Trivia at VTG

We have an important update regarding Trivia with a Twist! This year trivia tables will need to be booked by the team captain, who will be responsible for booking the table and paying for the entire table when they register ($200).

Once the team captain has registered, they simply send the team code to their team to register for the same trivia table. Each competitor will then register as normal for their events and enter the team code for the trivia table.  

Individual team members will not be charged for the seat as this will have been covered by the team captain.

The team captain is then responsible for collecting funds from each participant (each seat is $20). VTG takes no responsibility for the exchanging of fees between team members.

For those wishing to secure their place but do not have a full table, reach out to the VTG family - see our Join A Team Facebook event!


 

Can I connect with VTG on social media?

Take a moment to “Like” our Facebook Page, follow VTG on Instagram and Follow VTG on Twitter, this will ensure that you stay in the know with the latest information.


 

Can I register my fellow colleagues?

You are able to register your teammates and pay for their fees. As such, you are able to register an entire team within one registration, however, all fees for each team member will be applied.


 

Can I get a refund if I can’t make it anymore?

We have a strict refund policy. Please be aware that refunds are only granted in exceptional circumstances & any requests for refunds must be made by 5:00 pm, Friday 23 August 2019.


 

Which browser should I be using when registering online?

Chrome, Firefox and Safari are all browsers that are compatible.


 

I see the sport I am competing in has multiple days. Do I need to compete in both?

No, although some sports are on multiple days, each day of competition is isolated. Therefore each day the event begins and ends on that particular day you have chosen to compete.

There are some sports that are half-day events, giving you the option to attend an event in the morning and then choose a different event in the afternoon.
