Russell Quiz Meet Registration Information – February 3 – 5, 2017

Hello CMD!

The following is the registration information for the quiz meet at Russell Alliance Church in Russell, Manitoba, February 3-5, 2017. It has taken an alarming number of exchanged emails and texts to compile all this information, but it hopefully answers any questions you might have.

We have a hard deadline this time around, as the ski hill needs our information on a specific date. Please make whatever arrangements you need to (setting an alert on my phone is my technique), to ensure you meet the deadline of Monday, January 16, 2017.

The following information is sorted into “quizzing info” and “social info.”

Quizzing Info

  • Registration will be held at Russell Alliance Church on Friday night from 6:30 – 7:30.
  • Officials should not be included on team registration forms, even if they are travelling with you. Officials should contact (replace AT with @) directly, and he will register all officials.
  • Registration is $45, cheques made payable to Canadian Midwest Quizzing.
  • Officials are exempt from paying.
  • Material for the meet will be up to Luke 19:27.
  • Bagged lunches will be provided on Sunday, and there will also be bagged suppers to eat on the way to the ski hill.
  • To the best of your ability, indicate your line-ups on your registration forms. With larger teams especially, I understand this sometimes can’t come together until a little closer to the meet, so feel free to let me know that the line-ups are coming, and take a little extra time. Indicate rookies with a *, even in the C division.
  • Please make wise choices about registering 3-person teams—consider, if your team loses a quizzer, you may have to just quiz with 2.
  • 20 question quizzes in A, B, and C divisions. The C division is designated for rookies, but if you believe an exception should be made, please contact me directly (

Social Info

  • The social will be held at Asessippi Ski Hill for all participants including quizzers, coaches, and officials.
  • There are four options: skiing, snowboarding, tubing, or hanging out in the lodge (bring games if you plan to do this). You need to just choose one thing to do.
  • The rental of all the equipment is included in the registration cost, including helmets, which are required for all quizzers who are skiing, snowboarding or tubing.
  • You are welcome to bring your own gear to the meet, BUT it must be stored in vehicles as it is not allowed in the church or at billet homes. Make sure you check with your travel coordinators to ensure there is room.
  • All first time skiers or boarders will be required to take a lesson. The cost to first time lift users will be an additional $15 each. Please note the quizzers requiring lessons on the ski rental form as we need to schedule the correct number of instructors. This extra $15 per first time skier/boarder can be paid at registration Friday night. We are considering alternatives for first time lessons so please encourage your quizzers to try the activity even if the $15 is a concern.

Head coaches, you’ll need to download all three attachments to this email. The first is the standard quizzing registration form. The second is an individual collection form, which needs to be brought to the meet, as it acts as a waiver and confirmation. The third is a combined tally sheet of all the social information for your team.

When you submit registration, you need to submit both the ordinary registration form AND the team collection form.
