Ganesh and Shivaji provided a very nice quiz last Sunday, covering different areas and asking some good questions. A few questions were a little eyebrow-raising in their arbit-ness, but overall, it was very good. Shivaji couldn't make it to the quiz. So Ganesh conducted the entire quiz, and did so with commendable patience, especially for one who hasn't really done many formal quizzes before.
The final was a tight affair with at least 4 teams in the hunt throughout. Ganesh will hopefully post the questions before leaving for his post-grad studies. The Shivaji-Ganesh pair first came into prominence with their shock 2nd place in Verve 2000, and have been stealth hunters on the circuit ever since. Good luck to Ganesh for the days ahead. Thanks to everyone who participated, despite the heavy rains that hit these parts that weekend.
Our next open quiz will be in September.
As usual, please leave comments if you have any feedback.
Tag cloud of themes:(note: some questions have been tagged with multiple tags; don't have a roll-up to more general categories such as Entertainment. Though Sports seems the highest, the quiz didn't have any bad skews overall, with many of the sports questions being part of multi-tagged questions.)
