Dear Liverpool Quiz League Players,
As you are aware MQL has been monitoring Government guidelines in the hope that we would be able to start conventional face to face quizzing in January 2021, they agreed to make a decision at the November 2020 meeting.
Council decided that all League quizzing for the 2020 2021 season should be cancelled and it was agreed that the following statement would be sent to all current Members of the Leagues;
It is with regret that MQL announce the cancellation of the 2020-21 Leagues season. This was a unanimous decision made at Sunday’s meeting of the MQL Council. It means that there will be no face to face quizzing in the Liverpool, Ormskirk, Southport & Formby, Warrington or Wirral Leagues. Any question sets and membership fees that may have been submitted will be carried over to the 2021-22 season, which we hope will begin as normal in September.
As you are aware, three online league competitions are currently being operated by Southport & Formby, Ormskirk and by MQL. If any teams or individuals would like to get involved with these, please contact your league Secretary.
The President’s Trophy competition is being played online and it is hoped that the Merseyside Challenge Cup and possibly the Mimir Individual competitions may run in some form of online version in the Spring.
The President’s Shield, Feeny Cup and Rendon Cup competitions will not take place.
The decision to cancel was made very reluctantly after months of uncertainty. However we had reached the stage that even when circumstances may have allowed venues to open and host, there would be insufficient time to complete a league programme. We hope that all players and their families stay safe and look forward to meeting up again in September.
