Some of us at QFI are old enough to remember a time when Chennaites completed sentences with an obscenity of choice as opposed to this ‘ji’ business. In Goundamani-Senthil style, we will respond to this abomination with not one ji but two GGs.
The biggest name in Chennai quizzing, Vijay Sarathy aka Gentle Giant will host our QF1. He’s extremely valued by the QFI and not just because he controls our finances. Each time someone asks us for directions to the QFI meeting, we simply ask them to look for the BFG (G stands for giant, we’ve heard different people fill up the rest differently).
Veteran quizzer Gautam Ghosh will host our team quiz. He’s still new to the place and was overheard referring to Red Hills as ‘proper Chennai’. We’d like to give him a rousing (English, not Chennai Tamil) welcome to the QFI and at the same time, warn him that our participants are not very different from some of the denizens he’d encounter in the vicinity of Red Hills..
The venue is PS Senior, Mylapore, and the session will begin at 10 a.m. Full address and other details are at the bottom of this announcement (just so you read through till the end). No fees or subscription or registration is necessary to take part. Just turn up on the day regardless of whether you want to participate or just watch.
