I am pleased to say that the second Diamond Jubilee Pairs competition will be held on Wednesday 14th September starting at 8 pm at Prescot Cables FC club, courtesy of the Ormskirk QL.
The format of the competition remains the same. All entrants will be placed into either a higher or lower pool and on the night a draw will be made to create pairs made from a player from each pool. The First Round is a 40-question written quiz that will find the top 6 pairs. In the Semi-finals these six pairs will be asked questions in turn in a 15 to 1 type format. A pair has three lives and loses a life each time they answer incorrectly or fail to answer. There are 10 seconds to answer and there are no bonuses. The questioning continues until only three teams remain. Those three teams then contest the Final played in the same way until a winning pair is found.
If you would like to take part, then please send an email entitled Merseyside Pairs to either myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to your League Secretary. Entries will be confirmed on the Sunday before the competition. The competition is open to MQL players and there is no charge for entering.
For those who are still cautious about Covid we would expect all participants to be responsible and considerate. The venue is spacious and all measures possible will be taken to keep players safe. In line with current advice there will be no refreshments.
I hope that you will be able to join us and look forward to hearing from you.
