Now that the mast of the SS QuizStock is edging into view over the horizon, throwing the quizmasters into a frenzy of activity, it seems like the right time to put out another announcement about the event.
The big change is that the two-day event will be held at a non-standard venue – the Clube Tennis de Gaspar Dias on Miramar Circle (in the small hall on Level One).
Here's the final line-up of quizzes to be held over the weekend of January 14-15, 2017:
Saturday January 14
10.30am-1.30pm Like Tweet Share Repeat: the Social Media Quiz
2.30pm-4.30pm Crime Quiz
5pm-8.30pm The Goa Open
Sunday January 15
9.30am-1pm The Pyongyang LitLang Zugzwang Satsang: a Quiz on Literature and Language
2pm-4pm Cruel and Unusual: the Punishment Quiz
4.30pm-6pm Master, Mind It! final
6pm-8.30pm The Endings Quiz, Period
Barring the first and the last, and of course the MMI Finals, all the other quizzes are competitive quizzes for pre-formed teams of three or fewer. The Social Media and Endings quizzes will be non-comp events where all comers will be divided into six teams on the spot. The MMI Final will feature four participants who are all that remain of a field of 24 who crossed swords in the competition which has been played out over the past three months.
The quizzes are open to all, and entry is free. No pre-registration is required for any of the events – just be there some 10-15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
