1. Language: The quiz questions will be in English, and if needed, with explanations in Hindi or Gujarati.
2. Quiz Participation: Prior registration only.
3. Cheating: Anyone suspected by an official of cheating will be disqualified. You must not use any mobile device during a quiz competition.
4. Challenges: If at any time you think your answer should be accepted, then you must complete a challenge slip. These will be available at the front of the room. This MUST be done BEFORE the start of the next round. Every effort will be made to check alternative answers offered by a contestant challenging an answer through the correct channel, but ultimately the quiz master’s decision is final.
5. Late Arrival: If a player arrives after a competition has begun, they will not be allowed into the quiz room as it could disrupt other players. Organizers will find a suitable time for a late player to join the quiz that will not cause problems for other competitors. Please don’t be late.
6. Disruptive Behavior: Anyone deemed by an official to be purposely disrupting an event or causing upset/annoyance/distress to another player/organizer will be removed from the hall.
7. Team Swapping: It is not permitted to replace a team member after the first round of a quiz has started. If a team member is late, and they haven’t been replaced, the team will participate with a player short until the late comer is permitted entry to the quiz room. In very exceptional circumstances, such as sudden illness or accident, the quiz master might allow a player to be swapped, but this must be done with permission from quiz master and the opposing team where appropriate.
8. Participant Exclusion: The Organizers reserves the right to refuse entry to troublesome individuals, for example someone deemed to have been disruptive in the past or be bringing quiz into disrepute.
9. Scoring Team’s decision will be final. In case of a judgement tie or a score tie, the quiz master will break the tie.
10. Photography: We will be taking photos and videos of the event and will be publishing on our website and social media. If you have any reservation against this, please let us know in writing so we can instruct our media team accordingly. We encourage you to post your photos and videos on the social media as well, and help us in our mission to keep the lamp of our heritage shining bright.
