Okay, I've hi-jacked a few other threads, so figured I might as well start a legit one. A couple weeks ago, a few of us caught up with flyerdude88 (of FT-fame) at the Australian Heritage Hotel in the Rocks when he was visiting Australia. We just happened to turn up on Trivia night... and while we weren't necessarily joining in the game, we seemed to help knowledgeably contribute to the team at whose table we were sitting.

So... would any SYD folk or people who may be around on a Wednesday night, be interested in putting together a table one week....?

Seeing dfcatch is organising drinks this week (Thur 15 May) and bass_ke has already arranged something for Thur 22 May, plus with State of Origin coming up and other travel plans, the first weeks I could possibly suggest are Wed 4 June or Wed 11 June.

Any takers?

What a great idea.

AFFers have won the trivia in BNE at various times.

This is awesome!

I'm wondering if I should swap my Thur for a Wed!

My travel plans have changed for this week so won't be able to propose Wed 11 June. Next possibility would be Wed 25 June or Jul 2, though things are quite busy for me with end of financial year, so I'd hate to suggest a date, and then not be able to make it myself.

Any further interest from others to make up a decent team for the Trivia Night? Any other suggested dates from other people?

I'm in town just about even Wednesday night. So I'll leave date setting to others.

Simplification day Trivia?

I do have a meeting with my main antagonists at work the next morning, not sure if it's a good idea or not.

Very tricky this week for me, with go-live on a major project...

However... this has gone on too long, so let's get a quick attendance count. I'd suggest we'd need at least 4 participants to be able to put a team in for the Trivia.

So who is able to confirm attendance for this coming Wednesday 2 July in SYD?

Well, if Medhead is also confirmed that's four so far. I'll call and check if that's enough for a team to start with.

Trivia starts at 7pm, so I'd probably look to get there between 6-6:30pm.

I think we may need a team name. Any suggestions?

How about 'The QuAFFers'? With apologies to any VA AFFers who may be there on the night.

If you need to phone-a-friend on the night, there will be a brains trust (of sorts) at BlueTrain in MEL.

Ok I'll confirm.


Quaffers is as good as anything, I guess.

Sounds good, but I can't do this one - will be in MEL or SIN this week.

Table booking made for 6 people (in case a few stragglers manage to make it) at 6:30pm. Under my name (team name not taken until the night, and PM if you can't work out my name from my handle). See you all there and any more takers, please come along to join in.

Confirmed:

Bumping to the activity stream in case there are other who may want to come along tonight for Trivia...

I'm aiming to arrive around 6:30pm.
