British Quizzing Championships - Need a 'Pair'?

Postby Chris » Wed Aug 15, 2012 5:33 pm

This thread is set up for those of you who are looking for a Pair with whom to compete in Lichfield.

Note: don't despair if you've not got a 'Pair' before the big day arrives. We will be deploying our unique 'matchmaking' system on the day.

OK; my "strengths" are science, history, geography, classical music and rock/pop before 1976. My big weaknesses are sport, TV, celebrities and rock/pop after 1976. If anyone has the oposite attributes, please get in touch.
Cheers!
Roderick

Unfortunately the gaps in my knowledge coincide with Roderick's

I will be likely to be looking to ber paired up.

Any chance Jesse, Kevin or Pat might decide to give up their normal partnerships and carry me?

Oh, and for the benefit of those who might be considering me in this "beauty contest"...

My best scores are normally on Lifestyle. Literature and Civilisation tend to be reasonable genres for me.

I am poor at Sport, so-so on Science and Nature. My knowledge of films is shamingly low. But I do OK on Music (that is, actual music - which means hardly anything after 2000, a bit in the 90s, and reasonable knowledge before then!

My history knowledge is fair, and I enjoy anything linguistically related (having some education in both Latin and Greek). As a lay preacher, my Bible knowledge is sound.

Oh, and <simpers> - "I want to see world peace, and would love to have a job working with animals and children...."*

* despite the "beauty contest" references, you really would NOT want to see me in a bathing costume!
