Quiz in the North

Saturday 16th December

A full day's convivial quizzing will be taking place next Saturday, 16th December, at The Cross Keys pub in Earle Street, Liverpool (just off Old Hall Street), beginning at 11.00am and running through until about 5.00pm.

There will be three main quizzes - an Individual written quiz, a team quiz and a special quiz (details to follow).

Amongst the quizzers attending will be members of the Eggheads and Chasers and you could play with them in the team quiz where the teams are drawn at random from all of the entrants.

The cost for the day's quality quizzing is just £5 per head (pay at the door), and food is available in the pub, or there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and sandwich shops within a short walk of the venue.

Please let us know in advance if you intend to come, either by signing up at Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/quiz-in-the-north-15-liverpool-tickets-38698886411?aff=eac2 or by telling us on the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/2143360435677857/

Question Problems 20th/21st November

After the problems experienced with question distribution last week, it has been decided that those matches that could not be played will be rescheduled until later in the season and will be played as double-headers on the dates of the return fixtures (12th/13th March 2018).  An extra set of questions will be provided for these matches.

Wirral Player on Mastermind

Ian Jacks of the Plasterers Arms will be appearing on Mastermind this Friday 3rd November at 8.00pm on BBC2.  He will be answering questions on The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell.

Please note that this heat was postponed due to the fact that one of the specialist subjects was the US version of House of Cards (featuring Kevin Spacey).  It is not know when (or indeed if) this heat will be transmitted.
