This year's Mexican Wave tournament commemorates Susanna Sanchez a much-loved Facta member who sadly passed away a few years ago. It is also in memory of other Facta players like Soupy and Lucy who have died.

The tournament will begin on Monday January 23rd at around 8am UTC, give or take an hour or so. I'm posting this notice early to give you time to contact people to form teams.

Competition will consist of (6) different subject brainoffs of 10 questions being sent every day for five days – a total of 30 different subjects. You will receive brainoffs from ‘JMK'. The brainoffs will consist of some subjects that Susana contributed to or are related to Mexico, as well as some other random subjects.

Teams will comprise of two (2) people. If you have a team mate, please indicate who it is. If you don’t, please indicate “I’m in” and you will be paired with a team mate. Teams will be matched and posted. Please also post your team name.

All team names must be Mexican in nature or in some way related to one of the players we are remembering.

Jajajajajajaja!

In please

What a lovely idea to commenorate facta players who have died.  Although I didn't know Soupy personally, I always liked her comments.  She was always so warm and friendly.  She didn't care whether she did well or not but she was always involved.  A most positive presence.  Susanna, Lucy and Soupy - here's to you!

Any chance of teaming up with Quiz 3000?

We could be the "Siesta Snorers" or any other name.  I quite fancied Tore and Malinos!

Glad you have a partner. I don't think I would ever want to be unfaithful to my pairs partner chooky, but should there ever be a pairs Language or Thomas Hardy game I might think of being seduced by you. Good luck!
