Major quizzing before Christmas

November 25, 2014 in Quizzes

Sorry everyone, I’m still not back in the swing of blogging. However, I do want to keep you all connected with the major events of the Irish Quiz Organisation’s calendar.

Our next event is a biggie.  We’re hosting a satellite event of the British Open.  It will take place on Saturday, December 6th, in the Addison Lodge, Dublin.  For more info, please visit quizireland.ie.

The day will also feature a social quiz, featuring ad-hoc teams made up on the day, with questions set by a very special quizmaster – namely me.  🙂

Upcoming quiz plans

March 7, 2014 in IQO, Quizzes

identify-the-flagsHi all. I’m afraid my life outside quizzing is still affecting my ability to (find the time to) post articles here on the site.

However, I am still managing to find the time to attend the odd quiz. Things would really be bad if I couldn’t do that.

In fact I have a few events coming up in the next few days. Tonight I will take part in a table quiz in aid of the IHCPT, a children’s charity, which is being held in the Dalton Inn in Claremorris. It’s down for 8pm so come on in too if you’re about.

Tomorrow (Saturday) will see the the IQO host their first big event of 2014. The 2014 Irish Open will take place in The Addison Lodge, Dublin. A full day of quizzing, featuring team, individual and social quizzes, it is open to all and all are welcome. For more information, check out the event page on Facebook: www.facebook.com/events/232690113582313/.

I’m afraid the Movies Quiz, previously announced for next Monday night in The King’s Head in Galway has been postponed. The next big quiz in the Galway venue will be the third annual Galway Food Festival Quiz, which will take place on the night of the Easter Monday public holiday. I better get preparing.

As it happens, I will be hosting a quiz next week. On Friday next, I’ll be asking the questions at a quiz in aid of the primary school I attended in my youth. That should be fun!

Right, now for a few questions to keep you interested. I was at a quiz (for the school attended by my daughter) on Wednesday night. I just turned up on my own and was recruited by a team of three ladies who had a spare seat at their table.
