ANNOUNCEMENT: VCU OPEN TRASH (8/14)

Post by Frater Taciturnus » Wed May 18, 2011 7:28 pm

The 2011 incarnation of VCU Open Sunday will be held on Sunday, August 14th. It will be a trash tournament written by Mike Cheyne and George Berry. We have commenced writing the set, and expect no issues with on-time completion or question quality. There is no packet-submission requirement or discount for this event.

As the main site of VCU Open will be at the University of Maryland, so will this tournament.

The target difficulty of VCU Open Sunday: Trash Tournament Edition is probably around SCT difficulty.

We have arranged a mirror in Michigan (8/7) and would especially like to see mirrors in Texas, California and Florida. We would also be interested in mirrors in other areas. If you would like to mirror VCU Open, please e-mail Cody Voight at voighta@vcu.edu.

The registration fee for this tournament is $120. There is a buzzer discount of $5. If you staff one tournament and play the other, you will get a -$10 discount for the tournament you play in, e.g. if you staff VCU Open, you will be given a -$10 discount if you play this tournament.
-
If you would like to register a team, please contact me at georgeberry.vcu@gmail.com

This set is the set Mike Cheyne previously announced last year--

I'll talk a little bit about what to expect from this set now that it's no longer its stand-alone thing.

I'll rank the difficulty as about "enjoyably vanity." A lot of you know me and know what I like, and you can expect a fair portion of that. That doesn't mean I'm going to ask about super obscure stuff, especially in the tossups, but it also means you might not see a ton of things in the stuff I don't like (like, say, rap, the NBA, video games after 1995)--of course, George will help fill the gaps there to some extent. I think it will be its own sort of unique experience which I think will be enjoyable.

There will be fourteen packets. There isn't really a sub-distro inside the categories, but I'll try to keep it reasonable. One thing that I have a tendency to write are cross distro bonuses, so that might result in an overflow of some categories on a packet by packet basis.

Currently, Donald Taylor has written some questions as well, and if anyone else wishes to fire off some questions, contact me or George. I'd like to limit the number of collaborators just to keep it simple.

I'm really looking forward to having this mirrored, especially in Michigan.

http://tinyurl.com/vcutrash is the spreadsheet for putting teams and free agents together for this.

If you are looking for a team/teammate you should probably fill it in.

The Donald himself, Donald Taylor, will be writing some questions for this. He has especially been helpful in writing on non big three sports.

I'm going to throw myself out there for free agency. I'm worth at least 20 points a game and 2 amusing negs per tournament.

I believe, with the exception of tiebreakers, every question is now written for this and editing has commenced. I would be interested in playtesting categories, especially those in areas I'm not the best at writing at (music + sports). I can't set up any schedule (and I actually would find it most convenient in the afternoon, as opposed to most people), but if you're in the IRC when I'm around, check out #trash.

I played on this set yesterday at WUSTL and I must say I really really liked it. I told Mike about some of my quibbles but overall I thought it was well written, the breadth of the questions was appropriate, and that it was very tasteful. He and the others who wrote it deserve high kudos and if you have an opportunity to play on it and like trash, you'll enjoy it.

This tournament is now two weeks away-- If the team you have been putting together is not registered, please do so soon.

Also, for people who are still free agents: there are teams that still have holes, some of which have posted in this thread. I can also give you an email address for some of the shorthanded teams if you email me.

NC Wesleyan needs a teammate, yo. We were half-decent enough to be middle-of-the-pack at CULT nationals, and this is the same team. We are nice people!

Right now these teams are registered. Given our current staff limitations I am going to put a cap of 11 registrations unless extra staff materializes in the next few days.

Maryland has registered two teams, so the field is closed unless we find more staff.

With 11 teams we will run a full RR plus finals as necessary.

Unless I hear otherwise from Maryland, I am going to say this will be the same as VCU Open which Cody says is:
