The University Challenge of the mountaineering world comes to Dundee next month with the 2018 Mountain Mind Quiz.
The Grampian Club will be hosting this year’s quiz, which is open to teams from around Scotland, but mainly clubs in Tayside, Angus and Fife.
The quiz will consist of three rounds of questions on all aspects of mountains and mountaineering. All the questions will be visual, with a 10-minute break or so between rounds, and all teams will be involved to the end. The cherished ‘Mountain Mind Trophy’ will go to the winners, whilst the much loved ‘Boot’ is awarded to the lowest scoring team.
Clubs can enter more than one team if they wish, with teams of up to three people. There will be a charge of £3 for entry fee per person at the door (including spectators). A raffle will also be held on the evening, and all proceeds from the night will be donated to the Kintail Mountain Rescue Team.
The 2018 Mountain Mind Quiz takes place in the Victoria Room of the Queens Hotel in Dundee on Thursday 22nd March, 7pm for 7.30pm.
Any clubs wishing to take part should get in touch with Alex Winter at firstname.lastname@example.org
