Celtic Nations 2015: prelude

April 25, 2015 in Celtics, Quizzes

CardiffThe third Celtic Nations quizzing championships kicks off this morning in Cardiff.  I am in place and raring to go!

As it happens, I won’t get to start competing straight away at 10am as a match between Wales and Scotland is the opening event.  A few of us on the Irish team will still be in action, so to speak, as we function as quiz-masters for three simultaneous matches between the two nations’ A, B and C teams.  We also provide the questions: in this instance, myself and Lorcan Duff combining for this first set of the weekend.

Following that, here’s the timetable for the rest of the day:

11am – 1pm Individual Quiz
1pm – 2pm <Lunch Break>
2pm – 4pm Team Quiz
4pm – 6pm Pairs Quiz
6:30pm – 7:30pm Ireland v Scotland A, B, C
7:30pm – 8:30pm Ireland v Wales A, B, C
8:30pm – 15 to 1 Tournament

That’s a lot of quizzing!  🙂

If you’d like more info during the day, check out the event’s Facebook page.  I’m sure it will be updated as events progress.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a report on how the Irish quizzers got on today.
