We are heading back to Huddersfield for the sixth year running this autumn, to Huddersfield Town’s training complex at Canalside (HD2 1YJ). This is just up the Leeds Road from the town centre, railway station and stadium, and is accessible from the M62 with free parking.
Canalside is a fully modern, up-to-date facility and ready for the hustle and bustle of a CO-event (take a look at http://www.canalsidesports.com).
What did the Huddersfield Examiner make of last year’s event? Why not take a look at their article and video diary here!
Presented by James Robinson and Callum Todd, using the “Bristol” classroom format and playing along with big screen virtual studio graphics.
Date: Saturday 8th October
Venue: PPG Canalside, Huddersfield, HD2 1YJ
Admission: £15, including hot buffet lunch
Doors open: 9am for a 10am start
Presented by: James Robinson, quiz-mad star of Eggheads, Pointless, Mastermind and many more, and Callum Todd, Countdown series winner and owner of gravity-defiant hair.
Finishes by: 6pm
– Guaranteeing a minimum of 7 games for every contestant.
– Heats: Four 10-round games (LLNLLNLLNC) using 1/0 flat scoring, then
– Finals: 9-round quarter-final, 9-round semi-final, 14-round grand final, using regular scoring.
– The grand final in Group A then plays out as the showpiece at the end of the day.
The heats will use 1/0 scoring, so there’s a possible “ten out of ten” to aim for in each of these matches. For winning a match you’ll score two points, or one point apiece for a draw (there are no tie-breakers in the heats).
Then, based on number of wins and points scored, you’ll go forward into groups of eight for the finals. Everybody plays to the end, and even if you don’t qualify for Group A, you still have a title to try and win!
This event will take place on Saturday 7 October — doors open at 9am for a prompt 10am start, finishing at around 6pm. Admission is £15 and includes a hot buffet lunch. The cash bar will be available too.
Payments can be accepted by PayPal (https://www.paypal.me/JRTerrier7/15) or by cheque (address available on request).

We look forward to you joining us up in West Yorkshire!
