Hi,

This is to inform all you of a team quiz that is being organised on the 11th of March,2007. The details are as follows:

A General Quiz open to all members of the public.

Quizmasters: Priyambad and Raghuram

Venue: St. Francis College, Begumpet (this is located in the lane next to LifeStyle Building)

Date and Time: 11th March 2007, 10:00 am

Format: The quiz is open to all members of the general public who are interested. This quiz will follow a format in which participants will be randomly teamed up into teams of 3 at the time of the quiz itself. This is to provide all participants an equal opportunity at participating in a team quiz even if they do not have other team members in Hyderabad or even if they are new to quizzing itself. Some of the seasoned quizzers will recognise that this is the same format that has been followed very successfully at the quizzes organised by QFI, Chennai.

Prizes: Cash prizes for the top 3 teams plus gift vouchers from Odyssey Bookstore.

Entry Fee: Rs 25 per person.

In case of any clarifications please contact Nitish at 9885679460 or Priyambad at 9948453388. Please also drop a mail to quizhyd@gmail.com in case you intend on coming for the quiz. And also please forward the mail to all those who you think might be interested.

Hope to see you all there.

hey you know you must randomly arrange that in your quiz team a certain creature from the LOTR will be present. yes! the same one we used to find on our college campus, me, notably since it attended classes with me occasionally. yes! the same one quizzed to submission at the very beginning by good old Bilbo (there its no secret anymore). should i send you email? but then like a good hyderabadi said creature is bound to show up at said quiz.
hope they ask you something about Tsatziki or Cucumbers, so you can show them.
(Implicitly I assume that local events being posted on your page are local events you are thinking of attending).

[space bar] boo radley is the word. wish i was there for all 3 events. damn.

[kbpm] that LotR creature!! you are knownst to him. i forgot the same branch connection. he's a fairly elusive creature, though. have seen him like 4 times in 2 years.

your implicit assumption is explicitly wrong :( am off to home tomorrow, and will miss all 3 events. gah.
