The BQC Open Quizzes 2013 Are Coming!

BQC Open Quizzes 2013 PosterAnd with that Paul Revere-esque opening, we'd like to invite you to attend our third annual weekend of competitive quizzing in this tiny western outpost of the country.

We're hosting six quizzes over two days (2-3 March, 2013), and we'd like to have as many people over as we possibly can. Last year, we had a most wonderful turnout, and we're hoping to top that this year.

Not only have we scheduled the events so that locals and visitors from out of town can make it to the events and back comfortably, we've also put together a wide range of topics for our quizzes, and INR 60,000 in prize money.

Schedule, venue and other fun details of the event below:

The Venue: Bhagini Samaj Hall, Road No. 3, Hindu Colony, Dadar (E), Mumbai - 400014.
