2014 - A year in perspective - News and Notes

The quiz year is over, finally. The kids are off playing, the parents are vacationing
and coaches are plotting for next year. This year saw a major change in NABQT
team qualifiers. The juniors hit it out of the park with a record amount of  teams
while the seniors fell a little short.

It was nice to see some new blood come on the scene as there were several new
champions in the different divisions. I noted some stuff earlier this year but will
touch on that at a latter date.

My predictions were not that far off this year. My teams did very well and they
placed high with two of them winning two of the four titles. This is also a sad
time because we have lost several long time quizzers. 33 last year quizzers
spoke recently at the NABQT Prayer and Share service.

It was amazing at the content and honesty that was provided. You could see those
headed to the ministry, those interested in christian work, and others who were just
having a hard time expressing themselves and what they want to do in life.

All in all, that service says and does a lot. I recommend potential quizzers watch
that video and listen to what these young people have to say. Not all are perfect
but it takes guts to admit mistakes, especially in front of a lot of people and those
viewing.

In just a few weeks, some important decisions will be made. To coach or not to
coach. To quiz or not to quiz. To commit or not to commit. To sacrifice or not to
sacrifice. Only time will tell.

Anyways, for now I'm going to take a much needed break from blogging. As
always, Quiz On!
