August PQA

The PQA held its first day of quizzing at Faith Baptist Church in Taylors, SC. The day was filled with many good quizzes. This year’s league will be made up of 24 teams from 9 different ministries. There was one very noticeable absence and that was Athens. Over the years Athens has put together some really powerful teams. I doubt anyone will ever forget the team that won Nationals or the team that took the PQA Tournament by one question over my team from Pleasant View. Those were some great times. Hopefully Athens will be able to get a team up for next season. Also of note this year the league will have its first ever Jr. PQA champ. There are six teams competing this year over the book of James, I was unable to attend this quiz meet but from what I’ve been told it was some very good quizzing. I would also like to extend a warm welcome to Grace from down in Columbia, SC. They will be apart of the PQA this year. Welcome aboard!
