Yesterday, our first quiz tournament of the year was held down in the city of Bismarck. We were very courageous in our trek down to the capital city having to go through a collision course that included snow, water on the roads, and much wind. The temperature rose over 30 degrees for the first time this year which was not necessarily a good thing. About the tournament, there was three teams in the experienced division for this tournament. Our first quiz was against Bismarck 2 whom we beat in just 20 questions. Our next quiz was against Bismarck 1 against whom we were not as successful. They beat us by a very fine margin. In our third quiz we were faced off against Bismarck 2 once again. This time it took us 23 questions to beat them. A couple of errors by me enabled them to be able to lock the quiz and then get a re-read wrong on question 20 to un-lock the quiz and force overtime. In our fourth quiz we faced Bismarck 1 for our second quiz against them. We had a chance mid-way through the quiz and then on question 18 I blew all chance of us winning. They were crowned the champions of the tournament. I was able to get first placeon the all-tournament team with 98 ppq. Over all I would grade the tournament for our team as a C+. Our team needs to get our material down a little bit better to be able to go on to greater things. It was a fine first tournament with a lot of room for improvement.
