    It was mentioned last meeting that we're going to have a trivia night (not just trivia pursuit night) for Sw day on the 4th of May.

    Here are some thing we need to consider:

    First and foremost how the night will be run, such as how many rounds and how points are done.

    I've helped run a trivia night before and it's normally done in rounds and teams. Questions are read out for the round (lets say 10) and the teams work on the answer goether. In the end of the round the answer is read out and the number of points is given to the adjudicators. Alternately the adjudicators can have a master sheet of all the answers but this makes more work for them.
    Between rounds a game is played for bonus points while the scores are updated. When the game is over the next round begins.

    So how are we going do this? Are we going to have categories? Are we going to have visual and aural questions?

    And what about prizes? How are we going to make it so each team member benefits? How many a team?

    And most importantly, who's going to MC the night and who will do the thankless job of adjudicating?

    There is also the thing about promotions.

    Lock per request

    I think there should be a mix of oral and visual questions. There should be about three people per team.

    I'll be happy to help out on the night - either be MC of be on the judging pannel.

    As far as prizes are concerned. I think we should discuss that with the other members in the meeting on the 29th.

    Did you require assistance with the questions ?

    I'm over qualified for that part.

    Seafarers is available, as long as we don't make too much noise and don't expect to be able to use the boys' toilets, as they have been vandalised. but other than that, it's all good! sorry about taking so long to get back to you, it took a while for the reply to get to me.

    Ok ok - so I'm late,

    but the projector is avaliable for $20 a day if you want it. I THINK that means $20 overnight. I can pick it up on Thurs and return it on Friday, so that's ok.

    Let me know if you still want it though.

    Sorry I'm lazy and didnt get an answer sooner.

    I hope my team will still make it - they seem to be deserting me in droves...

    Everyone is and we've had no e-mails. For this reason We decided to cancel the trivia night.

    Thanbks to everyone who has helped and sorry for the short notice. The boards and the e-mail address have been playing up again.

    Good luck in exams everyone and MTBWYA.

    BTW, happy SW day.

    It's off!!!??!!!

    And I had just managed to get a team together... :_|

    Now I'll have to let them all know.

    Thanks for trying though guys - it would have been fun.

    I was getting suspicious that it might go the way of the dodo when no one was posting on the boards.

    I know it would have been fun, but these things can't be helped.

    You know what they say, Sith happens.
