QuizStock 2014

QuizStock, the SEQC Festival of Quizzing, returns in January 2014!
In January this year, we held the first edition of QuizStock, to a reasonable response. The second time around, it's a little bigger, with five quizzes spread across the weekend of the 11th and 12th of January, conducted by different QMs. The festival will be held in association with the International Centre Goa (ICG), which will serve as the venue. 

All the quizzes are open for all, and entry is free. A few of them will be in a non-competitive format, with teams being made up from all those who attend. For the competitive quizzes, teams will consist of two or three persons (see individual quiz listings below). Teams can be registered in advance by e-mailing seqcgoa@gmail.com, or made up on the spot. We are rounding up prizes, so there should be some for the competitive quizzes.

Here's the detailed schedule:

Saturday January 11

3pm-4.30pm: Miles To Go
A written travel and tourism quiz, for teams of two. QM: Rajiv D'Silva

5pm-8.30pm: Goa Open
SEQC's biggest annual open quiz. For teams of two. Should hopefully have some decent prize money! QM: Aniruddha Sen Gupta

SEQC Movie Quiz

If you like the life cinematic, the SEQC Movie Quiz will test the limits of your knowledge of the subject. From 'Birth of a Nation' to 'Death at a Funeral', from KieĊ›lowski to 'Kissa Kursi Ka', from Mammootty to 'Mamma Mia', from 'Dhoom' to zoom, the quiz will cover the span of all things filmi and filmic.

The quiz will be held in a non-competitive format, with all those who turn up being slotted into teams on the spot. It's likely to be a long event, so we'll start at 5pm sharp. Come a little before, so you don't miss out on any of the lights/camera/action!

Venue: Mandovi Hall, International Centre Goa (ICG), Dona Paula
Date: Sunday December 22
Time: 5pm
QM: Aniruddha Sen Gupta
Flavour: Hollywood, Bollywood, all the other woods; regional, national and international cinema
