ATTN: PENN QUIZBOWLERS

Post by Broad-tailed Grassbird » Tue Nov 30, 2010 2:12 am

MSU and a lot of other teams were planning on coming to your tournament, but you have yet to post anything about it outside of the calendar. In fact, everyone in the world was planning to come to Penn Bowl or a mirror of it as ACF Winter is toast. So anyways, we want to run our traditional hs tournament in January, but we don't even know if Penn Bowl is happening, or TIT for that matter, and we like January quiz bowl, so we'd like to come.


If nobody posts, I'll just assume January quiz bowl is gonna die, even though it was very prosperous last year.

Also, Maryland convince us to come to TIT instead, since Penn Bowl doesn't want to happen.

After considering your generous offer, and in order to ensure that you'll be on hand in person to provide our event with more contributions as enriching as this post, MAQT is prepared to "sweeten the pot" with:

-A complimentary* case of Chicago Open Orange Chicken.
-Two medium shoelaces (near-mint condition, briefly used by Logan Anbinder).
-The large-breasted female stick figure drawn on loose leaf to distract Jonathan Magin during Penn Bowl 2008 (not-so-near-mint condition, not-so-briefly used by Charles Meigs).

*For us. Does not include S&H.

We eagerly await your response.

Damn, I knew I should have held out for more.

On a more serious note,

Wouldn't the first packet deadline be almost immediately after you announced it at this point? Some of us like to get packets in early for discounts.
