We are pleased to announce that our next Grand Prix quiz event will be held on Saturday 3 December near Burton upon Trent.

Full details can be found here. This thread, however, is for you to sign-up to say you are coming.

If you are coming for the morning only, please say so and I will do my best to see you leave the venue with a copy of the afternoon's team quiz!

I can't make up my mind whether to sign up for this as it is advertised as having an international slant. I still haven't managed to memorise the names of those Estonian basketball players - even after all these years.

An evil question matter replies:

Aud, it's not going to be quite as 'international' in that sense (no questions beginning "While not yet the best known Somali string quartet..."). It's more a matter of avoiding the parochial. Think of the companion quiz, the annual 'Norway Open.
