Announcement: Great Lakes TRASH Regional at Brock University

I would like to apologize to all involved for the lateness of this announcement; a recent cycling accident put a wrench into a number of things in my life.

Without any further ado,

Brock Trivia is proud to announce that it will be hosting the Great Lakes TRASH Regional at Brock University's St. Catharines campus on Saturday, November 11, 2006.


The format will depend on the number of teams participating; however, it will not be more than round-robin(s) with a final or pools and rebracketing (lack of tiebreakers willing). Games will be played using regular TRASH rules, including bonus lames and steals.


Base Fee: $100
Working Buzzer: -$10 per
Competent Staffer: -$10 per
Travel Discount: -$10 for over 150 kilometers (93 miles), -$20 for over 400 kilometers (248 miles)
Never played TRASH before: $20 flat rate
Team contains someone from World Series of Pop Culture: $20 flat rate.
Minimum fee per team: $40 (unless under "newbie" or "WSOPC" rate)

Canadian currency will be accepted on par with American currency.


Your Tournament Director will be yours truly, Andy Saunders (two fractured elbows and all). Please contact me via email at andy [at] andysthoughts [dot] com if you are planning on attending. Please send me the usual info (school/team name, # of teams/buzzer/staff, contact details) ASAP so I can ensure we have enough rooms, staff, and equipment.

Periodic further announcements with field updates and logistical details will be forthcoming. In the meantime, please contact me at the above address with any questions or concerns. Thanks!

Those teams that have already contacted me, I thank you -- I will respond to your concerns (re: hotels and the like) by Monday, October 9th.

We currently have 18 teams confirmed for the 2006 Great Lakes TRASH Regionals at Brock University on November 11th:

University of Pittsburgh x 5
University of Rochester x 3
University of Toronto x 2
Case Western Reserve University x 2
Googling Lezebians (Carnegie Mellon)
Star Whores: Attack of the Clap (Michigan alum)
Wayne the Main Brain (Dan Blake et al)
Rochester Athletic Club (George Flevares et al)
Robert Schmidt et al
Sarah Lowden et al

Despite the seemingly large field at the moment, we do still have room in the tournament for your entry if you have yet to let us know that you are coming. However, we are in need of moderators at the moment, and would likely need to see an extra buzzer system in conjunction with a new entry.

In fact, due to the lack of moderators that teams are bringing at the moment, they will now be discounted at $20 per moderator.

I also have a couple of Free Agents if your team is looking for an extra player or two.

To enter, or if you have any questions, you may continue to contact me at [email protected]. See you on the 11th!
