This is a really weird one.
Surely it is some form of fundraising — but with a 25 pound “entrance fee” and “top prizes” being awarded, even if they got 20 people to sign up (doubtful) they’re not making much money…
Or maybe the quiz is “How much money do you have available?” “Can you apply for a loan?” “Have you taken out a second mortgage on your house?” “Do you really need a second car?”
But you have to wonder: Why aren’t they doing their extension courses?
And how is this better than bowling or other dilettante activities Hubbard was so derisive of? A Pub Quiz?
Seems terribly off-Source to me.
