The time has finally come. It is time to figure out who are the biggest skeptical know-it-alls in Canada. That’s right, it’s time for the Cross-Canada Skeptical Smackdown Pub Quiz!!
This year I have the honour of creating said quiz and I’m very pleased that several of my friends within CFI Canada are taking part!
But first, what is the Cross-Canada Skeptical Smackdown Pub Quiz? The CCSS is a pub quiz started four years ago by a friend of mine named Kennedy Goodkey, who is a local skeptic in Vancouver. The idea was to create a pub quiz that tested competitors’ knowledge of skepticism and critical thinking. Furthermore, the quiz would be national, meaning various cities would host the same quiz around the same time and the smartest team of 4 would be crowned the biggest know-it-alls.
So how does one participate? First, be in a hosting city. Second, assemble a team of four, you can have your team ready in advance or find one at the event. Third, do the quiz, of course!
So! Which cities are participating?
Vancouver – April 16th – The Railway Club at 7:30pm (event link)
Saskatoon – April 20th – Venue TBA
Halifax – April 21st – Venue TBA (event link can be found here)
Victoria – April 26th – James Bay Inn Pub at 6pm
Winnipeg – April 26th – Norwood Hotel at 7pm (event link here)
Ottawa – April 26th – Venue TBA
I’m hoping that more cities will come on board within the next couple of days.
