HSVGazette.com had a five-day trivia contest called, “How Well Do You Know Your Board Directors?” We asked all seven Hot Springs Village POA Board Directors to submit trivia facts. We published one fact for each Board Member five days in a row, for a total of 35 trivia questions.

The questions/trivia facts submitted were interesting and no doubt we all learned a few things about our Board Members. They have all led an interesting and vibrant life.

We are pleased to announce the winner of the contest is Patsy Davis. Ms. Davis was the only contestant to answer all 35 questions, with a total of 29 correct answers. Patsy is the winner of a $50 gift card to Melinda’s Cafe and Coffee.

Thank you!

A GREAT BIG shoutout to the Board Directors who were very good sports to help HSVGazette.com with this trivia contest.
