Moseley Annual Quiz Evening

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and your youth group to join us at our Annual Quiz Evening, to be held on Saturday 9th February 2013, God willing. This year'€™s venue will be: Hall Green Christadelphian Hall, 20 Springfield Road, Moseley, Birmingham, B13 9NW. A location map is available on request. 

The evening will commence at 6.00pm promptly with a short Bible talk, followed by the quiz. We hope the evening will conclude by about 8.30pm.
If you have not joined us for the quiz evening before, do come along and find out what you have been missing. The quiz is an enjoyable evening for all, no matter what your knowledge and knowledge doesn'€™t really help that much! The quiz is general knowledge with a mixture of bible-based and other rounds.

There will be about ten rounds of questions; each round being eight to ten questions. The Question Master will put all questions to the team verbally. Answers to each round will be on a piece of paper, and all members of the team collectively join together to answer them. We would emphasise that no one will be asked questions directly, so no one will be put on the spot and made to look silly if they don'€™t know the answers it is a written team quiz.

There is no limit to the number of teams that one CYC can enter, but could you please note that each team is to consist of five members, one of whom should be a leader, and the combined age of the other four members must not exceed 65 years. It would be useful to have a spread of ages, including those of Junior CYC age, as there will be questions aimed specifically at the younger team members, who may be the only ones who will know the answers. The scorers will mark each round at the same time as the next round's questions are being asked. An overall score for the round will be noted, but no indication of which questions were answered rightly or wrongly will be given, so as to avoid embarrassment in not knowing the answer to a specific question.

The entrance fee will be £5.00 per team. The four younger members of the winning team will each receive a £5.00 gift voucher, which can be spent at the Christadelphian Office. The leader in each team will not receive a prize. The team winning the competition, as well as the teams finishing second and third will each receive a framed certificate to keep.

I would be grateful if you could let me know if you are entering a team, or teams, by Tuesday 5th February, so that we can do a little bit of pre-planning. If there are any other points that you need clarifying, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Your brother in Christ,
