Chicago Open Trash 2018 (late July, 2018)

Postby Auks Ran Ova » Mon Jul 11, 2016 6:05 am

Even before the dust has gotten kicked up, much less settled, on 2016's Chicago Open Trash, we've decided that we enjoyed writing it so much we're going to do it again. 2017 already has a bunch of announced Sunday events, so we've chosen to claim the next best thing. Your intrepid writers will, once again, be Carsten Gehring, Andrew Hart, and me. As an institution, we will remain generally opposed to the words and deeds of Randy Wittman.

Much like 2016's event, the distribution for this tournament will resemble but not precisely match this:

4/4 Sports: 1/1 football; 1/1 baseball; 1/1 basketball; 1/1 other
4/4 Film: 1/1 pre-1980s; 2/1 or 1/2 1980s and 90s; 2/1 or 1/2 2000s with a mix of genres
4/4 TV: .5/.5 pre-1990; 1/1 1990s; 2.5/2.5 2000 or later with a mix of genres
4/4 Music: 1/1 rock; 1/1 pop; 1/1 rap, R&B, soul; 1/1 other or more of big three with a mix of times
1.5/1.5 video games
1/1 comics/trash lit
1.5/1.5 other

2018's event should resemble 2016's in most major elements: the set will contain 12-ish packets consisting of questions of reasonable length and similar difficulty.

All teams are once again welcome, though the staff and room situation may place practical limits on the number. Additionally, we may once again implement a tiered registration system allowing priority registration for teams containing people playing or staffing CO proper, in order to encourage people interested in trash to play or staff CO proper. Our hope is to be the main event on CO Sunday, but we'll work closely with other side event organizers to plan a reasonable schedule.

More information will be provided in maybe a year or so when it's a little more reasonable to start thinking about it. We look forward to seeing you there, and at the two Chicago Opens preceding it!

Hopefully I will still be alive in the distant future of 2018 to use this post for field updates.

We want the buzzers and we're going to score.

Gotta talk to Andrew/Carsten to see what sort of tying-to-CO-involvement we're doing this year, but don't let that stop you from forming teams!
