TRASH in 2010

Post by glorious achievement »

This is a two-part topic. First, are there any TRASH tournaments planned in 2010 other than the two mentioned on these forums? Due to a number of transportation issues, we missed every single one in Fall 2009, and the consensus on the team seems to be that that is a damn shame.

Second, if there aren't any tournaments or at least very many planned, what would be the interest in a TRASH tournament run in Pittsburgh sometime in March? The tournament would most likely be packet submission, exact date, price, and set composition to be determined.

Thanks very much.

CO Trash
Penn Bowl Trash II

-An all-movie side event is in the writing stage, but the editors have yet to announce when it will be played.
-Trashtwostrophe (a collaboration between Jeff Geringer and several others) is somewhere between the consideration and writing stage. The last I heard was that the editors sought to have it complete by March to be used as a side event at a tournament at Illinois.
-I am considering writing a trash tournament this summer (making it available for Fall 2010 tournaments as a side event), but I wouldn't count on that until I make a more formal announcement.

EDIT: In the interests of keeping one collective list of Trash tournaments (thus avoiding future similar threads), I will (try to) update my post as people point out more tournaments or I hear of more tournaments.

I think Penn would be up for sending a team for a potential tournament in March. However, I don't know the exact date you are planning it for. It could potentially fall in our spring break, in which case we probably could not get a team together. In terms of other tournaments, does anyone know if GARBAGE is supposed to happen this year? I have not heard anything about it up to this point.

I don't have plans on a GARBAGE event. My personal project is the movies tournament I'm working on.
