Dear Bible Quiz Coach,
I would like to take this time to cordially invite you and your team to attend the 2024 Colorado Invitational Bible Quiz Tournament. This year’s tournament will be held Firday and Saturday, February 16th & 17th at Woodside Baptist Church in Denver, Colorado.
It is hard to believe, but the CI tournament will be happening in just over two months! The CI 2024 presents a great opportunity for your team to compete with other top-level Bible quiz teams from around the country. Aside from the competition, the CI is also a great opportunity for healthy Christian Fellowship with other teens, coaches, parents, and supporters that love God and His Word. We believe that this tournament will be a challenge and encouragement for all team that attend.
This year’s theme verse will be Matthew 6:33. The verse says, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” What an important thought! No matter what we do in life, our main pursuit is to put God – His reign and righteousness – first in our lives. This tournament will be a great opportunity for us to both be encouraged and encourage others who are seeking that main pursuit in life.
The schedule and format for CI 2024 will be as follows:
–Friday will consist of an optional “spectacular-hybrid” style tournament. The tournament will take place from 10am-3:30pm (Lunch provided). This will replace the Division 2 tournament and will encourage every age-group and experience level to participate. Although the team sizes (and final format) will depend on the registration numbers, teams will be from 205 quizzers. The morning quizzes will pool all teams into round robin quizzes. The afternoon quizzes will split into three categories/”mini-tournaments” of Beginner, Mid-level, and Experienced levels. The winners of each category and top individual quizzers will receive awards. (The Friday Tournament will cover Matthew 1-8; 15-18; 24-28 = 15 chapters)
–Friday night and Saturday will consist of the Elite Level Tournament and will emphasize the Varsity level quizzing that we have all come to expect from the CI in previous years. Quizzing will start with several round robin quizzes, which will be followed by the double elimination final rounds. Finals are expected to take place around 3-4pm. The Elite tournament will cover all of Matthew 1-28. (A light breakfast and full lunch will be provided.)
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
