    Looking once more for the Best Quizzer in Goa

    For two years now, SEQC has been posing the same question: who's the best quizzer in Goa? It's time to find an answer to this question a third time around.

    The BiG Q 2011, which expands to the 'Best-in-Goa Quizzer' will be held on Sunday, October 23. This is the BiG Q’s third year, following on from two successful editions. The BiG Q went from 80 participants across three venues in 2009 to more than 120 in four locations last year. This year, too, the event will be conducted simultaneously in Margao, Panjim, Ponda and Vasco, and it is hoped that the turnout will be significantly larger than last year.

    The BiG Q is a written quiz for solo participants, with 120 questions to be answered in 90 minutes. Reporting time at the venues is 10am. This year, the BiG Q is being set by last year’s overall winner, Arun Hiregange, with help from Movin Miranda. Both of them are among the top in the country.

    Entry to the quiz is free, and open to all, from the youngest school student to the sprightliest senior citizen. There are prizes for Best Open Quizzer and Best School Quizzer (for students of up to Class XII) at each of the four locations, plus a special prize for the Best-in-Goa Quizzer.

    Pre-registration is essential for participation. To register, e-mail, using the Subject line 'BiGQ2011 registration' and mentioning in the body of the message your name, contact details and the city where you will take the quiz.

    The venues at which the competition will be held in different cities will be announced here soon.
