The tournament will be held at Sidney Smith Hall, 2nd Floor (100 St. George St.) on the St. George Campus in the heart of downtown
Toronto.

Below are the Fees and Discount Structures for this tournament:

FEES
First team: $90
Second team: $80

DISCOUNTS
Dedicated staff: -$10
Working buzzers: -$10 per set

Post by RhinoNosetackle »

Hello everyone,

Congratulations to team AMERICAN BACON from Rochester, with Dan Blake, George Flevares, Eric Keihl, Melinda Adelman, and Heather Hynes, in winning the 2008 Canadian TRASH Regionals on Saturday!

The finals was on all-Rochester affair with team WACKY DELI YEAH! from the University of Rochester, consisting of Giant Jar of Mayo (?), Sal Ami (Calle Fitzgerald), The Cheese (Eric Merenstein?), Betty Bologna (Jon Marquis), taking runner-up honors.

Both teams ended up tied with a 9-2 record at the end of regulation; resulting in a one-game winner-take-all with AMERICAN BACON ending up on top by a score of 285-95.

Third place honors went to THE MINUS FIVE from the University of Toronto. Congratulations go to Eric "Iceman" Smith, Alex" Hitman" Darling, Miran "Macho Man" Terzic, and Jeremy "Hollywood" Benderoff.

Top Rookie team honors went to CONCIERGE MARIE from Queen's University for being the sole rookie team to advance to the Champions League top bracket filled with TRASH veteran teams.

MVP honors for went to Betty Bologna (aka Jon Marquis) from WACKY DELI YEAH!

And the "MOST NEGATIVES" award with 14 negs over 11 games went to Miran "Macho Man" Terzic from THE MINUS FIVE. (Fitting, eh?)

Full results will be coming this week.

Thank you to all those teams who participated in this tournament and the TRASH organization for an entertaining set of questions.
