BRaG Quiz night - Saturday 13th March

Thursday, March 4, 2021 

We hope you will join us for some online entertainment this Saturday 13th March, 7.00pm - 10.00pm. Not only do we have two more rounds of Quiz Master Ferg's fiendish questions, but we also have some special guests lined up to chat to during the break. We have also teamed up with Monty's restaurant in Kingston for food and Taylor's Fine Wine in Ham.

Hopefully, this will be the last of our online events before we can organise some safe, outdoor happenings. As always, it's all in aid of our our 2021 charities. You can make a donation directly into the BRaG account:

Doors will open at 7pm for round 1 of the quiz hosted by Quiz Master Ferg. We'll take a break around 8pm to chat to our guests while we have dinner (see details about Monty's Nepalese and Binder's samosas below) and wine from Taylor's Fine Wine. Round 2 of the quiz will start around 8.45pm and we aim to finish by 10.00pm.

Special guests!

We are very lucky to have some very interesting neighbours who have agreed to have a short chat during the break between quiz rounds. Keep tuned to hear more about these local legends:

Dave Fulton is an American comedian who has made Kingston his home.

Rob Andrew, ex-England Rugby Union fly half with 70 caps for his country.

Sarah Olney, Richmond Park Lib Dem MP (this will be a completely non-political chat - it is Saturday evening after all)

We'll also have videos featuring Patsy with news of Barnfield Riding School and Andrew Taylor of Taylors Fine Wine.

If you have a question (of a non-political and non-controversial nature) you would like us to ask any of our guests, please send it to info@bragstreet.org. We only have a short time to speak to our guests but we'll try to get through as many questions as possible.

Lockdown Quiz– How to play

For those of you who need some advice on how to get started then here is our guide to get you going. Its easier than you think so please don’t be put off. Any issues then please ask via info@bragstreet.org or via your WhatsApp group. The event is free, the apps are free so please consider supporting our charities .

You will ideally need two devices to play. The first device is to view the questions and quizmaster, ideally this would be a desktop, laptop or tablet, this will use a video conferencing product called Zoom and we will discuss how to set this up next. The second device is used to enter the answers on via a website called kahoot. This second device can be anything but works well on a smartphone.

Device 1 – Zoom.

On your first device you will need to visit https://zoom.us/ - From here you can click on ‘Join a meeting’ at the top of the screen. This will enable you to join the meeting. If you prefer you can download Zoom on to your device and join the meeting via the program or app, Zoom is also available on the app store and google play. If you download then you will need to register via your email address etc. For the purposes of our quiz it is fine to use Zoom via the website or the app.

Device 2 – Kahoot.

Kahoot

If you have kids under the age of 18 its highly likely they will be Kahoot experts so now would be a good time to enlist their help!!

So, on your second device you need to visit kahoot.it (not Kahoot.com) via your browser or get the Kahoot! app via the app store or google play. When we start the game you will be given a PIN code and then you will enter the game via your second device, for the time being though you can leave kahoot until we issue the PIN. If you wish to practice in advance then please visit kahoot.com (not kahoot.it - notice the different address) there are lots of practice quizzes that you can play to familiarise yourself with the system.

Before we start

When the doors open visit the Zoom page or app and then join the meeting using the ID and password provided. When asked about audio then use computer audio. Beware – if you turn your video on then we can see you just like you can see us…. There is a chat function, this is a great way to communicate with the quizmaster and the others on the quiz, any issues then please post via chat and we should be able to resolve your problems.

Once you are happy with your Zoom set up, then grab your second device and make sure it is charged. Visit Kahoot.it or use the app, and enter the pin provided by the quizmaster on Zoom alonf with a nickname. The game won’t start until the quizmaster is ready and enough people have joined.

BRaG is running this quiz in lieu of any physical events so far this year. We would appreciate your support so you will see some information on our fundraising efforts for this year and we would appreciate donations to enable our charities to keep working though this difficult time.

We'll also have videos featuring Patsy with news of Barnfield Riding School and Andrew Taylor of Taylors Fine Wine
