Time to reassemble your trivia Avengers for another great fundraiser. Saturday, October 9th, geeks across the area will be able to participate in the biggest geek event of the month...Droids & Dragons Trivia!

Coastal Connection has brought together Origin Bank, CHRISTUS Health, and Geek'd Con to help support the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana. Here's how it works:

"Participants in this fun event will let their imaginations run wild choosing a team name, creating costumesdecorating their personal locations, and testing their geeky knowledge for this “far-out” event. Sign on for the event is 6:30 pm, costume and decoration judging at 6:45 pm, and trivia begins at 7:00 pm.  Best costume, decorations, team name will win awards as will high scoring teams for the evening!"

Here's what you need for your team:

- 8 to 10 People
- Costumes and Cosplay
- Decorations For Personal Trivia Area

You can get your team signed up here. This is a huge opportunity for businesses, social organizations, fraternities & sororities, school groups, bands, or just groups of friends. Not only could this fantastic event serve as a team-building exercise, or just some much needed fun with friends.

Not to mention, with the event being just a couple weeks before Halloween, you could use the event as an extra way to use your Halloween costume for this year.

Plus, this is all happening for a really good cause. More families are showing up to food banks than ever before, many for the first time. All proceeds go to the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana's backpack program. Chronically hungry children are provided with a backpack of food to take home for the weekend and holidays. Each 7-10 pound weekly bag includes items such as granola bars, fruit juice and pop top canned food. These bags will be sent home with students through combined efforts of teachers and food bank.

Geeks in our area have been craving local geeky events, since COVID has led to a cancellation of events like Geek'd Con this year. Which is why Geek'd Con is so excited to be a part of this phenomenal fundraising event.

Comic Book Movie Stars Who Have Worked In Shreveport

We utilized IMDB's filming location database to help put this together. However there is one movie listed there that we didn't include. IMDB lists X-Men Origins: Wolverine on their Shreveport list, but we struggled to find citing for this. So we just left it off. Some of these stars weren't in comic book "movies" specifically.

But we counted the Netflix Marvel shows, and MCU Disney+ shows as well.

We also added in an odd option...pro wrestlers. Pro wrestling has been a big deal in the Shreveport area for a long time, so we're going to include the wrestlers who've worked in the Shreveport area, and went on to comic book movie fame.
