Saturday next, June 1st, is the date for this year’s World Quizzing Championships. This event takes place in 36 countries during the course of the day, with the results in the many venues being sent back to the International Quizzing Association for collation. The new world champion will then be announced in the early hours of Sunday morning.
A full day of quizzing will take place in the Addison Lodge, Botanic Road, Dublin. Here is the timetable for the day’s events:
11:30-12:30 World Championship Paper 1
12:30-13:00 Correcting Paper 1
13:00-13:45 Break for lunch
13:45-14:45 World Championship Paper 2
14:45-15:15 Correction Paper 2
15:30-17:00 Fun social team quiz (questions by yours truly)
These events will then be followed by the AGM of Irish Quiz Organisation and some informal team v team quizzing.
It promises to be a great day and all are welcome! Admission for the full day is just €10. If you’d like to take part, you can register in advance via this page: wqc2013.eventbrite.ie. That’s not compulsory though; you can simply pay on the day should you choose.
I hope to see you all there!
