DUCK Bowl homage to TTGT11

Actually, DUCK Bowl at DePauw did this very thing with a trash tournament a couple years ago. We actually wrote 30 packets of 25 TU each. People came up with some ideas which worked well. We had one round in which you could make the ages-old choice between "Sex and Chocolate" (choosing to answer que...

First, I thought the questions were good, overall. But I do have a few nit-picky quibbles: 1. From Regionals to TRASHionals, it seems many sports toss-ups are on people who are involved in some form of controversy. Just this year's cycle of two tournaments has seen questions on Albert Haynesworth, C...

Question discussion

Sorry to hold up discussion of the questions so long. Anyone playing at the mirror at Boston University or the Jekyll Tournament By The Sea may now address individual questions and answers. Hope they were enjoyable!

Hopefully, this date will be better for a greater number of teams. Please convince your squad to come...

Need ONE team for DUCK Bowl

DUCK Bowl is all but written and we currently have 5 teams. We'd love just ONE more team so that we can avoid byes and get everyone 10 games for their money instead of 8. Even if you cannot field a full four-person team, please e-mail me at [email protected].com if you're interested and I'll try to h...

Though we're NOT changing the date yet, I'm curious to know if more people would come to Greencastle if we held the tournament a week earlier (March 10). If you fall into this category, please either respond here or send me a message to that effect at blindmoose-AT-yahoo-DOT-com. Similarly, if you'r...

The organizers of DUCK Bowl are pleased to announce we're nearing a deal with Boston University to host an Eastern mirror of our event. I'm sure the directors of that tournament will make the requisite post soon. If someone in a westerly or southerly direction from Indiana would also like to mirror ...

Freelancing and Registration

Eric Berman and I are in the thick of writing questions for this year's DUCK Bowl, but we wanted to re-iterate our desire for freelance help. We'll be happy to give up the rest of the set for a packet's worth of questions. If you ask nicely, we may even be able to locate last year's set, too. If you...

That's certainly one way to look at it. You could also argue that TRASH is looking to expand the canon of pop culture knowledge for younger players and also include toss-ups on material better-known by those people paying attention to TV, music, etc for the last ten years. That seems to be among the...

Just a couple quick thoughts: There's one aspect of this Airwolf discussion which seems to be lacking to me: The fact that the best trash teams are not usually composed of undergrads, but instead of older, veteran players. Therefore, shouldn't you write some harder questions to appeal to that client...
