The BQC Schedule for November and December...

... is as follows:

November 2: Arun Srinivas is QM.
November 16: Mitesh Agarwal
November 30: Atul Mathew
December 14: Aadisht Khanna
December 21: Arvind Krishnaswamy

Souvik Basu and Shambhu Shankar will probably conduct the one after that, but the entire schedule is tentative -- look for confirmations on this blog the week before the quiz is due.

For now, I can confirm that the 14th official quiz of BQC's third season will be conducted this Sunday by Arun Srinivas. The details are below: note that besides the date, they apply for all BQC quizzes.

QM: Arun Srinivas

Time: 3:00 pm, Sunday, November 2, 2008 (Please be there by 2:40 pm)

Venue 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.

Newcomers are welcome at BQC quizzes, and do not need to form teams before coming. Teams are normally formed by a draw of lots at the venue itself, and everybody gets to take part. The questions are generally not the boring "you-know-it-or-you-don't" types, but accessible and workoutable ones.

They are referred to as "workoutable" because the venue is directly below a gym and lots of people are working out above even as the quiz is in progress.
