Some Chennai wit called our 2010 anniversary ‘the Woodstock of Quizzing’. On the same theme, another Chennai wag sent us the suggestion that we should call this year’s anniversary ‘a KQArian Exposition of Peace, Love and Quizzing’.
We blenched a little bit and complained a lot about the consequences of exposure to the Cooum. Having recovered, we now undertake to provide the quizzing; those who turn up will have to organise their own peace and love.
The events planned:
June 24th: 1600hrs onwards
History of Ideas Quiz, followed by the Travel Quiz.
Both are for teams of two members.
June 25th: 0930hrs onwards
