    Well good afternoon to you all!

    Somehow, our socially distant pub quizzes remain popular, and it seems as though we've been asked for a 3rd, so HERE it is.

    Registering

    Once again, we are asking all teams to register with us by 10 minutes before the quiz starts next Friday. We'll post the registration form in this thread by the middle of next week. As with last time, we request that all teams have no more than 3 members to keep it as fair as possible.

    "Green Room"

    Those of you that joined in last time will have heard, or been lucky enough to participate in, our "Green Room" section of the quiz which will be returning! For those that aren't aware, this is a couple of short interludes between the questions and answers sections where we aim to interview and have a casual chat with some of the teams to see how they're getting on and how they've been coping in lockdown! We're looking for other teams this time to take part, so if you wish to join us for a chat during the quiz, please drop me a PM/text/Facebook message ASAP.

    Breaks

    We're aware that certain members have a stronger bladder than others, especially when 4 pints in! We've factored in 2x 5-minute comfort breaks in the middle of each half of questions, in addition to the 2 main breaks of 15 minutes each.

    When?

    Due to the Eurovision TV events on Saturday the 16th, we have moved the quiz forward to Friday 15th May at 8pm, as we're aware that several members taking part in the quiz are also Eurovision fanatics. As mentioned above, we'll need you to register your team by 7.50pm, so that we can set up our scoring sheets accordingly. From 7.30pm we'll have theme park music playing in the quiz voice channel on Discord. If you are able, we ask that you take the time to drop in for a minute or so to check that you can hear everything properly.

    Where?

    Our not-so-new Discord server! You'll need to be a registered Discord member to take part (it's free and instant), and you'll just need to follow the invitation link on www.towersstreet.com/chat to join in.

    More information will be posted next week once we have the registration forms open, so keep an eye out for that. We are really looking forward to it and hope to see you there!

    That'd be amazing, NGL.

    Seems like the Bendolinos will return for round 3, Pretendolino being MK3 of course.

    If anyone wants to join my team let me know. Currenty it's just me and a rather unhelpful minion.

    Evening all, Sammy here with a quick update on next weeks quiz. We’re really looking forward to seeing you all again on Friday, however we must come clean and say that over the last 24 hours we’ve been mulling over the general format of the quiz.

    So it is with regret to announce that following numerous long discussions surrounding the last quiz and a few errors that were made along the way, we have collectively made the tough decision that Tom will no longer be a part of the quiz broadcast. As a group we really feel there is good mileage in the quiz and unfortunately such errors can not be allowed to happen without risking the accuracy of scores on the night.

    So because of this, I must also request that any further shows of interest in ‘Green Room’ participation should now be directed to myself. Many thanks.

    In the meantime, get you heads down and swat up on your best theme park knowledge. We’ve got new rounds and new topics to test you on, it’s going to be another fun filled silly night and Rowe and I are really looking forward to welcoming you back!

    Quiz Team Out.

    If this time you just mute your mic for the entire thing it would be better.

    Burbs. Mate. Sorry to read this. Sammy... That was well harsh. Who do you think you are? Me??

    :tearsofjoy:

    Honestly I do hope there hasn't been a mass brawl out the back of the Tavern upon reaching this decision, and that Burbs has been given the adequate emotional and wellbeing support to deal with such a loss.

    Tom, thanks for everything you've done so far. Even with Sammy breezing in like an overlord and giving you a dressing down, this definitely couldn't have gotten off the ground without you! Now... time for you to be part of the fun and shenanigans @Burbs :D

    Less of a mass brawl and more of a mass debate! We are a mostly peaceful people on the quiz committee ;)

    It was an incredibly tough decision, it really was and not one that we took lightly. However I disagree that I came in like an overlord. This actually all came about during proof reading of questions/answers, when Tom flagged up a correct answer and changed it to an incorrect one! I don’t know what his game is, weather it was one of sabotage, who knows!

    As you say though, we are still all incredibly thankful to Tom for bringing the quiz alive and we wish him well for the future!
