History buffs face off in first ever Hillbilly Games

Last Thursday, Feb. 19, the “Hillbilly Games” were held at the Idyllwild Library. The first event pitted two teams in a game of Idyllwild Jeopardy. Here, members of Team One — Barbara Hunt, Bud Hunt and Gina Genis — prepare to answer the first question, “Who was named homecoming queen the same year her brother, David, came home from the Air Force?” All the questions were based on archived copies of the Idyllwild Town Crier, available at the Idyllwild Library or online, from1949 through1956.

What was so unusual about these two being loose in the woods?“ Photos by Gallagher Goodland
