Anyone on for this Tuesday?

Postby Asdracles » Sun, 16 Aug 2009 11:49 pm

Is anyone on for any quiz this coming Tuesday? Dog & Bone or anywhere else?

Giselle and I would be interested in joining this week if something is on!

Calling David, are you back in town? What about Kim? Is this group still joining any quiz?

Thanks!

Hey As :)

Kim and David are both out of town at the moment, as we have been. Hope to catch up and get the old Motley's back together once we're all back :)

Take care, Mr. P

Sorry, Asdracles...out of town at da mo. Not back till end of August.

Cheers for passing the news on P. & for the reminder of D & B being bi-weekly, Saint.

We'll try to get things back together again once all are back on the Island :-)

Enjoy in the meantime, and regards to Giselle too.

Magoo :)

Hi, Mr Magoo and I are both in town this evening, so I have booked at table at Boomerang under Motley Crew. Starts at 7:30 - so see you there and any others that are interested.
I called Dog 'n Bone to find out if there was a quiz tonight, but there was no answer.
Cheers
Kim

The Dog n Bone doesn't open it's doors until about 4pm so probably the reason no reply. Anyway the quiz is tonight

Sorry to have missed it...

Postby Dave Magoo » Thu, 10 Sep 2009 9:19 am

Sorry to have missed the quiz on Tuesday, guys. I arrived back in Sing. quite late on Tuesday and didn't see that a table had been booked et al.

Maybe we can try again next Tuesday?

Will check in on everyone in the coming few days to see what's occurring.

Cheers for now!

Tuesday was the worst ever in Boomarang. Definately, it was my last one there.

9/10 question in sports were australian questions. Only 3 of them I can count them as "general knowledge", but australian weightlifters, leader of the australian 2nd division, ... are out of the scope of any non-australian I guess.

Same with history. Australian Prime Minister that did this, Australian state where this happened, ....

I understand that is an Australian bar and most of the customers are from Oz, but I feel a waste of time to go there.

We finished 2nd as we got a couple of guys helping with those questions. No round prizes, no true/false, ....

Don't know about you, but I gave already a few chances, and this has been repeating again and again.

Thanks for the no-holds-barred update, Asdracles...

Postby Dave Magoo » Tue, 15 Sep 2009 1:17 pm

With Asdracles' feedback in mind, am disinclined to head to the Boomerang this evening, and would rather give the bi-weekly Dog & Bone a go next Tuesday instead (should just about still be around then, as back to Bangers around 23rd/24th minimum)...

What say you, all?

Just a thought!!

Hope all is well with all the Quizzers, and catch up again soon.

I spoke to the quiz leader at Boomerang after the last quiz and asked if she would consider less Australian questions and she said that she would. Dave, if you're up to it, we can give it a try this week and then decide (or leave early if nothing has changed).

Another option is Pincho's. I spoke to TJ and he said that the quiz there is now happening (he is not the quiz master).

My vote is one more night at Boomerang and then we decide. Agree, Disagree, will we see you there?

We had same chat lot of times already, so I won't give it any more try.

With the previous quizmaster there it worked, but with this girl.... I remember last time I went with Alan, I spoke with her and she said that for sure will change, that she was just starting, and didn't realize this would be a problem.

Last week yes, it change, from 25% to 60%.....

So I will not give any more try to Boomarang

I do apologize for missing responses to my posting, guys...

Postby Dave Magoo » Wed, 16 Sep 2009 1:08 pm

It didn't occur to me to check back in after my original posting, Kim and Alberto...must be getting rusty at this forum lark :oops:

However, am still keen to check out the Dog & Bone next week if that still appeals to everyone. Will see if anyone else is interested before confirming the details by Monday.

Have a good week in the interim, one and all :)
