Edinburgh Grand Prix

Postby Jane » Fri Mar 11, 2016 10:43 am

We are delighted to be returning to Edinburgh, on 2nd April 2016 for our Grand Prix event. We are most grateful to Ewan McNaught for once again putting the concert room at his club at our disposal for this event and look forward to a number of people making the trip north to meet with the growing band of Scots quizzers who gather every month to take the Hot 100 quiz.

There is also a satellite event in southern England.


Edinburgh Schedule

11.00 Registration

11.30 Grand Prix Individual Quiz

13.15 Marking

14.00 Luncheon - included in price*

15.00 Fun Team Quiz (ad hoc teams drawn-up by quiz master)

16.30 Results and Prizes

16.45 Hot 100 Quiz (45 minute individual quiz, + marking)

17.45 Close of official event.


18.30 Visit to curry house - please note change of time (paid for separately - please let us know if you wish to join us so we can book in advance.)

* People with particular dietary requirements might like to make alternative lunch arrangements. If they contact me in advance we can agree a suitable discount on their admission cost.

Cost:
£25 all day, unless you are making your debut, in which case it's £12.50 (see note below).

For the purposes of quizzers resident north of the border, you'll be classed as making your debut if you have never attended a GP before AND you have yet to participate in TWO or more World/European Championship Quiz events. This effectively brings the Scots into line with the rules as they have applied to other GP debutantes in areas where the circuit has been operating now for many years.

Hi Mark,

happy to get together for some food and refreshments on Friday night. For those interested, we'll be meeting at the Voodoo Rooms at 8.00pm.

Local (Scottish-based) quizzers confirmed so far for Edinburgh GP:

Kevin Leetion
David Harris
Chris Cummins (will bring own lunch due to dietary requirements)
John Savage
Niall Pringle
Mike Clark
Innis Carson
Fraser McNicol
Ian Volante
Ailsa Watson
David Cruickshank

Btw, we have 11 confirmed for the Sat night curry at Khushi's so far. The original booking is for 14 and hopefully can be extended if required, but it's a very busy place on a Sat evening so please confirm ASAP if you fancy coming for the meal.

cheers,

Ewan

Hello,
I'm a very keen amateur quizzer living in Edinburgh and I would like to attend this event. I've never been to a quiz grand prix event before so could someone please send me a private message with further details?
Many thanks,
Jordan

Hi

I'm an Edinburgh based quizzer, and go to pub quizzes round the city when I can. Can I enter Saturdays event if there are places still available? Is it OK if I can pay on the day at Registration please?

This will be my first Quiz Grand Prix event.

Cheers

Phil Terras
