Stockport Quiz League

Coronavirus

NEW (updated 16 March)

Due to the coronavirus pandemic all Stockport Quiz League fixtures have been suspended with immediate effect and until 16 April 2020 at

the earliest, although it would appear likely this hiatus could last for months rather than weeks.? The committee has taken this sad decision in

an attempt to reduce the threat to the many league members who are in the high risk category by virtue of their age and/or general health and

to comply with the latest government guidance to avoid pubs.? When the whole country is being encouraged to apply the principles of social

distancing it might be seen as irresponsible to ignore these to play something as trivial and inconsequential as a pub quiz.

 

Please check this website regularly for further news and please take good care of yourselves (and others) until we meet again.

Scores from league matches played on Thursday 12 March are here.? The questions used on Thursday 20 February are here.

 

Dave Rainford

(added 9 March)

Over the weekend we learned the dreadful news that Dave Rainford passed away on Saturday.? Most people will know Dave from his regular

TV appearances as one of BBC's Eggheads, or going way back in time as ?Tremendous Knowledge? Dave from his stints on local radio with

James Stannage.? Some of us were lucky enough to know him better as a quiz opponent, having played against (and occasionally with) him in

our competitions with Withington League, as well as everyday pub quizzes throughout the local area over the last 30 years.? Dave was not

only a superb quiz player, but was also a lovely, warm-hearted person with an engaging, larger-than-life personality that ensured that any quiz

in which he took part would never be a dull affair. ?Numerous tributes to and memories of Dave from those who knew him can be seen on the

Withington League website.? Dave will greatly missed by his many friends in the Stockport League.

 

Change of Venue

(updated 24 January)

For operational reasons the Flying Coach team has moved to a new venue (but will keep the same team name). ?They have gone just a few

hundred yards south east and now play home matches at The Rising Sun.? Their well-known new home is located almost underneath the

railway bridge (more correctly, the Norbury viaduct) at the junction of the A6 and the A523 (Macclesfield Road) in Hazel Grove.

 

Question Setting

?(added 27 September)

Our question-setting guidelines have been revised to include guidance on question-setting for the newly-introduced inter-divisional matches.

They also include Microsoft Word templates for question papers for both league and knockout matches.? It would be really helpful and very

much appreciated if teams were to use these templates when setting questions, as this should reduce the (considerable) amount of time that

our Questions Tsars spend transcribing and re-formatting questions to make them ready for publication on the website.
