Hi Guy,

Quiz night is coming up fast! The Black Sheep is booked for 7:30. We'll be grabbing something to eat first (no pressure there, if you don't want dinner come along for a drink and a chat anyway!) which will be followed by the quiz, probably around 9ish. The quiz has three rounds: quotes, film stills and questions. We'll randomly assign teams on the night. Having tested the quiz out on my sister who is somewhat of a film nerd, it has been described as "challenging but fun". I'm choosing to see that as a good thing ;) I will circulate a jar before the quiz so that those who come along can donate roughly €5 which will be divided among the winning team. In good news, you are in with a big chance of getting it back with interest  ;)  

A reminder to all to please update your RSVP if you can't make it for any reason. People on the wait list are welcome to come! 

My app phone is out of action so please don't try to contact me through the meetup app on the night. My phone number is[masked] so text or call if you need to get in touch on the day. 

And now for the one and only tip you will get from me (FYI-I am very amenable to monetary bribes), there may possibly, among the myriad of questions, quotes and stills, be one item that relates in some way to the name of our group.... possibly... No, don't thank me, it was the least i could do ;) 

See you all Saturday, looking forward to it!!

Ann :)

      Thanks to you for organizing!! It takes a lot of work and hassle. We all appreciated it.

    Great night guys. lovely seeing you all again and thanks to quiz queen Ann for the Great balance of questions ( and the good chunk of animation related ones which I would have been lost without) See you all again soon :)

    Guys so great to see so many of you there last night! I know the quiz was very hard so thanks for not lynching me on that account ;) It'll be less "challenging" next time...and i hope there will be a next time. so lovely to see you all as always and looking forward to our sunday meetup next week,back to the old routine ;)

    1 · June 15, 2014

    • Jon

      I think the difficulty was spot on. Half the fun were the "oh oh oh, I know this, but can't remember right now" moments, especially if you got them right in the end. By the way, thanks everyone for making me feel welcome on my first meetup :)

      3 · June 15, 2014

    • ann

      Great to have you with us Jon! Hope to see you at more meetups and thanks for the lovely feedback :)

    Truely fantastic night. Thanks a mill Ann & Sueanne for organising it. Had a wonderful time with everyone - shame I didn't get chatting to everyone but we had some fun. Looking forward to the next one :)

    3 · June 15, 2014

    • ann

      I know what you mean Gearoid, it's hard to have a good chat with everyone!

      June 15, 2014

  • Sueanne

    A wonderful, wonderful evening Ann! Such good fun, and we all had a really good chance to get to know each other better! The quiz was a blast - lots of learning done!

    • Miquel

      Couldn't agree more! Lovely night and great work by Ann. Thank you.

      4 · June 15, 2014

    • ann

      Aw thanks guys,i still have post quiz anxiety that you had a good time so you are returning me to a peaceful state of mind :)

      2 · June 15, 2014

  • Luisa

    Great night. Thank Ann for organising. Go team!! Sorry had to leave earlier.

    3 · June 14, 2014

  • Fran

    Are we going to have movie related team names? I suggest movie families! the Von Trapps, The Klumps, The Griswolds , The Corleones... can't think of any more :(

    1 · June 14, 2014

    • Philip D.

      Just off the top of my head, The Skywalkers', The Jones', The Klopek's, The Henderson's, The McFly's, The Gremlins', The Ninja Turtles' (Yea, that one's a stretch) :D

      2 · June 14, 2014

    • Miquel

      I guess any family name from 'Meet the fockers' wouldn't be appropiate. Would it? ;)

      1 · June 14, 2014

  • Philip D.

    I just missed my bus, so I'll be arriving a bit late, say 20:15. See all you fine people then :)

    this is going to rock, I'm very looking forward to it!! Hopefully my team will be great and I'll be able to hide my ignorance :-)

      Count me in too.

      2 · June 14, 2014

      maybe i should make this "everyone gets a medal" day. I don't want to be responsible for lots of bruised egos ;)

      2 · June 14, 2014

  • Miriam O.

    Sorry had to pull out, off on a mini-adventure Sunday and need to save all my money, really sad I won't make this, was looking forward to it!

    June 13, 2014

    • ann

      Not to worry Miriam, hope to see you at an event soon :)

      June 14, 2014

  • Sueanne

    So very looking forward to this tomorrow evening. I'm sure I'll humiliate myself with my lack of knowledge but am also feeling the exponential rising of the internal fun-ness.
    Can't wait to see everyone tomorrow.

