challenge: Results
Congratulations to all the competitors at the 12th Annual Panorama Challenge! I hope everyone had fun and will be back for next year’s Challenge.
A few shout outs: despite fears of a hard game, a few teams scored perfect rounds in the first half (all Challengers): Joe Lhota’s Toyota, Carousel of Progress and Plane Bagel. The halftime quiz was tough. No one got all the Atlas Obscura questions for the point, and only one team got the other two points: Civic Virtue!
I loved the Atlas Obscura assist this year and hope they’ll be back for more! The Pros had one team come close to a perfect round: Flatlanders scored a 29 to stay competitive and seal their spot in second. Next year could be their year to finally lay hands on the trophy! I’ve got a feeling they’re due.
It’s always such a pleasure to create this event and I’m gratified by how many of you attend and compete so passionately. I always learn so much as I research these questions.
My hope is that, even for the questions that you didn’t answer correctly, I was able to pass along something of what I discovered as I trawled through the amazing stories this city has to offer to present them to you as quiz questions.
Until next year!
