April 30, 2012 in IQO
Allow me to introduce the Irish Quiz Organisation, a body I’m endevouring to set up between now and the end of June.
In the short-term, it will take care of the organisation of the Irish heat of the World Quizzing Championships and the selection of a team for the European Quizzing Championships.
In the longer-term, hopefully it will eventually oversee competitive quizzing in Ireland. I can forsee events such as resurrection of the (formerly Rehab) All-Ireland table quiz, helping third-level students restart Challenging Times and maybe even the creation of a Belgian-style individual quiz rankings ladder.
That’s all in the far future though. Right now, it’s me on my lonesome.
The WQC takes place on June 2 and the afore-mentioned Irish heat will take place. I’ve yet to nail down a venue but hope to have that done by the end of the week. At that event, we will then convene the inaugural meeting of the IQO and, all going well, elect a committee for the coming year.
That’s all I can tell you for now. If you’d like some more info, please visit the IQO page on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/IrishQuiz.
