Cameron Hall Quiz Night
Every year, UniSFA and UCC run a quiz night.
UniSFA has a wiki on this too: http://wiki.unisfa.asn.au/UniSFA_Quiz_Night
We have another page on this: http://wiki.ucc.asn.au/QuizNightFeedback
- Not near exams
- 2011: 11/08 (The second Thursday night of Semester 2)
- The UWA Guild Tavern
- The Tavern needs to be booked for the night
- Normally the Tavern is not available on Friday nights; hence the Quiz Night is on Thursdays
- The Tavern can fit about 140 people.
- Usually from 8:00pm to 11:30pm
- Organizers meet at 5:00pm
- Start setting up around 7:00pm
- Sequence: Either 2 or 1 round, followed by a break for marking, and inter-round events spread evenly
- Tables consist of 8 people
- In 2010 and 2011, 18 tables were sold = 144 people
- Traditionally, UCC organises the tickets
- Make/Find ticket design.
- Print ticket design on coloured A4 paper (try the stationary drawer (3rd drawer down in the filing cabinet))
- Take the printed pages to Uniprint, and use their guillotine (for free!) Alternately, pay Uniprint some money and they'll print/cut all the tickets.
- In 2011 the tickets were numbered by table and seat; 1A, 1B, ... 18G, 18H
- Tickets are sold either in groups of 8 (1 table), or individually. The price is typically $10 per individual ticket, or $70 per table.
- Sometimes (not in 2010 or 2011) tickets are sold at the door, for $12 - $15. Normally all tickets sell out before the night though.
- Distribute the tickets evenly between the clubs involved. (In 2011, Unigames was also involved)
- Use dispense to sell tickets. Never split a bundle of 8 tickets unless there are no more individual tickets.
- Committee members should keep the tickets somewhere safe, and give them to buyers after checking with the cokelog.
- Maximum of 10 rounds
- Aim for sensible averages; 10 questions, 12 marks, average of slightly more than 6
- Rounds include: Computer Knowledge, Social Science, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Music, Maths and Science, Arts, History, General Knowledge, Sport, Gaming, etc
- Don't make a Cameron Hall trivia round, since people outside of Cameron Hall often attend
- Someone sensible should try to look at all the questions, to make sure there aren't any obscure and impossible ones, which often happens when you have a bunch of enthusiastic nerds writing questions about nerdy stuff.
- Questions need to be put into a power point
- Will fill this in later
- Door Prize
- Overall prize (don't award a prize per round)
- Any prizes that people want to donate?
- The purpose of the event is to make money, so don't spend it all on prizes.
- Handled by UniSFA in 2011
- Unicredit offered to provide pens, question/answer pads, and a picnic set with wine
- Need 6 - 8 people in total (people can do more than 1 job)
- As many people to write questions as want to (as long as there aren't more than 10 rounds)
- 2 to MC (1 from each club)
- Markers (people who write questions should volunteer to mark)
- Someone to set up the power point of all the questions, manage sound
- 2 people to find sponsorship/prizes
- Send ucc-announce emails when tickets are available, 2 weeks before the event and again 1 week before the event
- No real need for posters, since between UCC and UniSFA all tickets usually sell out
- People not affiliated with either club do often attend though
- Tell the guild about the event
- Never. Ever. Ever. Let Jeremy Cole write questions, or do the music round for the quiz night again.
- Likewise for Unigames.
