Fusionopolis Wednesday nights

Postby bugs01 » Fri, 18 Sep 2009 3:50 pm

Hey there, I have started going to a weds night quiz at 7pm in the Harry's bar at Fusionopolis. It is free to enter and the prize is 24 bottle of harry's beer. It is not dissimilar to the old TJ quizzes in that it is a series of random questions and no categories, 4 rounds of 10. Bring down a team if you fancy it.

Giselle and me are keen to try the Dog & Bone next Tuesday.

So, with Dave, we are 3. Anyone else?

Harry's At Fusionopolis would suit me more...

Sorry Asdracles & Giselle, but have got a rare case of serious workload at the moment and, having already done 3 'through-the-nighters' and in the middle of one now, I can safely predict that I'll be doing the same tomorrow night, as the final deadline is Wednesday morning... :-({|=

Would you and everyone be available for the quiz mentioned by Bugs instead at Harry's Bar, Fusionopolis on Weds night? By then, my brain will certainly need a download :???:

Thanks for the tip, Bugs. Will the quiz be running this Weds?

For Saint et al, will deffo get to the Dog & Bone at some point, but fate is currently battling against it.

Sorry, all, and let me know what you think. If you prefer the Dog instead, then hope that you fly the Motley flag high as always :-D

Will check in tomorrow to update.

Thanks for the update, Bugs.

So, how about it guys. Harry's Bar, Fusionopolis, 7pm tomorrow (Weds) night?

Here's the link on how to get there if you're interested:

Not too far from our old Pinchos hunting ground by the looks of it.

I'll check in tomorrow to see the responses.

Cheers

Ok then. Looks like we would be alone at Dog&Bone, so will give it a try tomorrow.

See you!

Hi guys.

I'm new to Singapore - from Sydney, Australia - and am keen on perhaps tagging along to one of these trivia nights you are involved in. Realise you may already have a firmed up team, but if you need a new member etc, please PM me.

I am not great at these things but do enjoy them. Guess its the competitive streak in me. Ha. Cheers.

Details below, we usually get a min of 4 teams, but many were out of the country last week, should be full strength again today though.

From the quizmaster;
I’m hosting another trivia quiz at Harry’s bar downstairs tonight (Wed) starting at 7PM.

For the uninitiated:

· Groups of 2 to 6 players compete as a team, and there’s no entry fee for teams.

· Teams are often ad-hoc and formed on the spot, so not a big deal if you don’t have a team together beforehand

· There’s four rounds of 10 trivia questions in all types of subjects, ranging from pop culture, to current events, to academic subjects, to sport, to movie, to music, to anything.

· At the end of each round every team’s answer sheet is scored.

· The team with the most points at the end wins the Grand Prize: a carton (24 bottles) of Harry’s Premium Lager.

· It’s a relaxed, fun event – even if you’re not normally a trivia expert. It’s a team game J

· We’re usually done by 9 or 10 PM


Also:


· Harry’s extends their Happy Hour all night throughout the quiz. ($6 well drinks, house wines, and ½ pints)

· Tonight only, they’re also giving a complementary welcome drink to everyone playing (forgot what it’s called).

It was a good, well balanced, if a little bit short quiz evening (although I only made it there near the end of round 2, so prob. why it felt so short!!).

Cheers, Alberto & Giselle for waking me from my post-work lethargy. A good evening indeed :lol:

For the rest of the Motleys, sorry not to have given you the heads up other than through the previous posting. It didn't look like there was any interest, so decided not to go until getting the call from Alberto at 7pm asking "Where are you?". Oops! :oops: I'd misread his previous posting to be that him & Giselle were heading to the Dog & Bone quiz the previous evening. That's what 4 days of severe sleep deprevation does to you :o

Shez & Kjellbelly...you are more than welcome to join the Motley Crew as it's a very informal, transient kind of deal. Just pitch up when you feel like it, basically. Keep following this thread and you'll get to know where the quizzes are, and if anyone will be attending.

I'm likely to be out of the the country next week, but maybe others will take up the baton in my absence.

Cheers all, and hope to catch up with you soon :-D

Weds is the new Tues :-)

Postby Dave Magoo » Mon, 28 Sep 2009 10:18 am

Looks like I'll still be on the island, come this Wednesday, so will definitely be attending the Harry's Bar, Fusionopolis Pub Quiz from 7pm, if anyone else is interested.

For the uninitiated, here's a link for how to get there...it's slightly off the beaten track, about a 10 min walk from Buena Vista MRT.... :shock:

http://www.fusionopolis.a-star.edu.sg/c ... ctionID=16

The quiz is a well-balanced 4 round, 40 uncategorized questions quiz that will certainly keep the old grey matter ticking over for it's duration, aided and abetted by a reasonable happy hour \:D/

Hope to see y'all there :cool:
