Announcement: Erik Axel Karlfeldt Memorial Trash Tournament

Post by Birdofredum Sawin » Thu Apr 10, 2008 1:47 am

This is the OFFICIAL and long-awaited announcement of the CO weekend trash tournament.

The Erik Axel Karlfeldt Memorial Trash Tournament ("EAKMTT") will be held on the Sunday following the Chicago Open, which as I understand it will be Sunday, July 20. It'll be held, um, somewhere at the University of Chicago. The tournament will feature a minimum of 10 rounds (but honestly, probably also a maximum of 10 rounds). As previously stated, the distribution and style will be not unlike those of my previous CO trash tournaments (the Richler and Keller).

The fee for EAKMTT will be $25 per person, with no discounts. (So if you are going as a Westbrookian Army of One, you will only be out $25; by contrast, a more conventional foursome will be charged $100.) Obviously we'll need buzzer sets, so it would behoove you to bring 'em if you've got 'em.

The tournament will be written by myself, David Seal, and Michael Arnold. I can neither confirm or deny rumors that Ezequiel Berdichevsky will also chip in a question or two about his favorite colognes and grilled meats.

If you are interested in registering a team, signing up as a free agent, or volunteering to read, please contact me at adyaphe at gmail dot com. We will be especially grateful to anyone who wants to help staff the tournament (and in fact, David Seal has promised "a special surprise" for volunteers).
