March Events - Cancelled

Postby Jane » Sun Feb 25, 2018 11:01 am

Further to the notices posted last night on Facebook, Quizzing.co.uk and QUEST, it is with great regret that we have to announce that we are cancelling the UK Grand Prix quizzes at all venues tomorrow. The snow has set in around Northampton (and further afield). Nic says you can no longer get up the access road to the venue and the caterer is struggling to get staff through the snow as well. Other people from around the country are reporting trains being cancelled and heavy snow preventing them from travelling. Clearly the conditions are far too dangerous for people to travel.

We had a Plan B in place, but this assumed most people would be able to get to the main venues, so we are now activating Plan C…

April is the new March! Saturday 7 April events will take place in Edinburgh and Northants to the same schedules as was planned for tomorrow. It will NOT be a QUEST local event, with one exception, which is that there will be a venue in Canterbury as the host has arranged things there to support the event that can’t easily be unpicked.

If you had registered for March, Jules is moving your entry to April – at whichever venue you had signed up to. If you cannot make it, or wish to switch venue, you just go into QUEST and click the button next the venue that says ‘Amend’. Once you have cancelled, you can rebook at another venue if you wish. If you were registered for tomorrow’s event and plan to come to April, there’s no need for you to do anything.

Some people had registered at the April events in England, so we are moving all of you to the Northants venue.

For those who want their monthly quiz fix, the Americas quiz and the Hot 100 will be available to play in various locations around the country next weekend. Please see https://quest.quizzing.com/#/enter/100229 - you don’t have to play the Americas quiz if you don’t want to, you can just play the Hot 100. The price for both is usually £12.50 (H100 and Americas), but we are reducing this to £7.50 as you have all been inconvenienced. If you just want to play the H100 on its own it is £3.50.

Tomorrow’s event would have been the 15th anniversary of us running quiz events in the UK and we were very proud that we had never had to cancel one, so you can imagine our disappointment. We humbly apologise and hope you understand that this really is beyond our control and people’s safety is paramount.

For those of you who have paid by PayPal, we can either refund your money, or use it for April. If you want the money back, drop me (Jane) an email.

Much love

Jane and Chris x

I am sure all quizzers join in saying we understand entirely. No need for you to "humbly apologise" Jane. It is what it is.

As you say, entirely beyond your control. What you CAN control, you always do with great care and consideration of us quizzers.

Thank you.
