Latest updates: 22nd March 2020



In view of the government advice issued yesterday I am writing to advise you that your Organizing Committee has reluctantly decided to suspend all GDQL quiz activity for the foreseeable future to protect our members and partners at venues and elsewhere.

The "advice" requires avoidance of unnecessary social gathering and specifies pubs, clubs and other social gatherings. As you are aware, many of our members are in a high risk group being over 70 or having underlying health problems. Groups of 10 or more have also been identified for avoidance.

Some teams and individuals have already taken the decision to withdraw and as a result neither game can go ahead tonight. Inevitably, others will follow. The uncertainty this could create would cause chaos for those teams still wanting to play.

In view of the above,  it has been decided to suspend all fixtures and events. We will also conduct committee business by email or phone only for the time being. I will speak to those without email personally.

I hope you will understand that this decision is intended to ensure we are all still around to play again in September. The position will be monitored in the weeks ahead but for the present all activities are suspended including the Easter quiz, finals night, the AGM and the planned Committee meeting next week. We shall be contacting our venues and would ask you to ensure all team/squad members are aware of this decision.

The situation will be carefully monitored in the coming weeks and you will be notified as soon as we are able to resume games.

Thank you for your understanding and support at this time.

Just a few matches were played last week before the cancellations came in. In Division 1, Rasen took the leaders very close but Dipsos pushed on to what looks more and more to be the Championship. Rowdies swamped Bux who now look a certainty for relegation. Only one game was played in the second flight where Quizlings beat fellow promotion aspirants Time Out.. Minders were conceded the match by Serendipity and Belligerent Fools by Too Witless.

Please note that the fixture lists on this site are for use in conjunction with your fixture list booklets. If you ever find a discrepancy, precedence should be given to the booklet.

While I check, double check and triple check everything before I post it, it is still possible that I may have got my fingers and/or eyes crossed, and I don't want to send anyone to the wrong venue at the wrong time or on the wrong day. Finally, if you do spot a clanger, PLEASE let me know so I can fix it. Thanx! Ed.
