Status After Day Two

After yesterday on Day 1, both teams were in the top ten (out of 21 total teams), with Northeastern 2 in 6th place and Northeastern 1 in 8th place.  Today, Day 2, did not go as well and both teams slipped to 9th and 13th respectively.  However, everyone is still in good spirits and looking forward for what Day 3 (Thursday) brings.  Please continue to keep them in prayer!  They appreciate everyone’s support and want everyone to know they are having fun!  Today was also a talent contest today and there may be a video of some of the activities available somewhere soon.  Once we have a link we will post it here!

Both teams are together at Crown!

Ready For The Tournament To Begin

Although the tournament has yet to start, today was busy for quizzers and coaches alike.  Activities included carpet ball competitions, registration, coach’s quiz, coach’s meeting, etc.  Both Northeastern teams (along with accompanying parents) and all coaches are now together at Crown College and ready for the day to begin tomorrow!  We’ve received word that not only will the stats for the week be posted for everyone to keep track from home but also rumor has it that the finals will be streamed live online from Crown on Friday!  Stay tuned for more info!

One place we know you can check stats out at is on the Western PA district’s stats web site here:  http://www.biblequizstats.org/

Hey Northeastern District, your 2015 Internationals quizzers are well on their way to this year’s tournament at Crown College (http://www.crown.edu/) in St. Bonifacius, MN!  They headed out from the Elmira-Corning Regional Airport shortly after 7 AM this morning and, after a 5 hour delay and change of planes in Philly, they should now be on the ground in Minnesota and heading by vehicle to the college.  We hope to keep you updated as we’re able so stay tuned (myself from here in rural NY and Claudine and team from MN)!

Also, FYI….  We now are on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/northeasternquizzing

The end of Prelims

Preliminary quizzing is over. Northeastern Team 2 is in the championship bracket and will quiz at 10am tomorrow (Saturday). They will need to win 2 quizzes to make it to the finals. They covet your prayers for them to stay calm and quiz well. Northeastern Team 1 has made it into the consolation A bracket and can finish as high as 10th place. They quiz at 10:30am tomorrow and would also ask that you be praying for them as they quiz. They need to win twice to make the consolation finals. Thank you all for your prayers. It has been a great week so far and we all look forward to seeing what God does tomorrow and how He uses the quizzing to teach us about Himself.

Nats Day 2

Day #2 is in the books and it was a day of ups and downs. Team #1 has had some rough quizzes, but we are hopeful that tomorrow morning will be better and they will make the xyz’s. Team #2 is doing a great job! They are currently in second place with 2 quizzes left. We covet your prayers for the quizzing tomorrow and for safety as the kids get a chance to do something fun in the afternoon. We can’t wait to see what God has in store for us all. We have learned so much from Him this week – what a great God we serve! Thankful for God’s Word!
