See you in September

 

 

(added 20 May)

 

 

A very well produced, well presented and enjoyable quiz by Andrea and Ali (of the Smart Italics) brought the

 

 

2016–17 season to an official close this week.  The winners were renowned handicap bandits HMRUFC.  It’s a pity

 

 

that fewer than half the teams in the league attended and those that did were largely ‘the usual suspects’.  It would

 

 

be interesting and/or enlightening to hear reasons from the absent teams for their continued non-attendance.

 

 

One of the main aims of the night is to raise money for charities, so it would be good to get a few more bums on

 

 

seats.

 

 

 

 

 

The 2017–2018 season will begin in mid-September with the AGM and Registration meeting, followed by the first

 

 

games in early October.  The traditional pre-season friendly against a team from the Withington Quiz League will

 

 

take place in mid/late September.  As a ‘reward’ for their league performance this season the following teams are

 

 

invited (i.e. it’s not compulsory) to provide two members of the Stockport squad that will attempt to recover the

 

 

WIST trophy: Alexandra, Smart Italics, Tiviot, Printers, Star and HMCC.  We’ll also need a volunteer to set our half

 

 

of the questions; please form an orderly queue.

 

 

 

 

 

Please also start thinking about items for the AGM agenda.  One concern is the rather high number of byes in the

 

 

B Division, as a result of there being different numbers of teams in the two league divisions.  Assuming we get no

 

 

new teams for 2017–18 we’ll need to re-think the format of one or both divisions.  Early suggestions include:

 

 

  • playing opponents three times (rather than two) and scrapping the qualifying phase of the knockout

 

 

  • moving to just one league division

 

 

Please submit your thoughts/suggestions by email.  It would also help in planning for next season if teams were to

 

 

confirm their participation as soon as possible, rather than leaving it until September.

 

 

 

 

 

There may be occasional updates to this website between now and August and if there’s any significant news

 

 

teams will also be notified by email.  Enjoy the summer.

(added 3 May)

 

 

As the consensus seems to be that the current one is a bit ‘meh’ we are looking for a new name for the

 

 

A-Trophy for next season.  Please send suggestions to the usual email address and ‘thank you’ to those that have

 

 

already done so.
