This could be Rotterdam…

This year’s European Quizzing Championships will kick off this afternoon in Rotterdam. You can find out more about it via the following link: www.europeanquizzingchampionships.com.
After taking a year off last year, I am currently en route to this year’s event. (Aside: thank you Dublin Airport and your free wifi.) Ireland are sending a five-person team this year: David Lea, Kevin Jones, Lorcan Duff, Mark Henry and myself.
Guess who’s fifth-ranked out of the group? Yes, ’tis me. That means I obviously won’t be a member of the Nations Cup team (aside: #coybig!) but I will still get to take part in all the events.
Here’s the weekend’s quizzing schedule:
16:15 National Teams and Aspirational Cup qualifying
20:30 National Teams and Aspirational Cup semi-finals, and placings matches
22:45 Fun Dutch Quiz
9:30 Individual Quiz (part 1)
13:30 Individual Quiz final
15:00 Aspirational Cup final and final round of placing matches
19:30 Club Team championship
23:00 Hot 100
10:00 Pairs Championship
14:00 National Teams final
Stay tuned to the blog here for my reports on each of the events and how the Irish team got on.