    3 · June 13, 2014

    • Sueanne

      Ann, that impression you're building in your head is the correct one! I've been on a quiz team with him. The terms "single-handedly"­, "saving" and "day" come to mind...

      2 · June 13, 2014

    • ann

      I had that feeling, when i was trying to come up with the harder questions my benchmark was "might Ciaran be able to get this?"...sorry for all the attention Ciaran!! at least its positive ;)

    What time will.the quiz start more or less? In case I don't make it for dinner. Look forward to that.

    June 7, 2014

    • ann

      Hi Luisa,I'm guessing it'll be at around 9 but can't be too sure!

      June 7, 2014

  • Sueanne

    Note to self - study!

    3 · May 30, 2014

    • ann

      100 years of cinema, that's a lot of study! though the quiz questions mainly relate to the last 60 or so years of it...and that's the only hint you're getting!! ;)

      1 · May 30, 2014

  • Gearoid O' D.

    Hi Ann, will you let me know if a slot opens up as I don't seem to be able to rsvp :(

    May 25, 2014

    • ann

      Ah Roisin sorry to hear that!! what a pity. Don't worry I'm sure we'll do it again.

      May 30, 2014

    • ann

      P.s. Roisin we are trying to arrange a film screening in a private cinema in town for another night in the next while so maybe stick your name down for that (there's a page for it) and hopefully you can make that one!

      May 30, 2014

  • Claire

    Won't be able to make it after all!

    May 22, 2014

  • Eoin B.

    I have a poker tournament on that night but hopefully i will get knocked out early so i can hang with you guys!

    May 20, 2014

    • ann

      we will be rooting for your defeat! ;)

      May 20, 2014

    So I see 14th of June is the day. Am I right? Or the date is still in the air?

    May 7, 2014

    • Di

      Sure. No problem at all. As I l'll have a thousand of stories to tell. You guys enjoy yourself. I'm sure it will be fantastic :)

      May 7, 2014

    • ann

      thanks Di, can't wait to hear all about your trip! But we will see you before you go right? at the next Sunday meetup?

      May 7, 2014

    Sounds cool, I am not sure about the dates now as I never know when my duty calls :( If I am free on that day then it will be cool or else if Ann can pay me a day's wage then I will be double happy to skip the work & join you guys :P

    1 · May 5, 2014

    • ann

      Haha! You just have to make sure to win the quiz and get the prize money ;-)

      "win"ning is just in my name but not in the real life :D Anyway I'll try ;)

      1 · May 5, 2014

  • Sueanne

    Hi Ann, we could doodle poll this and get a consensus? doodle.com/ Might make things easier? X

    May 5, 2014

    • ann

      Great minds think alike! Miquel just sent me a doodle he made for this so ill put it up when i get to the PC :-) thanks for the suggestion

    The 7th of June sounds good to me. The 25th I won't be in Dublin so it will be a pity to miss this event.

    1 · May 5, 2014

  • Luisa

    I haven't got the chance to join you yes but I'm addicted to cinema too so we share the same passion! 25th would be better for me. Any time in mind yet?

    May 4, 2014

    • ann

      Hi Luisa, would be lovely to have you join us! Probably evening time 7-8ish til late :-)

      1 · May 4, 2014

    • Luisa

      7 sounds good.

      May 5, 2014

  • Miquel

    That's a brilliant idea!!! I'll RVSP Yes but the 17th I've some friends here and won't be able to make it. 25th May would be grand for me. Anyway, this is a democracy until Ann says otherwise ;)

    1 · May 4, 2014

    • Miquel

      And even practising bribery....that snake definitely meant something!!!

      1 · May 4, 2014

    • ann

      Yes! 'snake in the grass', a bitter betrayal by one of my own.. no muffin for you ;-)

      2 · May 4, 2014

  • Luisa

    Hi Ann, excellent idea to get to know the group

    1 · May 4, 2014

  • Di

    If everyone agrees to do it on the 17th will be fantastic and kind of a farewell for my big walk. But I'm sure if you do it any other day it will be a success and we will repeat it again and I'll be there :)

    1 · May 4, 2014

  • Seoirse D.

    Sounds like a great idea! 17th May I'm on holidays but I can make it any other day.
