QFI Meeting on Sunday, 4th September 2016

QFI fortnightly meetings are back. We will be meeting on Sunday, 4th September at PS Senior School, Mylapore.

Starting this week, we will be kicking off a new QF1 series. The first quiz of the series will be conducted by Vijay Sarathy, aka Gentle Giant. Other quiz clubs may have UNESCO certified quiz masters but our very own GG has been certified by WWF to be the world’s tallest quiz master.

The regular quiz has been set and researched by Major Chandrakant Nair.

If you’ve never been to a QFI meeting before, this would be the right one to attend. Both GG and Major have done some spectacular quizzes for us in the past and their quizzes are well regarded all over the country. In other words, if one were to publish a series of WWE style trump cards featuring quiz masters, Major would be Hulk Hogan and GG would be, well, The Big Show.

Note – QF1 is a 30-question prelims style quiz, part of a larger programme called ‘QF1: The QFI Points Race’. It will be a part of every QFI session and we plan to have close to 20+ such quizzes every year. Participants attempt the quiz solo. It will be a 30 question written quiz in the vein of the preliminary rounds of popular quizzes like the Landmark Quiz. The written solo quiz will be followed by a regular team quiz in the bounce/pounce format, for all the participants. There will be no elimination or selection based on the written quiz. The teams for the team quiz will be formed on the spot through our random team formation which ensures that everyone present gets to be a part of a team. You do not need to come with a team to participate in either of the quizzes.

For the information of newcomers, QFI offers annual subscriptions on a calendar year basis and paying subscribers receive all our quizzes by email.
