Dear BQ coordinators,

National Finals for 2016 are now behind us. Congratulations to the Southern Missouri teams who participated in the competition. Special congratulations to the James River "Driving You Insane" team for their 3rd place finish.

It's hard to believe, but it will soon be time to begin the process of registration for the 2016-17 season. The district guidelines and registration form for leagues are attached. Please be sure to print off the registration form and return it to me along with your league registration fees by September 15. This will allow me to get the stats program set up and plans made for our first meet on October 1. It is IMPERATIVE that you meet the September 15 deadline in order for me to be prepared for that first meet.

The calendar is as follows:

October 1--League 1 at Central Assembly

November 12--League 2 at Evangel Temple (tentative)

January 14--League 3 at James River South

February 11--League 4--STILL NEED A LOCATION

Districts: March 25 at Lebanon First

Regionals: May 6 at Evangel Temple (tentative)

Again, the Experience League teams will not need to pay a registration fee. I will still need a registration form for these teams. Also, if your church has not had a quiz program for the past 3 years and you wish to register a team in A, B, or MSQ, you will not be required to pay for one team.

Scripture portions and other materials are available from Gospel Publishing House. For the first time, the CD products are also available as downloads (for a fee). I am privileged to work on the materials, and I suggested that we offer them as downloads because many new computers do not include a CD/DVD drive (mine included). You will see that the price is slightly less when you purchase as a download. This will also save you from paying shipping and handling.

I am available to work with any of your teams who need help in getting started, learning to memorize, etc. Feel free to call me. My number is 417-860-4513. Please try to make those calls after 4:30 pm during the week. I try not to take calls regarding quiz during my work day.


God bless you as you get started on the new season. I'm looking forward to seeing you.

Dilla Dawson
