Re: TERP?

I think the last conversation Logan and I had about it was over the summer, but I think we both got busy with the whole work/school thing. I just sent Logan an e-mail to see if he'd be up for writing it again; otherwise, I'd be willing to contribute/help write any other trash tourneys on the radar.

Re: BARGE at Maryland (12/03/11)

MLK weekend works best for me - spring semester starts up Jan. 17, so the 21st would be much dicier.

Re: BARGE at Maryland (12/03/11)

I, for one, vote for January, as there's a zero percent chance I'd attend this in early December, and a near 100 percent chance I'd attend this if it were held sometime in January

Re: General Discussion

Hey guys, For the sports distribution, it was 1/1 baseball, 1/1 basketball, 1/1 football and 1/1 Other in every packet, which I believe is pretty standard for the sports distribution for most trash tournaments. I wrote most of the baseball tossups/bonuses, a few basketball and football tossups/bonus...

Re: Maryland Spring Invitational (5/22)

As some posters have alluded to, we had a rather freakish succession of staff flake outs both during and immediately before the tournament, so we ended up not being able to enter full stats during the day. I've got the prelims entered on my computer, but since that's just three games, I'm just goin...

Hey Rebecca, I'm about to finish my packet, but I'd be willing to split one for you so long as I don't need to write music/comics. I'm most comfortable on sports/movies. email me at j e f f dot amoros at gmail d o t com

Re: Penn Bowl Trash II Discussion

I didn't get a chance to play this set, so I don't know how it played in a tournament setting, but reading through it, I'm a little disappointed with the sports in the set. Too often, the tossups fall into the TRASH-style format of clue-dense but choppily-written sentences that have clues that are t...

Maryland (should be) sending a packet by this deadline, or very shortly thereafter. It's more than half completed at this point.

Re: Centennial It's Academic Tournament (12/13)

As a reader at this tournament for the past four years and a member of the Centennial It's Ac squad for the three years prior to that, I've got to say that, though this tournament wasn't perfect, it's definitely improving. The biggest problem the prelim questions suffered from, especially the CROATO...

CORRECTION TO ABOVE POST: It seems as if a few of the spots in front of Cole Field House are now being used tomorrow for game day parking. This still leaves the meters in front of Banneker, as well as Mowatt, Regents, Lot C2, Lot L, and possibly Union Lane - according to one of the signs, Union Lane...

Hey everyone, With Chris and Jeremy both slated to play tomorrow, I'll be TD-ing the main MO festivities tomorrow, and so I wanted to give you guys some info on parking for tomorrow. We have a home football game, which makes parking stickier, and it's homecoming, which should only complicate matters...
