Bible Quizzer Anticipation

Hundreds of teens are enroute to Colorado Springs to compete in the 2016 Bible Quiz Fellowship National Tournament. The tournament begins Wednesday evening and concludes Saturday night.

If you've not seen quizzing; you've no idea how tense it can be (nor how delightful it is!)

But quizzing is not simply quoting verses. They are asked who/what/when/where/why questions out of each verse; sitting on electronic pads in teams of five, the first one up provides the question and is crazy...they are incredible.
