Radio contest enthusiasts, puzzle gurus, trivia buffs and Google-fu masters it’s time to set your sights on a new challenge! For 46 years KURE and the student radio stations before it have put on Kaleidoquiz a massive radio contest that at points in its history has been the largest radio competition in the world. KQ is a massive undertaking though. Successful teams have at least 30 members and they dedicate 26 hours to radio contest glory. Not everyone has the time, enough people to put together a full team, or is crazy enough, to take on KQ.
This year KURE is proud to announce QuickyKwiz, a new event designed for people that want to try a part of this decades old crazy radio contest but can only drum up a few friends and don’t want to be Googling facts about the cast of Firefly at 4:30 in the morning. QK, as we’re refering to it for brevity, will be 7 hours long and will run from Noon to 7pm on Saturday November 10th.
At it’s core will be the same crazy and silly questions read over the radio every 6 minutes that you get during KQ but’ll be shorter, more focused, and designed for smaller teams. We expect a successful team to need no more than 5-10 participants. So gather together a group of friends from your residence hall house, members from your club, a group of co-workers, or just a bunch of friends for a weekend event with almost no peer.
In addition to the questions on the radio every 6 minutes QuickyKwiz will include other Kaleidoquiz mainstays such as scavenger hunts, montages (where you have to identify 10-20 clips of media from music, movies, television), and maybe even a special event, who knows.
Hard core Kaleidoquiz veterans, and those who are considering trying KQ for the first time this coming spring need not shy from this event for more casual radio contest participants, we expect to see some familiar faces and soon to be familiar faces at QwickyKwiz. You’re not going to have as much fun in your mega-team forms though, as mentioned above you’ll enjoy the event most in teams of 5-10 so break into smaller groups and treat QK as some intra-team fun and fall training for the big event in the spring!
QuickyKwiz registration will start this coming Friday, October 5th, and will close Wednesday, November 7th. Further details on QK team registration will follow in a registration post this Friday, so stay tuned!
