The following update comes from Mike Tabor, pastor of The Happy Church in Jackson, Kentucky:
Saturday April 8, 2006, the Happy Church quiz teams completed the Tri-State district Bible quizzing. This event was held in various locations throughout Ohio and marks the end to an incredible year of competition.
Our teams were successful against some of the brightest and best competition in the Ohio/Indiana/Kentucky area. These children are not only memorizing God’s Word, they are learning that with hard work and determination that they can not only compete, they can win!
The junior quiz team includes Vanessa Tabor (1st overall), Mary Beth Feltner (8th over all), Diana Lewis, and Victoria McAllister. They were required to memorize large parts of Bible chapters (Genesis 1-3 Romans 1-9).
Their hard work and effort paid off and won them the first place team trophy! Come and see the trophy at the HAPPY SHIP AND MORE (gourmet coffee shop, FedEx pack and ship, T-shirt design, eBay consignment and more) located on the corner of Highland and Broadway in Jackson, KY.
The senior Bible quiz team includes Philip Tabor (2nd overall), James Feltner (15th overall) and Travis Cornett. As a team they earned a fourth place!
Philip Tabor will quiz again May 6th against the top 14 seniors as seven of these children will compete as a team for the national championship in California July 22-28.
