Most exciting match this season
At District Finals we were playing White Cloud. Neither team had any losses yet. Whitney got 2 of the 30 pt. questions incorrect and had 3 10 pt. correct. She quizzed out with only 60 points. We still managed to take 1st at District Finals when Caedy nailed the last question to win the game.
Favorite contest (weirdest, most clever, etc) The quizmaster (at Regionals) misread a question, (completely botched it up) but didn't call the misread (but we still love her ;-). The other team interrupted and answered correctly. When our team called "Contest" the quizmaster immediately said, "Contest accepted."
Favorite quiz question
What were Damascus citizens called?
Favorite verse from Corinthians
Whitney - 2 Cor. 7:1
Caedy - 2 Cor. 1:20
David - 2 Cor. 10:17

Favorite non-quiz related moment this year
The quiz parties at the coach's home after almost every meet. Having a German chocolate cake and Pastor Bernie singing happy birthday to one of our quizzers at Michiana.
