A pretty basic tip, this one, but one that’s easily overlooked. In your pub or club you’re going to have some people who haven’t come for the quiz. I know, shocking! After all the advertising there are people who didn’t know it was on.
However, these people are potential entrants, and if they enjoy this quiz they might well be back for more. You’ve just got to sign them up this time, and an easy way out for them is the lack of a writing implement – “We’d love to do it, but we don’t have a pen”.
If they don’t have a pen, make sure you have plenty. And that’s one more team tonight, who could be regulars in the future.
