A Weekend Of Quizzing

There are two exciting quizzes coming up this weekend, both at our regular venue of Pinstorm (directions below). On Sunday we have our fortnightly BQC quiz -- this one is conducted by Abhishek Nagraj, with some inputs, I am told, from Niranjan Pednekar. It will this be an inquisition of the BQC by the BCQC, and if you need to ask for explanation of those acronyms, then you don't deserve one. So there.

Also, on Saturday, the Mumbai leg of the World Quizzing Championships will held at Pinstorm. The details of both quizzes follow:

Quiz 1: The World Quizzing Championships

Saturday, June 7 2008. (Registration: 4pm. The sessions run from 4.30 to 6.45. Timings non-negotiable as it takes place simultaneously across the world.)

Coordinators: Avinash Mudaliar and Kedar Sastry

Quiz 2: The BQC Quiz (No. 5 of Season 3)

When: 3:00 PM, Sunday, June 8, 2008. (Be there by 2.45 please.)

Quizmaster: Abhishek Nagraj

Location: Pinstorm, Ground Floor, Swati House (Next to Kotak Bank on Linking Road), North Avenue, Santa Cruz (W).


From the south: If you come north on Linking Road from Bandra to SantaCruz, you'll find a large Benetton Store on the right. At the end of that block is a Kotak Bank at the corner. Take a right and it's the next building, take the first gate and tell the sentry you've come for a meeting.

From the north: If you get on to Linking Road at the airplane park end, you'll cross a HDFC Bank. A block later, you'll see a Kotak Bank on the corner - do not cross it. Take a left at that point and it's the building next to Kotak Bank.

A report of the last quiz and the current league standings are here. Newcomers are welcome at both quizzes. The WQC will be a solo, written event, while teams for the Sunday quiz will be drawn by lots, so don't worry about searching for a partner etc. Unless you're lonesome.
