World Quiz day timetable

May 5, 2012 in IQO

As announced on Facebook last evening, the Irish heat of the World Quizzing Championship now has a home. It will take place in The Bounty, which is the clubhouse at Buccaneers Rugby Club, Ahtlone, Co. Westmeath, on Saturday, June 2nd.

This is a solo quizzing event and is run along the lines of a day during the Junior or Leaving Certificates. Albeit, a short day at the Leaving Cert, as the two papers are only one hour long each.

Here’s the timetable for the day’s events:

  • 11am: Paper 1
  • 12 noon: Correction of paper 1
  • 12.30pm: Lunch
  • 1.30pm: Paper 2
  • 2.30pm: Correction of paper 2
  • 3pm: Results and presentation of local awards*
  • 3.30pm: Innaugural meeting of the Irish Quiz Organisation

For more information on how the event is run, please read my report on last year’s event or visit the International Quizzing Association’s site

It costs €5 per person to enter and all are welcome.  Please book your place in advance though as we have to print out a copy of the two papers for each competitor.  You can do so via email at


* We will have small awards for the best result in the venue in the various categories.  For more info, check out the worldquizzing site.
