Here they are, our final scores from the JGTSpI. If you’re in green, you’ve RSVPd yes, if you’re yellow, you made the cut and have received invites. Teams in peach made the cut but I don’t see an email address for you. Be sure to get ahold of me if you wanna play. If you’re in grey, you still have a chance if some other teams can’t make it. Technically everyone has a shot….any team that wins this week at quizzo earns a wild card berth.

Future Week at Quizzo!

1_ZSjGLDa4M52ip4a3k-rlbw

This week, we’ll be gazing into our crystal ball and predicting the future with 100% accuracy. “How is this possible?” you ask. Simple, as quizmaster, I have powers none of you can possibly comprehend. And also a copy of the Farmer’s Almanac. So expect a lot of questions about robots and virtual reality and super robots that come to destroy the first robots I mentioned. It’s going to awesome.

Human Body Week This Week at Quizzo

article-0-065A4CA3000005DC-97_634x607

This week’s topic: the Human Body. Why? Because I’ll also be raising money for Back on My Feet, a terrific local charity. I’m looking to raise $500 to run in the Broad Street Run this weekend. Anything you want to spare, whether it’s a buck or twenty, is greatly appreciated.

Can’t make it out to the quiz but want to contribute? You can do so online here. Thanks, and hope to see ya this week!

Around the House Week at Quizzo

dollhouse-home-illustration-open-rooms

Trying an all new topic this week, Around the House. Whether it’s carpentry, plumbing, shows on the DIY network, or famous houses, we’ll be covering a lot of ground. Should be a fun quiz. See ya this week!

News and Notes

colors-6

First of all, this week’s topic is “Colors”.

Secondly, we have a slight schedule change on Wednesday: Due to the Flyers playoff game, we’ll be moving the quiz back to 9:30 (or whenever the Flyers game ends). Which means that teams that typically get tables early won’t have them tmrw until after the Flyers game is over. But when the game ends I suspect we’ll have a clearing out of the hockey fans and tables will open up.

Everything else on as usual this week.

 

Spring Invitational Scores!

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 5.07.10 PM

Here they are, our first scores of the 2018 Spring Season! And don’t worry, just because we’re 3 weeks in doesn’t mean your team can’t get back into the mix in a heartbeat. Plenty of chances to win in the coming weeks. I also hope to have a venue lined up in the next week.
