British Quiz Championships - Pairs - 2016

These graphics chart the progress of this year's competition, which saw welcome new winners in the form of Brian Chesney and Jeff Evans. Well done to them. We also congratulate losing finalists Anne Hegerty and Paul Sinha on being overall top scorers in the contest. Well done too to semi-finalists Alan Gibbs and Nick Mills, who were second top-scorers overall.

The first chart below shows the scores registered by each pair over the rounds of the quiz. The "ref" number in the first column shows the pairs' placings after the Preliminary round, the 'cut' for the knockout part of the contest coming after the 32nd placed team. Teams placed 33rd-50th in the preliminary round are shown in italics.

The second and third images show the progress of the 32 qualifiers through round 1, the quarter finals, semi finals, and final. Ties were settled, when necessary, by reference to scores in the preliminary round.

If you need to see any of the images in larger format, simply right click on it and chose "open in new tab".

IQA at TCONA 2016

Three of the IQA's directors (Chris, 'Doc', and Jane) are attending TCONA 6 in Las Vegas. They are running some 'sampler quizzes' to give our North American friends a taste of the sort of questions that will greet them should they attend the Quiz Olympiad in Athens in November 2016. On Friday 12 August they ran 75 minute team quiz for ten teams. Here are the results.

Saturday 13 August will see the IQA directors running a 90 minute taster quiz covering the IQA's individual, pairs, and team knock-out formats. This will run from 12 noon to 1.30pm.

Duston Grand Prix : 5th March 2016

Once again we must warmly thank Nic Paul for liaising with St Crispin's club in Duston which continues to be a hugely popular venue for people, not least due to the good offices of Graham, a truly splendid caterer. And we thank all those who kindly helped Nic setting out tables first thing this morning. Cheers all.

We also need to thank Tony Gold for a splendid team quiz (as always!) and Cristian Pop for yet another entertaining Hot 100 Quiz - and thanks also to Indie road-testers Ian Bayley and Jane Allen.
