It's kind of like "Words With Friends," but with trivia

It's kind of like "Words With Friends," but with trivia

A Fayetteville company, MobileFWD, released a game called Trivi.al in the Apple Apps Store on June 21.

Matt Hudson, one of the founders of MobileFWD, said his company has the venture capital and -- hopefully -- the concept that will make the game a success. Trivi.al, as he describes it, is a trivia game that is powered by social networking. Players can challenge Facebook friends to games or find random opponents through the online service.

So far, the game is only available on iOS devices (iPhone, iPad and iPod). Should it catch on with Apple users, however, Hudson said the company will likely expand it to other mobile platforms.

Kids’ Fishing Fest at DeGray Lake Resort State Park

Saturday, June 16th from 8:00am to 12:00 pm, DeGray Lake Resort State Park will once again be hosting a fishing derby for children 12 years old and younger.  Golf course pond number 7 will be stocked with over 500 channel catfish to increase the chances that all the young anglers will score a big catch.  1st through 5th place trophies will be awarded in two age groups for the heaviest stringer of ten fish, and door prizes will be drawn hourly during the derby. 

Participants should bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, drinking water, umbrella, bait, and tackle.  Adults may assist children, but must not fish themselves.  Only one pole per child will be allowed.

Parking will be available across from the horse stables.  The event is co-sponsored by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission and is free and open to the public.  Advanced registration is not necessary- all participants will be registered upon arrival.

No Mistaking Lukas’ Optimism Over Optimizer

 

Trainer D. Wayne Lukas holds records for Triple Crown race and Kentucky Derby (G1) starts and is in the Hall of Fame for his mastery of the marquee races over the last 30-plus years, yet Bluegrass Hall’s          Optimizer has the 72-year-old acting like a one-horse conditioner after his fast-closing runner-up finish in the $500,000 Rebel Stakes (G2) last week at Oaklawn.

 

“He’s down the shedrow packed in Styrofoam and I’ve set up a rollaway bed to keep an eye on him,” joked Lukas. “I have to take sleeping pills at night, because he’s got me awake at night with excitement. We’ll be keeping a very watchful eye on him this next month.”
