Just wish I was going to be there with the guys. The quiz is a great highlight of the event.  I really hope everyone has a great time, and some great Astronomy is forthcoming too. If not, there is still great fun to be enjoyed.   Take great care there and back everyone. :icon_salut:.                                        Ron.

If there's a round about Star Trek, I might actually be able to answer a question...(nudge nudge wink wink Mr Morris!😉).

I’m terrible at quizes, so I’ll just prop the bar up and watch all those great minds ticking over searching for the right answer! ;)

Not so much 'great minds ticking over searching' as 'drunk befuddled minds groping hopelessly in the dark'  ;)

It's seriously in need of dumbing down to allow for the more befuddled of us 😂

Can I make a serious suggestion?

@michaelmorris could you organise teams based on 1 moderator as a team captain, with everyone's name pulled from a hat allocated to a moderator?

This would mean a bit more interaction between everyone and not having a team of 6+ vs a team of 3 (which we had a couple of years ago!).

Couples etc could still sit together on a team, just put both names on the same bit of paper.

Numbers should be fairly predictable?

I think that the most sensible suggestion in this situation would be for you to cheat shamelessly. 🤪

I think there should be an astronomical-karaoke round.

I nominate The Ians to perform "I lost my heart to a Starship Trooper" in spangly body suits....(I'd pay good money to see that!).
