QFI Chennai will hold its annual Grandmaster event on Sunday, 21st July. For those unfamiliar with the Grandmaster quiz, it is a solo quiz that starts with a written prelim. The top 16 scorers move into a semifinal and at the end of it the top 8 move into the final round. And finally, after a grueling yet enjoyable day of quizzing a winner emerges out of these 8.
Details of the forthcoming Sunday quiz session:
Date – 21st July (Sunday)
Venue – PS Senior Secondary School, #33, Alarmelmangapuram, Mylapore, Chennai 600004
Time – 10 AM – 5 PM (yes, you read that right, 5 PM!)
QF1 GM quizmaster: Srinath Bhashyam
Previous QFI Grandmasters include Srinath Bhashyam (2018), Kiran Vijayakumar (2009, 2015, 2017), Jayakanthan (2006, 2012, 2014, 2016), Samanth Subramanian (2005, 2008, 2013), Gopal Kidao (2011), Rajiv Rai (2010) and Swaminathan G (2007).
As is tradition, the quiz will be done by last year’s winner and so Srinath Bhashyam will hold the reins this time. He has promised a small matter of 170 questions (40 in the prelim + 65 in the semi + 65 in the final), so you are guaranteed a long and rewarding day of quizzing.
The venue is P. S. Senior Secondary School in Mylapore, and the session will begin at 10 a.m. No fees or subscription or registration is necessary to take part. Just turn up on the day, for one or both of the quizzes, whether you want to participate or just watch.
Additionally, if you haven’t already, mark your calendar for QFIesta, our annual quiz fest at the CP Arts Centre, Alwarpet on August 3 and 4. There are five quizzes – Two General, one Lit Art, one Entertainment and one Sports quiz – with cash prizes for all winners. Details have been mailed earlier this month.
