Final Details of First Quiz Meet

After looking at comments and a couple of mails, it seems like 11 am is too early for most. Hence, here are the details for the first quiz meet.

Venue: Tea Center, Churchgate (It's quieter)
Time: 12:30 pm
Format: Everyone brings 10 questions (any format, audio, video, visuals, dry)
  1. Decide on how to take Bombay Quiz Club forward (including deciding a better venue)
  2. Have fun while quizzing on 'original' quiz questions.
In case of any questions/ confirmations/ requests to hold on for a minute while you arrive with refreshments in tow, call Milo at 9833115875 or Dhoomketu at 9811801913.

First Quiz on April 1

Plan is to meet at 11 am or so and quiz.

The time, venue and format is still up for debate.
The options for the format are:

1) Lone-Wolf/ Team Quiz (if there are more than 20 confirmed participants) - Prelims followed by Finals
2) Quiz Party - Everyone brings in 10 'original'* questions and we have questions with beer.

The 2nd option seems more feasible for the first quiz meeting. Send in your comments/ suggestions/ confirmations.

Also, current choices for venue are Cafe Mondegar and Tea Centre. If anyone can offer a better quieter place, it would be nice.

We have 6 confirmed attendees. We think it's a start.

* original here stands for new, researched, factual questions which you can legitimately call your own. It's nicer that way.

First Entry

Intelligent life on a planet comes of age when it first works out the reason for its own existence. If superior creatures from space ever visit earth, the first question they will ask, in order to assess the level of our civilization, is: "Have they discovered evolution yet?"*

Till the time we work out the reason for our own existence, we will ask ourselves questions. That's why we are here.
