John Charles Daly Memorial Tournament - Feb 24th, 2018

Postby Jewish Pugilist » Wed Dec 27, 2017 3:07 pm

Hi all,
This is the official announcement of an open trash set I have been working on for the last few months in my free time (with significant help from Brad Kirksey as well) for Spring. The Main UCF site will be on the date above starting at 9:30 AM and I will update what building it will take place in during the month of February.

Fee
$80 per team
-$10 for each staffer provided by a team
-$5 for bringing a buzzer (max 1)
There will be seven power-marked packets with the distribution below:

4/4 TV
4/4 Film
4/4 Music
4/4 Sports [Football 1/1, Basketball 1/1, Baseball and Soccer 1/1, and 1/1 other sports]
2/2 Games
1.5/1.5 Misc or Other Trash
.5/.5 Trash Literature

Here is the team sign-up sheet [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Q2j4HZRy_aAFznTL3m0H8pbrN_ZVMjLZgDNRVl6dv_U/edit?usp=sharing]

After the trash set, Ian Mackenzie will debut his sequel to CLAMAT, the animation tournament.

Half of the profits will be going to the super cool foundation, the Bounceback Foundation [more info here http://www.bouncebackfoundation.org/], run by Erik Nelson. Big Thanks to Jakob Myers for playtesting the first half of the set. If you have any questions about the set or would be able to playtest the set over Skype so I can continue to improve the tournament, feel free to comment below or email me at petertorres9@gmail.com.

I'd be down to playtest any set with 4/4 trash. This seems fun.

Having heard half of this set, can confirm it is cool and good.

Shouldn't this tournament be called the John Charles Patrick Croghan Daly Memorial Tournament?

Actually, I should have called it one of the many versions of his name with false middle names said by Bennet Cerf during the run of What's My Line

Why are you stopping at one when you can use all of them (it’s not too late)!

I'd like to play this, but not as a solo player. If possible could I be placed onto a team. Thanks.

Hi all,
I wanted to quickly announce I am 95% done with the set and have started to edit for difficulty and grammar. Big thanks to Brad for really carrying me in the Sports categories (especially Football/Basketball) giving me plenty of time to improve the set.

Not that I know of, on one of the southern qb pages someone (Robin Richards probably) said he would be potentially interested for their annual trash tournament, Larry Munson Memorial, but that is all so far

I'd really enjoy playing a midwest one, although I don't obviously represent any school.

I hope you can, Mike! I don't have many contacts up there but if someone approached me from there I would happily give it to them at a discounted price, as I just want as many people to hear my little passion project as possible

I would play this at a potential summer side event weekend (or before, if there's a suitable Midwest tournament to attach it to).

Hello Alan!

It'll be at UCF on February 24th.

Having written about a quarter of the set, I'm really excited about this! I hate to spoil the surprise, but maybe more than 80% of the tossups are going to stem from the the hit show Torchwood and the band Die Antwood!
