All ye veterans and yuppies,

We are looking for Quizmasters for our next Masters of the Universe meeting scheduled to happen in the 2nd/ 3rd week of Sept 2011.

For the uninitated, MOTU is our lone-wolf quiz format that happens each month. The quiz would be in a written prelims and “vocal” finals format. Ideally, a quiz has around 20-25 qns in the prelims and 30-35 qns in the finals including themes/ written rounds etc. In short, its a full blooded quiz but since its lone wolf, the number of questions are toned down.

If anyone is interested, please drop in a comment here.

Thanks,

Team IQL

Is this your “home page” on laptops, PC’s, mobile phone, ipads and all possible electronic devices with an internet connection?

Then, consider yourself a wiki-freak and be invited to our IQL meeting on 3rd Sept 2011 at the Zha Cafe, Adyar, Chennai at 4PM.

We appreciate your eager beaver enthu but do bring that also when you come join us for the meeting!!

Thanks – Team IQL

PS: this invite is also for those wanna be wiki-freaks and everyone else, so don’t feel left out.
