Quizzers of the Year 9

As is our wont on anniversaries, during the break in the June monthly quiz, we handed out a couple of awards. One of them was a new idea -- to have a Junior Quizzer of the Year award, to be presented to the school or college quizzer who has the highest ranking in the year's Leaderboard. We had the idea rather late in the day, and so there was no trophy. That will happen from Year 10 onwards. This year, having to satisfy himself with some arbit prize, was a kid who's come a long way over the years, and who's done very well throughout the year, not least in leading his team of younglings to a third-place finish in the Decade-nce series that concluded in May -- Harsh Hegde.

Harsh gets his just rewards
The Quizzer of the Year award was retained by a man at the other end of the age spectrum, the very epitome of bearded intellectualism, the grouch with the slouch, the man who puts the red in well-read, Vidyadhar Gadgil.

The Captain of Cool gets his, from a most bewildered kid

SEQC turns 9...

Along with the Panjim monthly on 4/Jun/2017, we celebrated SEQC's 9th birthday. Kanchan Gatward made two cakes that were attacked in the break. Before we got all smudgy with the cake, we had the group photograph. Lynn Barreto Miranda managed to get us all to smile really well for it.


And you thought a Quiz Club would be peaceful!
Cutting cake is serious business. We have to watch carefully.
Me too, me too, me too...
Might as well make use of the photographer
