Hordes of activities on the IQL calendar this July and August – starting with the IQL Champions League Ver 2.4 on July 18, 2009. Vinod Hariharan, the proud winner of the last edition by Mr.V.V.Ramanan, is the host for this version.

Vinod Hariharan, best known by his nickname Malcaluffin needs no introduction in quizzing circles. If there was a frequent flier program on boiled beans, food for thought and similar blogs, Malcs would have made them bankrupt!! We have all seen him score those big sixers and fours on the food for thought blog, but how many have seen him as a quizmaster? Well, here’s your biggest chance!

The IQL Champs League Ver 2.3 is all set to rock you… are you ready?

Date: July 18, 2009, Saturday
Time: 4.00 PM
Venue: Same as the Summer camp – No.8, 2nd Floor, Corporation Complex
RA Puram 3rd Main Road, Chennai 28

For newbies to IQL Champs league:

This is an individual event that will be played as a written round by all participants. We request your co-operation to be on time at the venue. The winner of this edition would host the next edition. At the end of the sixth edition of the series, there would be a grand finale.  We are not currently promising any prizes, but the winner would carry more than just his name and the title of Champion of Champions back with him.
Upgrade to the latest version by being there!!
