The first quiz of Year 4 will be a celebration of sorts. Firstly, we'll all engage in some mutual back-slapping for keeping SEQC going through an unbroken three years of quizzing. Secondly, we'll applaud Annie for retaining his SEQC Champion crown, and plot ways and means to foil him next year. (I have already received one suggestion to spike his drink with something nasty on the eve of a quiz). And thirdly, we'll all breath a collective sigh of relief that we're back to the 5 pm timing and don't have to quiz at the expense of our precious Sunday afternoon siestas (I know at least one of us who'll say that's the main reason to celebrate).

Date: 5th June 2011
Time: 5 pm
