The annual Inter-Pub Quiz takes place in Ballyhaunis, Co Mayo, on Thursday night next at 9pm. Indeed, it is the opening event in this year’s Ballyhaunis Summer Festival.
For those who didn’t see my report on last year’s event, this quiz is quite a novel one. Basically, everyone who wants to take part gets in to their pub of choice by 9pm. There is only one answer sheet per pub so, thus, everyone who is inside the door is on that pub’s team. The pub’s radio is then tuned to a local, community frequency and the questions are read out over the airwaves. The quiz gets physical in between rounds as each pub has to dispatch a runner to return their answer sheet back to quiz HQ.
Last year’s event produced some amazing final scores. At the time, this prompted me to suggest that this year we’d gather as many blog fans as we could and attempt to wrestle victory from the mighty Gill’s. However, I’m afraid it has snuck up on me.
Still, if anyone’s near enough Ballyhaunis (or feels like travelling), you’re more than welcome. Email me and I’ll let you know where the tablequiz.net approved pub is.
