Saturday we had a very interesting quiz tournament down in Bismarck. After making the two hour drive and arriving at the church it was time to get serious. The first quiz we almost lost on a mishap. I quizzed out in the 20 pointers and the quiz was not yet locked. It was very scary, but the other team ended up being one word away from winning. The second quiz, against Bismarck 1, we had the lead going into the thirty pointers and just needed one to clinch the quiz. Well, I did not convert and we lost. We had to face Bismarck 2 again and won. It was again time for the battle between us and Bismarck 1. Again we just needed one thirty pointer to win the quiz. London interrupted question 18 and got it wrong on the reread somehow I did the same thing, we still need a question to win. On question 19 London hit the buzzer and got it wrong which made us victorious. We still had to beat them one more time though to claim the first place spot. I don' t know if you could believe this or not but once again we just needed one thirty pointer to win the quiz and again I did not come through for my time. DEVASTATING! I ended up with 117 ppq, London (Bismarck 1 ended up with 113 ppq, and Alyssa (Bismarck 2) ended up with 77 ppq. It was a competitive quiz tournament but now we turn toward the extravaganza and look to be even better prepared for that quiz tournament.
