Hi Ian,

That's great! Welcome / fàilte.

A few of us will be going for a post-quiz curry close to the Voodoo Rooms, and then maybe a few fun quizzes after that. If you're up for it, please let Ewan know.

We're up to 20 confirmed now for Edinburgh. As Mark has said a few of us are going for a curry afterwards to Khushi's excellent Indian restaurant (7.00 pm). There are a limited number of places available as we are into the exceptionally busy pre-Christmas period, but let me know (or add to this thread) if you would like to come.
I've also arranged a room at the Voodoo Rooms for 4.30pm - 6.30pm for informal quizzing and socialising for those who would like to stay on.

Cheers,

Ewan

Ewan,

Continuing from where we left off recently, I'll be bringing some quizzes along in the format that we play in the Quiz League of London and Mersey Quiz Leagues to see how they suit you. They will range from very easy to very hard.
