As the proprietor of the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh I'm very much looking forward to taking part in this and to meeting everyone on the day. I was delighted to help when Brian Pendreigh approached me with the idea and many thanks to Chris and Jane for their assistance with everything. As a recent convert to the world of quizzing I'm approaching the quiz itself with a touch of trepidation. I've taken part in the last 3 Hot 100s and enjoyed them greatly, even if my scores have been decidedly modest, but as a quizzing novice I now have a keener appreciation of just how good the top quizzers are! Roll on the 2nd of June. :D
