The Birth of The Justice Games

The Justice Games was conceived by great legal minds as a joint Inn activity for the Inns in Tampa, with the first event being held May 30, 2013.    The event is going strong with planning well under way for the Fifth Annual Justice Games to be held May 11, 2017, at a new venue THE TAMPA THEATRE.

Since then, The Justice Games have become a much anticipated annual event where all of Tampa’s Inns meet together for beverages, food and an evening of friendly competition, matching wits on legal matters from the lofty to the trivial.    The winning Inn gains possession of the impressive Justice Games trophy and bragging rights ….. until the next year.   There are also much-coveted awards for the Best Banner Contest and Inn Spirit Awards.

Each Inn must provide a team of ten to participate as contestants, ideally including all membership experience levels in the Inn.     Two members of each team participate in each round of questions.    The Host Inn determines the details of the rules each year.

The Inns take turns in having the privilege of hosting The Justice Games.     Each planning Inn tends to use its own creativity in planning for The Justice Games, often choosing an annual theme in addition to the traditional theme.    This year is no different.
