Second announcement: Gottfried Keller trash tournament

Post by Birdofredum Sawin » Fri Jun 09, 2006 1:44 am

It occurred to me that I might want to post an announcement of this trash tournament in the actual trash forum. As announced in less appropriate forums, the first Gottfried Keller Trash Tournament will be held Sunday, July 30 at the University of Chicago. All questions will be written by myself and Ezequiel Berdichevsky, and will closely resemble in style and distribution last year's Mordecai Richler tournament. As of now, we have interest from a number of teams, including:

* Dan Passner, Chris Romero, Ted Stratton and Matt Weiner
* Susan Ferrari, Ed Cohn, Adam Kemezis (?)
* Chris Borglum, Seth Kendall, etc.
* Greg Sorenson, etc.
* Jerry Vinokurov, Ryan Westbrook, Charles Meigs, etc.
* Mike Sorice and his BFF brigade
* Kevin Olmstead, etc.
* Matt Lafer, Will Turner, Dave Rappaport, Dave Rappaport's mom

If you're interested in registering a team, or if you want to play but lack teammates, please email me at adyaphe at gmail dot com.

Thanks,

Andrew

Shit man, if my mom is playing, ya'll might as well just declare our team the winners right now, cause nobody else has a chance.

You think I'm kidding.

I'm not.

Incidentally, I'm looking for teammates (or, as I like to call them, best friends forever.) Please e-mail me if you're interested.

Birdofredum Sawin wrote:With a few weeks to go before the tournament, here's some more information about the Keller. First: The tournament will start at 10 AM on Sunday the 30th (and NOT at 11 AM, as previously announced). Again, the fee is a flat $75 per team. No buzzer discounts or anything, though it would be a good idea for some of you to bring buzzers so we can actually play the games. The games will be held in Cobb Hall; I'll be emailing more exact information to the team contacts as the tournament approaches. Also, here's another update on the field:

* Dan Passner, Chris Romero, Ted Stratton and Matt Weiner
* Susan Ferrari, Ed Cohn
* Chris Borglum, Seth Kendall, etc.
* Greg Sorenson, Jeremy White, Brian Hight, Mike Burger
* Jerry Vinokurov, Ryan Westbrook, Charles Meigs, etc.
* Mike Sorice and his BFF brigade
* Kevin Olmstead, etc.
* Matt Lafer, Will Turner, Dave Rappaport, Dave Rappaport's mom
* Dave Letzler + possible teammates
* Tim Hartman, Matt Dang, Vince Wong, Matt Gerhard
* Tyler Johnson, Robert Flaxman, Alma Molino, and Colby Burnett
* Susan Mitchell, Trey Morris, Matt Nance, and perhaps Eric Kwartler

Free agents (still) include: Ahmad Ragab; others who are being coy (e.g. the immortal Chris Zimpleman)

If you're interested in registering a team, or if you want to play but lack teammates, please email me at adyaphe at gmail dot com.
