At the end of the IFE Meet & Greet, we co-hosted a Virtual Fastener Bash & Trivia Contest with Cris Young of Fastener News Desk. Celebrity guest, Carmen Vertulo, asked the questions and prizes were donated by myself, Fastener News Desk, Volt Industrial Products, LINK Magazine and Solution Industries. Participants connected to the contest through their phones and answered the questions in real time and we immediately knew the results at the end of the contest. It went off better than I might have expected and was actually a lot of fun. For those who missed the quiz, here are the questions that were asked by Carmen. Later I plan to post a copy with the answers highlighted.
