Do the teams have to consist of undergraduates from the same school?

The same school would be preferred, but is not necessary.

A couple of quick announcements about Bayou-a-Drank:

There will most likely be a mirror of Bayou-a-Drank at the University of Washington on 12/4.

Also, many of the questions used in Bayou-a-Drank will also be used as a mirror in this year's TrashMasters and UTC will be providing some of the questions used in the set at Tulane. The two tournaments have become sort of a tag-team effort between myself and UTC/Charlie. The Bayou-a-Drank set at Tulane will still be an undergraduate tournament, while I imagine that the TrashMasters set will be open, but I suppose that's up to them.

In terms of some of the rules for the Bayou-a-Drank tournament, votes among the Tulane teams have seen these to be the majority opinions:
NO on powers, YES on negs, and YES on bounce-backs for bonus sets.
I realize that the presence of bounce-backs may be controversial--I've always thought that they're a fun addition to any tournament, that they reward the teams with greater knowledge (but maybe not as great of buzzer speed) on a subject, and they make rounds more high-scoring and usually more exciting. Again, this is just where our club is leaning, but we may be persuaded otherwise if other teams feel differently.

It's official: this event will begin at 9AM in the Norman Mayer Building on Tulane's campus. Norman Mayer is #6 on this map: http://tulane.edu/about/visiting/uptown-campus-map.cfm
...or a gray building off of St. Charles. The best place to park will be on Newcomb Place across Freret Street from the Academic Quad, or near Howard-Tilton Library (#60). Parking on Newcomb Place is permitted during the weekend; once you're there it is about a 5 minute walk across Freret and down Law Road to Norman Mayer on your left.
Confusing, I know, so if you get lost or have any questions feel free to contact me at 770.853.4817.

Well, if teams have a say on this, Auburn is opposed to having bouncebacks.

Duly noted. Tulane's teams were split on the idea originally, but have been souring on it of late, so I think we're probably going to scrap that idea.

Tulane C won this event, going 9-0 in ten rounds. Thanks to Auburn, LSU, and the Tulane teams that participated in this event--stats to be posted soon.

Auburn--we still owe you guys ten dollars. I forgot about it over the course of the day; we can get either mail or just give it to you the next time we're in the same ZIP code.

Whatever is easiest for you guys. Thanks for hosting this, we had a fun time.

p.s. Is a private forum going to be set up for question discussion?

I feel like we'll get better discussion out of a forum type setting.

Only slightly related, can I get you to e-mail me the set? josephnation28@gmail.com

They're on their way. The person with the stats saved on their computer was having technology issues and just flew home for Thanksgiving today. They should be up soon.
