I hope that you're having a fantastic holiday weekend! We are starting our quiz season strong on Saturday at Lombard over Galatians 1-3. We will do on-site registration at 8:30 that morning. The cost will continue to be $3 per quizzer. PLEASE PLEASE register your teams, equipment or ability to officiate online at ccdquiz.org no later than THURSDAY AT NOON. *we always need officials and equipment--the more the merrier!!) This allows us time to make a schedule and be ready to go sooner on Saturday morning. Scott has been working on a ticket/prize system for quizzing that only is slightly about quizzing, and more about mystery and fellowship. We're excited to kick that off! At this time, lunch is out, so we will plan for an hour for that. please be respectful of other teams and be on time returning from lunch. We hope to wrap up the day by 3:30 at the latest.
Other things to take note of: Quizfest will be at Kankakee First on October 24th--this is a fun local invitational with experienced and novice teams. We would encourage you to attend--it is a lot of fun, and people for several states come!
Q2016 will be June 27-July 2 at Southern Nazarene University. We have set the cost at $230 before transportation. We strongly encourage you to start saving for that, as it will be a super fun event for all skill levels and we really want to have strong representation.
If you have any questions, please be sure to let us know!! See you Saturday!!This post has 0 comment(s).

If you have looked at the schedule you may have seen that our very first quiz of the year is not scheduled!
Fear not, the quiz is, in fact scheduled. We are having some technical issues, and the page will not update correctly.Our first quiz is going to be at Lombard Church of the Nazarene on 12Sept.
All of the other information on the schedule page is correct.
Hope to see you all soon!This post has 0 comment(s).

The 2015-2016 Quiz year will cover Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon (don't worry--it's not as long as it sounds). We will continue to charge $3 per quizzer for district quizzes. This is to help offset the costs of ribbons, trophies and other event costs.
Changes are coming to our website!! I re-created the forums and encourage coaches/students to check them out. We're hoping this will generate some community discussion as we enter into the new quiz year!
I have created a shutterfly share account for our pictures, so the pictures link is working again. If you take pictures of your local team, and would like to share those, let me know and I can add you as a contributor to that page. I just grabbed a few pictures from the year to get started (and added ONE picture from Q into the ACTS folder--going forward hopefully we will do better at keeping this current).
Helpful links and open tournaments have also been updated.
The schedule for next year has been added. We have not yet scheduled churches. We do prioritize based on overall support of the program. We like for the host church to provide lunch, and we like for everyone to participate in that lunch. It keeps our day running smoothly and it promotes and supports other local teams. We realize not everyone loves pizza and hot dogs the way we do, but we still ask that you do your best to support the local church providing lunch. The church also must be large enough to host. If your church is NOT large enough, you are able to partner with other area churches (example: Danville West side isn't big enough, so Marcia coordinates the use of Southside, and still provides the lunch). One other thing: we do consider geographic locations and all the quizzes can't be in Waukegan or Danville. If you have questions or would like to host, please contact us and we can discuss the details to see if you're eligible.
We are hoping to get several new churches involved this year! We hope you'll help us get the word out, talking to your friends, pastors and neighboring churches! We'd love to come visit and help set something up!This post has 1 comment(s).
