Like buses, you wait around for a big quiz for ages, and then two come along at the same time. I knew that the CIU finals in Derby are a week tomorrow on the 2nd September. What I didn´t realise was that the very next day is the Muriel Williams in Bridgend.
I knew it´s alwaysin September, but I didn´t know it was going to be quite so early this year. Or maybe it was said in the AGM, and I´ve just forgotten since, which come to think of it is far more likely. Anyway, that´s what the league´s website is for.
The Muriel Williams is a quiz which serves as an open quiz , and also as the registration night for the Bridgend Quiz League. This year is the 40th Anniversary of the league, and so the Muriel Williams night a week on Monday will be a night of special celebrations. To whit, the services of Mr. Mark Labbett as guest of honour have been engaged for the evening. Which is really why I´m writing. If you live within a reasonable travelling distance of Bridgend and you fancy an evening out you´d be really welcome. The quiz is being held at the Tondu Railway Club and it kicks off at 8pm. There´s no charge for the buffet, and there is absolutely no obligation to register as a team in the league - just come along and play. On the other hand, if you´d like to play in the league, then why not come along on the night - there´s bound to be a team there who will be glad of your services during the season, whatever your level of knowledge, experience and ability.
