Lombard this Saturday!

Posted 11 Sep, 2013 09:04 PM by Ron

Hey everyone!

Guess what!  I just logged in to the ccdquiz.org site and it looks like only 5 teams will be at the quiz on Saturday.  THANK YOU to Actions speak louder than words, Mundy, Manteno, Chicago 1st and Sheperding group for getting registered.  Chicago 1st was the FIRST team to register, and therefore their registration will be free.  :) 

Right now I could still use another quizmaster --or 2--if theres a bunch of teams hiding somewhere.  (I have Ryan, Pastor Charles, Scott, Lori) and another for content (I have Stephanie, Row, Bonnie)

I can't get a number to Lombard for Lunch until I know who is attending.  I can't make a schedule until...yep.  I know who is attending.  :) 

We will check rosters starting at 8:45 and begin quizzing close to 9:15 -cost to quiz is $3 per quizzer!  Lunch will be provided at the church (Pizza, cookie, chips, drink) for $4.  We always encourage people to stay and to support the local church if possible.  We hope to be done by 4pm.  (This of course depends on the number of officials available).

Ryan will also have information about experienced and novice quizzing at Quizfest--which is a regional tournament in October.

See you Saturday!
Grace and Peace,

It's that time of year!

Hey everyone!

Many of you have noticed that there is no Quizmania this year!  This is in an effort to get you to reach out to others.  Use the month of August to really have a kick-off for your group.  Invite other local churches to join the fun!  Scott and I would love to attend any of the events YOUR LOCAL church plans.  Just let us know when they are.  We'll come to a practice, a pizza party, a weekend retreat, whatever you want. 

This program does not belong to the Christensens.  This program belongs to you.  It is up to you to get your friends excited about learning the Word of God.  We want to be a support, encouragement and teacher to you.  However, we can't do everything.  We need YOU to OWN this program.  It's yours.  From the best quizzer to the worst quizzer.  From the veteran coach to the brand new one--Bible quizzing exists because of you. 

Materials for this year are on the website at www.youthquiz.com If you need help ordering, shoot me an email ccdquiz@yahoo.com or text me!  I'd love to help you out. 

Our first quiz will be in LOMBARD on September 14th.  We will be covering Romans 1-4.  We are excited to start the season off in Lombard, and have several new host churches!  If your church is interested, we still have one opening, so please let us know!! 

We would also like to enourage you to bring along parents or other adults that might be interested in learning how to officiate.  The more officials we have, the more fun we can have!

Romans and James

Posted 20 May, 2013 02:32 PM by Ron

Congratulations to the AMAZING Chicago Central Quizzers.  Our A team took first for the first time since 2003. Our B team took a strong 2nd, winning us some serious trophy points.  Nathan Tabor also competed in a comprehensive exam about the material, and took 2nd! (one entry per district).

As we look forward, we have several exciting new things to announce.  I have updated the schedule (dates only at this point) and have added a new tab which gives you information about all of our regional tournaments as well. 

One thing you will notice--Q2014 is not yet listed on our schedule.  It is expected to be over 4th of July week, but exact dates are not yet available.  I encourage everyone to start fundraising now, as this is always an incredible experience.  We will do our best to keep costs low, but for now, I would plan on $350 per participant.  This may change, but its better to figure high.  This cost does not currently include transportation.  We will talk more about this event as details become available.

Materials are not yet available for Romans and James, in part due to use of NIV11.  It appears that there are a few things being worked out on the publishing house side that has prevented the release of completed materials. I will let you know when these materials become available (hopefully sooner rather than later).  The memory verse list displaying on the youthquiz.com site is NOT accurate, so please do not use it-I will get a memory verse list out as soon as one is released to me. 

Please start looking at churches in your area that don't have teams, and start encouraging them to get started!!  Scott and I are both willing to travel to meet and help new (and old) coaches get ready for the upcoming year.
