Hi All,

In case some of you are wondering as to how to reach the venue for Mahaquizzer,2006 in Bombay, here is what you need to do:

Mail from: Ashwan to the BQC:

The venue for Mahaquizzer in Mumbai will be the Sophia College Science auditorium.

You can get there via train or by bus.

The nearest station on the Western line is Grant Rd. Station; and you take bus 155 fromthere to Peddar Rd.

The nearest staion on the Central line is Bycullaand you take bus no. 63 (I think!.)

The lane is right next to Sterling apts (if you're coming via PeddarRd) or the turn at the Raymond showroom (on Bhulabhai Desai Rd)Registration can be done at the venue, but you'll have to arrive by9:30am.
