February!

Posted 29 Jan, 2014 10:53 AM by Ron

Well, it hasn't warmed up since we last met, and several of you have had a few more snow days because of the cold and blowing snow.  As much as we would love to believe snow days are great for studying, they really tend to make us lazy. Our next quiz is February 8th at Kankakee First-and is a combined childrens/teen quiz so we'll be doing things a little differently.  We will start final registration at 8:45.  Registration is now open.  I need officials, especially since there is also a childrens quiz, so we'll be short some of our adults.  Please let us know if you can help!  This of course includes bringing equipment, and adult help.  ;)

January Quiz

Posted 05 Jan, 2014 02:31 PM by Ron

Hi All!

Well, the weather outside is...cold.  Really cold.  We'll keep an eye on it is as it freezes, melts, snows some more, and so on this week, but today we still plan on gathering next week at Chicago First.  We will start final registration at 9, with quizzing starting at 9:15.  Registration is now open.  I need officials, especially since there is also a childrens quiz, so we'll be short some of our adults.  Please let us know if you can help!

As many of you know, lots of snow is predicted over the next 24 hours.  Right now, we are still planning on having the quiz.  Feel free to give us weather updates from your area, and let as know as soon as possible if you decide not to make the trip.  We will notify everyone as soon as possible and will also post here if a decision is made to cancel.

DECEMBER!!

Posted 09 Dec, 2013 09:38 AM by Ron

Registration is NOW open for the quiz this weekend!  Sorry for the delay, time got away from my with our All-Star trip to St. Louis.  Speaking of that--our District was well represented with our A team taking 2nd overall, and our B team taking 2nd in their division (going undefeated in tournament play!!)  Overall, we had a fantastic time, and our students really modeled community, friendship and good sportsmanship all weekend.  We have a lot to be proud of. :)

Please make sure to get your registrations in by 1pm on Thursday if at all possible.  If you are NOT attending, send an email along to let me know that as well, so I'm not trying to track you down Thursday afternoon.

We need officials and equipment, so you can register that on the website too, or email/text us so we know you're coming!  

The quiz is at Chicago Northside.  We will again start registration a little later -- 9 AM and we plan to finish by 2:30. Remember--we will be quizzing over ONLY chapters 11-13. This will give teams an opportunity to get back earlier, or perhaps plan for something fun in the city before heading home! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
