January 2007 Pub-Quiz Meeting

The January 20007 meeting is going to depart from the normal presentation format and we're going to have a pub quiz instead. We'll do the usual 'what's been going on in the London Ruby community round-up' before quizzing. So if anyone managed to pull themselves away from crying into their turkey over 'The Snowman' and get some exciting new projects off the ground then this'll be the time to let us know!

Date and time will be as usual; 2nd Monday of the month (8th of January, 2007), with kick-off at around 6:30pm for the London Ruby community round-up, with the quiz starting at about 7:00. The location is The Old Crown on New Oxford Street.

We'll be in the 2nd floor function room at The Old Crown. There will be a bar menu available all night, providing tapas style snacks.

The quiz format will be as follows:

  • Round 1: London
  • Round 2: Ruby (community and history)
  • Round 3: Users (famous folk)
  • Round 4: Group (music)
  • Round 5: a picture round

Each round will have 10 questions, but there'll be bonus points available as and when I see fit.

Teams should be of 4 or less (we may change this on the night depending on numbers), and there'll be a prize for best team name.

The prizes are a selection of Ruby books kindly donated by O'Reilly and Addison-Wesley, plus other bits and bobs donated by LRUG members.

I've created an upcoming event, so you can register interest and keep an eye on the details, in case they change. Alternatively join our mailing list where we'll no doubt be discussing it.
