We're having a Family Reunion/Memorial this coming weekend (Sunday, May 4th would have been my awesome grandmother's 100th birthday, but she sadly passed away just two months ago), and I am in charge of, among other duties, running the Trivia contest at the Welcome Dinner.
Most of the plans are all set, of course, but as this is an icebreaker I want to do it up right, and I am still adding to my list of challenging queries and over-analyzing the logistics of the thing. I have read the old threads on the Metafilter vs Reddit Pub Trivia contests, but I need a little more help.

1. Please provide your own favorite remembered trivia questions and matching answers from similar outings you've enjoyed. 'Favorite' here can mean most surprising, most obscure, most humorous--basically, whatever intrigued you enough that it stuck in your head. I am looking for all sorts of general interest questions and don't want to bias the contest unfairly in favor of my personal areas of interest.
2. What is the usual way to score this? I cannot remember specifically how it was handled in trivia contests where I participated, just that we had groups and we conferred about answers and then the highest scores won. So, do we have one Master Answer Sheet per group, where the group members pick their best answer for each question after conferring and have to stick with that, or are their individual answer sheets that all add up for a group total?
3. What first comes to your mind (in a GOOD way) when you think of Florida? I'd like to tie the prizes in with our Floridian setting and I have my own ideas and some stuff set aside. But, if you were to win a small souvenir from Florida, what would you most like it to be?
Thanks so much in advance for all your help, everyone!
