Reminder:  Location change.  The quiz this saturday is at Bradley Nazarene. Please be on time (8:15 is when registation opens, with opening meetings starting at 8:45. Remind your quizzers that anyone who can quote 7:14-24 as well as Bonnie will get a fantastic prize during the opening!  Most of you should have gotten an email from Karl.  If you didn't...we're having a baked goods fellowship time (which probably needs a better name).  Please bring some treats and plan to stay a little while.  Here's the details: 

* All teams please bring pies or other baked goods (cookies, cupcakes, etc) to share.  This is totally to SHARE - not as a fund-raiser.  Extra 'brownie points' (pun intended) for seasonal treats - I'm talking about PUMPKIN PIE!!!  But variety is nice, if you want to bring something else.  :)
* When the quiz is all finished - most of us will start 'sharing' with each other.  This will start when the St Louis Top Ten are announced and have to meet on the platform to make plans.  While they meet - the rest of us eat!! :D  But... yes, we will save them some.
* Bradley Church is happy to let us stay and do this.  We will need to make sure we put everything back in order after we're finished though - so plan to stay and help with that as much as needed.
* We'll ask those coaches who do NOT have anyone qualify for St Louis to take a lead role in managing the distribution.  Oh... we'll also need some paper plates, plastic forks, etc (volunteers?).  Oh - and whipped cream!
* As I said - not a fund-raiser.  HOWEVER - if Bradley Church wishes to provide some hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hot apple cider) to go along with the desserts, at a modest price - that would be great!

Hey everyone!!

Wanted to make sure everyone knew that the quiz for November 13th has been moved from Manteno to Bradley church of the Nazarene.  The address is 195 N Douglas, Bradley, IL.  As far as I know at this moment (since this is a last minute change) they won't be providing lunch.  If that changes, I'll send out an email.

A beautiful day!

I know some of you stuck around and enjoyed the beautiful weather playing a little football.  Today was a great day for quizzing!  I'm so proud of everyone on our district.  I hope all of you are enjoying John--its a great book to get to know Jesus.  My prayer for all of you is that beyond all the ribbons and the competition that each of you (quizzer, coach, volunteer) get to know our savior better. 

Thanks for being a part of this amazing ministry! 

IN OTHER IMPORTANT NEWS:  Bonnie has agreed to do a memory challenge for the November Quiz!  If you are a quizzer who has NOT placed in the top 10 at the last 2 quizzes--this challenge is for you:  MEMORIZE JOHN 7:14-24.  See if you can beat Bonnie!  Fabulous prizes!

I was really excited to see such an increased level of competition around the district. I was also superencouraged that over a third of you tried to jump on a memory verse. Also, a big thanks to Angie for applying God's word to our everyday lives. Don't forget, we're looking for other quizzers to do just that. If you're interested, please message or email Sara with the month you would like to do the devotion.

We're giving away a registration to the Michigan Invitational at theOctober Quiz. We want you to know that quizzing isn't always about who can memorize the most or jump the fastest. A lot of times, its about long van rides,overnight trips, practicing verses, or having something you studied pop into your head just when you need it.

Head to the forum--Under the JUST FOR FUN category--look for the WHO WANTS TO WIN topic and share a story about how quizzing has impacted your life in a positive way. You can talk about what you've studied, learned, or a significant person who has made a difference in your life through Bible quizzing. ANYONE (coach or quizzer) who shares a story here will be entered into the drawing to win a registration to Michigan. Feel free to share more than one story, or talk about each other's stories. Gods word is living and active and we want to hear how that is true in your life.
