New Season 2011 - 2012

As the anti-cyclonic gloom of summer turns to the blistering heat of autumn, as well as wondering why the entire seasonal cycle has gone to pot, we welcome back Macclesfield Quiz League for Season 31...

At the AGM last Tuesday we played the Plate Final which was a finely contested affair between the Harrington Academicals and the Plough Taverners, the Harrington Academicals emerging victorious 81-79.

This makes the Harrington Academicals the first team to “retain” the Plate since CAP who won in 2003 and 2004. The memories are rolling in now!

The game was expertly “question mastered” as always by Rick Davis and I would like to thank him along with Allan Sherratt from the Church House Bollington who scored etc. Thanks also to the Lamb Inn and Chester Road Tavern for compiling the questions.

In terms of AGM business, subscriptions remain at £40 for this year.

You can pay the subs and collect all the fixtures / rules / documentation etc from the Weaver, Thornton Square between 6.30pm and 8pm on Tuesday the 4th of October 2011. That is this coming Tuesday for those of you not hidebound by dates and times etc!

I will be there along with Marshall Barnard who will issue the usual receipts etc. Please bring you cheques / cash / postal orders / international money transfers / promissory notes from the Greek Government etc along on that night.

The first game will be the following week on Tuesday the 11th of October.

I have almost finalised the fixtures, but Week 1 questions – i.e. the 11th of October will be done in their entirety by the Ox-fford.

Week 2 (18th of October) questions will be set by the Prince of Wales (Specialist) and the Waters Green Rams (General Knowledge).

Thanks to both for volunteering their services at this early stage.
