Pub Quiz 2

The first Pub Quiz conducted by SEQC (QMed by Nitish Wagle) was quite a roaring success. There was a reasonable SEQC crowd, but also substantial participation from others.

The second of these events will be held this Friday, November 28, starting 8.30pm. I'll be conducting this one, and with the aim of having large numbers of drunken women present, have decided to do it as a slightly-more woman-centric quiz than our quizzes tend to be (which is not saying much, though). Srijit is going along with the idea, and has agreed to try and work out some special deals for women who attend.

But don't be put off if you're a man. We've had it good for aeons, and this night will be no different. So, whatever your sex, and whatever your inclinations, land up for a night or revelry with some questions (and prizes) thrown in.

Date: 28th November 2014
Time: 8.30 pm
Venue: Neptune Bar, above Earthen Oven, Candolim
QM: Aniruddha Sen Gupta
Flavour: Food, drink and entertainment
Participation: Open to all adults, entry free.

The 2nd Voyage of 'Around the World in 30 Questions'

The 2nd Voyage of 'Around the World in 30 Questions' will commence at 5pm on Sunday November 16 at the Urban Health Centre in Margao. All those who were present for the 1st Voyage, held at the ICG on October 19, are requested to try and turn up, as the teams will remain the same as they were for that trip. New sailors will be added to the existing teams, starting from the currently lowest-placed team. The three lowest-placed teams will also be allowed to 'poach' a team member each from the teams above them. Plus there are a few other changes in format to make the game even more exciting.

Announcing the CMQ movie quiz

SEQC will be conducting CMQ, a Movie Quiz, at the Gomant Vidya Niketan near the Municipal Garden in Margao, starting 10am on Sunday November 16. The quiz, organised in association with CineMagic, a Margao-based movie club, is open to all, and there is no entry fee. It will be in a non-competitive format, with all those who land up divided into six teams. The quiz will cover all forms of cinema, national and international, with a bit of a bias towards Bollywood and Hollywood, as that's what we all know best.

November 16 – a Day of Quizzing in Margao

Sunday, November 16, is going to be a Day of Quizzing in Margao (DoQiM). In the morning, we will have the CMQ Movie Quiz from 10am to 1pm at the Gomant Vidya Niketan (GVN).

Then we will take a break for lunch, after which we intend to get together at the Urban Health Centre (UHC) opposite the Hospicio Hospital for a few rounds of what we call Khatkhate quizzing, where various QMs run 6-12 questions each. This will be on from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

After a break for chai, we will commence with the 2nd Voyage of 'Around the World in 30 Questions', which will last from 5pm to 7.30pm or so.

Anyone wanting to car pool, or kids looking for lifts, please call Rajiv on 9890141715, Annie on 9527291947 or Anjali on 9860089733.
