Northampton Grand Prix

Postby Jane » Mon Feb 08, 2016 11:06 pm

Saturday 5th March 2016 will see us in St Crispin's Social Club, Duston once again for what has for many years now been the most eagerly awaited and best attended Grand Prix event of the calendar.

While not at all mandatory, due to expected high numbers, 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 website and click on the "send money" button. The address to send it to (when asked for our e-mail address) is


St Crispin's Club
Berrywood Road

Daytime Schedule
11.00 Registration
11.30 Individual Quiz
13.00 Marking
13.45 Lunch
15.00 Team Quiz
16.30 Prizes
16.45 Hot 100
18.00 Informal quizzing and evening curry (both WELL WORTH staying for!!!!).

Teams will be created on an ad hoc basis by the QM, in the interests of a more ‘level playing field’ and giving folk the chance to sit with someone new, perhaps.

Entry: £25, lunch provided, £12.50 for first time attendees.

PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE STAYING FOR THE EVENING CURRY - and whether you'd like chicken or veg curry. There is a charge for the evening meal - circa £7.


Once again we must warmly thank Nic Paul for liaising with St Crispin's club in Duston, which continues to be a hugely popular venue for people not least due to the good offices of Graham, a truly splendid caterer. And we thank all those who kindly helped Nic setting out tables first thing this morning. Cheers all.

We also need to thank Tony Gold for a splendid team quiz (as always!) and Cristian Pop for yet another entertaining Hot 100 Quiz - and thanks also to Indie road-testers Ian Bayley and Jane Allen.

I'd like to attend all the day's quizzing activities please, although I'll leave before the evening curry. If possible, I'd prefer a vegetarian lunch.

As usual, apologies for not using paypal, but I will pay cash on the day.

Hello Chris

Bob Haigh and Phil Bennion will be with me - sadly no curry as saving myself for Rochester?

All the best
