James Chesters -- Skills Matter's Community Marketing Manager -- is taking on a challenge in the Arctic Circle to raise £6,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.  This is the first official fundraising pub quiz; with extra added Open Source and Agile!

One night and four rounds of some of the most fiendishly quizzical quiz questions devised by Andy Hicks (leader of the London Scala User Group), this is the only dedicated Open Source and Agile* pub quiz in London -- and it's all for a good cause.

Get involved! 

Form a quiz team or come along and join one on the night!  Entry is £5 a person, with teams up to a maximum of 5 people -- places are limited, so keep your RSVP up to date!  All proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support.

We also need sponsors of prizes -- leave a message with your RSVP if you are interested in providing a prize for the raffle or the quiz.  Sponsors will get a listing on the Skills Matter page, along with a mention on the night!

James also needs your help to reach £6,000 -- if you can help, you can find out more and directly sponsor his Great Arctic fundraising Challenge for Macmillan Cancer Support here.

*Some quiz questions may also contain small quantities of general knowledge.
