Though I thought that Quizzo Bowl I was, overall, a success, there were a number of things that could be improved for the next event.
a) Downtime. Yes, there was too much downtime. That was because I didn’t have enough graders. There will be several more graders. There will also be a few less questions (we’ll be going 12 per round instead of 15), and my answer sheets will be better organized.
b) Ended too late for a Sunday night. I have corrected that by lessening the downtime and moving the starting time up a half an hour.
c) The food situation. Last time, we went with more of a snack menu. This time, a full dinner menu will be offered.
d) Most importantly, THERE WILL BE NO BELLYDANCING. Yes, you may breathe a sigh of relief. The breakdancers will not come into the crowd and try to get you to dance with them on the tables.
The ticket situation is a little convoluted when you go to buy tickets online. Do not pay attention to the seating chart. It is useless. After you click on “Buy Tickets”, just click on “Quick Pick Tickets” on the next page. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. So far, we’ve sold about 50 tickets. Also, I am extending the deadline to get in your bonus points. You must submit your points to me by next Thursday, August 25th.
