iQa World Quizzing Championships 2012 - Edinburgh
Saturday 2 June
The Voodoo Rooms, 19a West Register Street, Edinburgh EH2 2AA
For the first time ever Scotland will have its own venue for the World Quizzing Championships this year. Around 1500 people took part last year, spread across every continent (except Antarctica) obviously.
It is a full day of quizzing, with an individual quiz in the morning, questions supplied by the International Quizzing Association, and a team quiz in the afternoon, organised by Colin Cruickshank, one of Scotland’s most experienced quizmasters, and Tony Gold, who sets questions for Only Connect.
Cost: £20, but with a 50% discount for anyone who has never been to an IQA or BQA event before = £10.
Please register in advance via firstname.lastname@example.org. It would help if you paid in advance, via PayPal to email@example.com, marking payments "WQC Scotland". You can also pay cash on the day.

We hope to cover costs and make a donation to St Columba’s Hospice.
