November PQA

This past Saturday the PQA held it monthly quizzing at Calvary Baptist Church in Simpsonville SC. Bro. Wood opened the day with a word of thanks to all the men who have served in the US Armed Forces. He talked of the great sacrifice that some have made and are still making and how each of us should be thankful and let those who we are in touch with know that we are thankful for what the are doing or what they have done so that we can have the freedoms that we have here in this great land.

The Day’s Quizzing
#14 Calvary Chosen vs. #17 Temple Swords
I was able to preview this quiz and I must say it was one of the best quizzes of the day. The quiz was a back and forth quiz for the first six question with the two teams tied at 60 after question 6. Temple was leading 160 -140 going into the final question Andrew Sluder took this question quizzed out and lead his team to a 180-140 victory! It was a fun quiz to watch. Temple has three guys that really are getting better each time I see them quiz. Andrew Sluder quizzed really well and was able to quiz out on question 18. He was helped out with a strong showing by teammates Christian Shockley and Nathan Young.

Of note: Casey Lovegrove quizzed well for Calvary but didn’t get much help from her teammates. She had 4 correct.

#7 Calvary Challengers over #15 Temple Shepherds 240-110
Haley Singleton quizzed out for Calvary on question 13 and Hannah Gentry quizzed out on question 14 for Temple.

#11 Calvary Conquerors over #26 Pleasant View Mighty Men 230-130
Jacob Hall and Madelaine Williams both quizzed out for Calvary.

#1 Faith 3 over #5 Calvary Watchmen 290-100
This quiz was a very close quiz. The score was tied at 130 on question 13. Faith got a team bonus (20pts) on question 14 and pulled away to an easy win. Jared Bryson quizzed out for Faith on question 18. And Tyler Ziemer of Calvary, Quizzed out without errors on question 11.

#5 Hampton Park Fishermen over #11 Calvary Conquerors 320-100
This was a very impressive win by Hampton Park. They held two of Calvary’s top quizzers in check and dominated the quiz with great teamwork. Daniel Flaaten and Auria Garland both quizzed out without errors.

Looking Ahead

Next month quizzing will be held once again at Pleasant View Baptist Church. This will be Saturday Dec. 9th at 2pm. I hope to see you there.
