Riley Cup 2023

Results of Round One and Draw for Round Two


May I thank you all for getting the results to quickly to me last night, unfortunately one team had technical difficulties and could not get the information to me until today, but I could not update the draw until I came home late this evening.

Round Two games will be played on Monday 17th April 2023. Questions will be sent by post as some of the home teams opted for paper questions and I do not want to mix paper and electronic distribution.

Quarter finals will be played on 24th April 2023, so I would appreciate it if you would send the results in with the same speed as last night.

OQL IndividualChampionships

Online Quiz League are running their inaugural individual championships on Saturday 25th March.  Around 300 players have already signed up to play at venues up and down the country.  The day involves a written individual quiz featuring 200 questions across a whole manner of subjects and then two fun team quizzes in the afternoon.

This is looking like being the biggest event of its kind ever in the UK and one of the venues is the Cross Keys, a pub in Liverpool city centre.  There are currently around 15 spaces left available there and it would be great to see those spaces filled with MQL players.

For more details and to register please go to  https://quizcentral.net/qc/Individual_Championships

Mimir Area Heats

Just a reminder of our Mimir heats this coming Wednesday, below is my original email of 24th January 2023. If you’ve emailed me to say you can help or are taking part, you’re already on the list. If you haven’t yet replied please let me know as soon as possible, it assists with the organisation.

We look forward to seeing as many members as possible.

The Liverpool Quiz League Mimir heats will take place on Wednesday 15th February 2023.  This is a competition open to all members of the Liverpool Quiz League.  The winner will receive the Arthur Evans Trophy and will hold the title for a year. The winner of the Trophy last year was James MacGregor of Palmy Army. 

The Competition and what happens;
Four players play in each heat. Each heat consists of five rounds of three questions to each player.  Usually the winning two go on the next round, ending in a final of four players. The precise make-up of the heats all depends on how many players take part.  The top eight players are invited to go forward to Merseyside heats on 22nd March 2023 at New Brighton CC, Wirral.  Competition format can be found here.

Registration is not essential, however, if you can give us some indication of names by 8pm on Saturday 11th February 2023, it will be a great help planning and organising the heats and set up at the venue.  

Reading, Scoring and Timekeeping
Help with reading, scoring and bonus recording is always needed.  If you don’t want to take part in the competition, but are willing to help, please come along and support the event. Please email me and let me know if you are willing to help.

For Liverpool teams, the questions that have been sent out to you should be kept safe and used for the re-scheduled game, this game should be played on the return fixture 9th January 2023.
