While the rest of us are prepping for GEPCP next year, four of our district quizzers were still digging into Acts.
Levi Havens and Olivia Gorrell were on the SNU B team that placed 3rd at the national tournament.
Mallory Leake and Megan Marotz were on the SNU A team which WON the double elimination tournament to take the National Championship!!! Congratulations to all four of our South Texas Quizzers and all ten of our regional quizzers who represented us well this year!

While Mallory, Megan, Olivia, and Levi are representing our district and region at the national tournament in Louisville, we’re planning for the new season. Teresa Wheeler is working with 6th graders at South Texas Kids Camp this week, getting them ready for Teen Quizzing.
Material Covered: Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon
Yes, a lot of books, but it’s actually about 1/2 the length of Acts.
The season schedule is posted at the link above. You’ll note that Extravaganza has been moved to much earlier in the year, so our district finals will be in March instead of April and the Dallas Invitational has been moved to late April.
Q2016 may be a bit closer to home than Nashville so I hope many of you choose to attend this year. We had eight quizzers from our district from Cove, Hill Country and Killeen participate in 2014. I’d like to see a lot more than that in 2016.
Cove practices on Sundays. This is how I plan on covering material for practice. You can set your own schedule, but this may help some of you. If you have any who want to try and memorize it all, it can be done at a pace of about 3 verses a day.
