No Banter Please @ MSNCT Saturday Night (5/11/19)

Post by 100% Clean Comedian Dan Nainan » Fri May 10, 2019 12:27 pm

I’m pleased to organize a last minute mirror of No Banter Please, a trash tournament written by Erik Christensen & co., for Saturday night at MSNCT (5/11/19).

It should be noted that this event is in no way affiliated with or sanctioned by NAQT and has nothing to do with the MSNCT.

I haven’t fully thought through logistics stuff yet, but I’d like to start about 1-1.5 hours after gameplay ends on Saturday, so people have time to grab a quick dinner.

We will need mods, or to ensure an odd number of teams and have teams read on their byes, assuming there’s interest for more than a shootout. The cost will be $10 per player if we do full teams (Erik has offered the set for $7 per player, and I’d like to be able to offer some compensation to anyone willing to mod), or $7 per player if it is a shootout. You can pay me by cash, Venmo, or PayPal.

Additionally, the set has 11 full packets, and 4 packets that have everything except the 4/4 sports written. I don’t see more than 8 full packets being played tomorrow night, so if some people would like to informally play some of the packets tonight (the incomplete ones + maybe one full one?), we could organize that as well. If you play tonight and don’t play tomorrow, you should pay $7.

Post in this thread if you’re interested so I can get a rough idea of how many people to expect.

I'm in. Perhaps there should be a signup spreadsheet?

We're planning on running out for hot dogs and ice cream, and maybe look at the FLW stuff out in Oak Park. I don't know when we'd all get back, but if this is still going when we do, count me in.

Here's a team formation spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing. I added names of people who already posted in this thread.

If there's enough interest we could shootout some of the "extra" packets tonight; we can figure out a room to use after scrims are over. I'll post here with updates.

Some of the (unfinished) packets will be played tonight at 10:00 PM. We can meet in the lower level conference center area by the scrimmage check in. We can meet and find a room from there.

Let’s aim to meet at the same place and organize things at 8:00 tonight.

I took my name off the spreadsheet since I feel too exhausted to do anything this evening. Have lots of fun, everyone.
