Whilst not at all compulsory, it helps us enormously to have people paying in advance. You can do this via PayPal. Our PayPal account is payments@quizzing.co.uk - Thank you!

Hot 100

The WQC takes the place of the standard Hot100 paper for June. Ranking points are calculated as per normal though - i.e. your WQC score is converted into two-digits, representing your overall total (7 genres) as a percentage of the 2017 World Champion's score.

The monthly Hot 100 international quiz is a great training tool for the WQC as it's available at venues all over the country. Details can be found at http://www.worldquizrankings.com

Hi Jane x

I have been away for a few days, without the facility to get online. Just arrived back home on Monday night at midnight. Consequently seeing your plea only now.

I am HOPING that Dick and I, possibly plus Jim Fergusson may be attending. However, I know Dick has been unwell again, and I have not been able to contact him, nor JIm. I should be able to do so during Tuesday. If this is too late, then so be it - and I apologise. However, if you are able to give us some "wriggle room", as Chris likes to allow on the team quizzes, I will do my best to confirm one way or another during Tuesday - it won't be until the afternoon; I am at a funeral in the morning.

Love

Ken x
