KQA MindSweep Quiz - Sun 17 May

Postby Chris » Sat May 09, 2015 11:53 pm

Once again I will be proctoring the UK venue for participation in this popular quiz authored and run by the KQA in Bangalore, India. It is hoped a dozen quizzers or more will gather to take part and enjoy a buffet lunch afterwards.

Start at 12.00 noon. Buffet circa 2.45. Price £6, all-in.

Anne Hegerty, Ian Wellham, Iwan Thomas, Pat Gibson, and Pete Daniel are already expected to join me to take the quiz. How's about you then?

Please feel free to contact me if you require info on hotels etc..

Congratulations to Pat Gibson, MindSweep champion for 2015. Well done also to Kevin Ashman who tied with our good friend Dorjana Sirola in Croatia for second place. Other UK players in the top 10 were Andy Tucker in 4th place and Anne Hegerty in 6th. The UK had two other finishers in the top 20, tied in 17th place with Mark Ryder of the USA and Manu Sudhakar of India were Barry Simmons, and some bloke called Chris Jones.
