AMENDED 20.45hrs Fri 24 Jan

We now have 54 people signed-up for the Grand Prix in Edinburgh. Please see a later post in his thread, we are not that far from capacity now. Some 16 of the 53 have signed up for the curry.

THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NOT YET BOOKED... please note we've space in the main room for a dozen more people. After we reach 'capacity' anyone else booking will be accommodated in the adjoining room (for the individual quizzes only), where we have room for perhaps a dozen more. We do have an audio feed into that side room and there will be a presentation on laptop for the answers/marking session after each quiz. For the team quiz in the afternoon we can squeeze those dozen extras into the main room where table space is not so much of an issue - in the team quiz you are supposed to be able to see what your neighbour is writing down :)

So, please be aware, if you leave it too late to register you could find yourself 'locked-out'! We've only room for a maximum 76 for the individual quizzes and 72 for the team (helpfully as it happens a handful of people can't stay for the final session!). As Fred Pontin would have said, "Book early!"

If anyone is having difficulty 'regestering' by posting to this thread, just drop me an e-mail - the address being... chris at worldquizzing dot com Tx!

Regarding the evening meal; mine host Ewan has negotiated a table for 18 - that's the most that the restaurant is going to be able to accommodate - at the Indian restaurant (the initial booking was for 12 and we've now got 16 names). So, we've room for just two more there. If you want to add your name to the list for the trip to the restaurant, please note it's a set menu and will cost you circa £19-£20. Please don't 'book' unless you are definitely coming since Ewan has to pay a deposit and we may be charged for empty seats!

Hi Chris,
Sorry, I edited a previous post to add the names Stuart Robinson and Niall Pringle (both full day, no curry).
Also Steve Robinson, Dan Sheehy and Grant Catto are all confirmed.
Colin Cruikshank is only coming for the team quiz and curry.

Cheers,

Ewan



[Tx for that. Have updated my master list, and the one in the preceding post. This first mentioned has extra detail on it (re lunches etc.) and it contained a note that Colin was p.m. only but since, ultimately, it's the afternoon session when we're likely to be up against an absolute capacity issue, I thought it appropriate to list him among the attendees (if only so he could be sure of his very welcome place!). Onwards and upwards! Regards, Chris]
