Read 2000 Bible Quizzing Extravaganza Information Sheet text version

March 3, 2011 Dear Bible Quiz Coach: A new year of Bible Quizzing has begun! In 2011 we are studying Living Letters (1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 &2 Timothy, Titus and 1 & 2 Peter). Thank you in advance for your investment in this anointed ministry. This packet includes important information for the 2011 Bible Quiz Extravaganzas. Your church's quiz team(s) can participate in any one of the four tournaments. If the General Youth Division receives your registration by the deadline, a confirmation letter and a map of the area can be sent. The enclosed packet of material covers: Locations & hotel information Registration information (deadlines, fees, form, division) Guidelines and material coverage for each location Schedule

We'll once again be conducting separate quizzing in both the Intermediate and Experienced Divisions at each BQE. Please fill out the registration form completely, including each quizzer's age and experience, to accurately place your team in the appropriate division. Remember that the Intermediate Division is open to 12-14 year olds, as well as first-year quizzers in the 15-18 age group. Anyone who has quizzed through to a BQE in a previous year (that is, to that point in a previous season, regardless if he or she actually attended a BQE) is NOT considered as a first-year quizzer. I look forward to meeting you at the BQE in your region. Please pray that Bible Quizzing will be the best it can be for the sake of the young people involved. If you have any logistical questions, feel free to contact the General Youth Division directly. In Christ,

Nathan Reever North American Bible Quiz Director Enclosures

Any quizzer who has previously quizzed through to a Bible Quiz Extravaganza may NOT be considered a rookie (even if he didn't participate in a BQE). 2. The B.Q.E. registration form is designed to place a team in the proper Division. There will be the option of quizzing in Experienced Division offered to all Intermediate Division teams. The decision of which bracket a team will participate in must be decided at the time of registration. Trophies for both divisions quizzing will be given to first through fourth place teams along with the all-tournament team, depending on the number of teams participating. Experienced and Intermediate Division first and second place teams of each Extravaganza will automatically qualify for the North American Tournament if they place one spot below the number of teams that automatically qualify by the number of teams participating in their district tournament.
