Sett Valley Quiz League
Rules and Procedures
The following are not rules, just help in setting questions and what to do.
When it is your turn to set the questions please think of the following points and also follow the procedure. It only takes one team to cock it up and there will be no quiz that night.
Try to set questions that have not been asked recently. If your turn to set the questions follows a recent bye, this is unlikely this season, then you could go to watch a match that is being played when it is your bye, to listen to the questions. I believe most landlords/ladies will let you in free.
Use questions that have short, concise answers, long descriptions in answers only seems to cause problems. Underlining important words can be useful but if the answer is short then it will not be required.
Remember this is a Pub quiz, just a varied mixture of medium difficult questions, some to tax the best but some not to tax the worst (me).
Set a few spare questions in case a question is missing etc.(Rule 9). If you are setting questions for a Knockout/Plate match then please set a tie break question (nearest number to the answer etc.) we do need a result on the night.
Seal the first half and second half questions in separate envelopes, and put into another envelope. Download the score sheet and result sheet from the website. Put one score sheet into the envelope.
If it is a league match, not a Knockout, put one result sheet for every team playing that night in the envelope and seal it.
Write on the front of each envelope a fixture from that night's list. This prevents two sets of questions going to the same match if the away team have made a mistake in who should be picking up the questions.
Please remember it is your job to distribute the questions. i.e. be in Chalkers to give the questions to the away teams.
