Northampton Grand Prix

Postby Chris » Sun Feb 10, 2013 3:20 pm

Saturday 2nd March 2013 will see us in St Crispins Social Club, Duston once again for what has for some years now been the most eagerly awaited and best attended Grand Prix event of the annual calendar. This year's event, the tenth, will be tinged with a little sadness in that it will feature Nic Paul's very popular questions for the final time (for the foreseeable future). Nic's activities outside the quiz circuit are making increasing demands on his time and this militates against his being able to commit to writing all the questions for this annual event (which will, nevertheless, still feature on the circuit). So, more reasons than ever to attend this GP, the tenth in which Nic has done so much for us and his local charities who benefit from the proceedings!

A sign-up thread for this event can be found HERE. While not at all mandatory, it will greatly assist us if you could make payment prior to the event via PayPal. You don't need to even have a PayPal account to make a payment. Just visit the paypal.co.uk website and click on the "send money" button. The address to send it to (when asked for our e-mail address) is payments@quizzing.co.uk.

St Crispin's Club
