Post by The Schopenhauer Power Hour » Wed Sep 28, 2011 10:17 pm

ANNOUNCEMENT:

This is an announcement for the second incarnation of TERP (Trash Everyone Really Prefers,) a trash tournament written by members of the Maryland Academic Quiz Team and edited by myself, Logan Anbinder. TERP 2 will be held at the University of Maryland on Sunday, January 15, 2012, the day after Chris Ray's academic open tournament BARGE, the announcement for which can be found here. As with last year's set, TERP 2 will be easy-to-regular difficulty, and targeted at younger collegiate players, though everyone is welcome to participate.

TERP will use ACF-style rules, and questions will be powermarked. There will not be lames at this tournament.

-$5 per laptop (max. of 1)

DISTRIBUTION

I emailed the address listed above about a week and a half ago and haven't heard back. Tulane would like to host a mirror of this tournament for the Lower South/East Texas.

Oh wait, I didn't notice that A&M has been added as a site. That would be possible for us, but we would prefer something closer; if no one else in the South offers, we would like to do the mirror for the region.

Will there be a DeLorean available upon arrival?

Some number of teams composed of current and former Delaware players are planning on attendance. We will probably not be able to firm up the number of teams until the week of the tournament, but let's say 2 for now.

What date are you guys thinking about doing this? Auburn would love to come play TERP. Also, would you guys do a mirror of BARGE along with it?

We don't start classes again until Tuesday Jan. 17th, so it's going to have to be that weekend (1/21-22) at least. I'll see about BARGE (I would really like to start off the semester with an academic set as well), but right now it's just TERP.

I'm looking to team up with a couple of people who know 80s music, TV, video games/comics, and don't mind losing.

I'm available to quasi-competently fill a seat for any incomplete team that needs help in video games, '90s music, or obscure sports.

Team Susan Sarandon is a Baby-Eating Witch (Patrick, Grant, Tim and Eric) defeated UVA (David, Tommy, Evan A. and Evan N.) in a one-game final to win the tournament.

Stats for all games can be found here

I want to extend a massive thanks to everyone who came out to play, and especially to everyone who helped staff and write the tournament. Please refrain from discussing specific questions in this thread-- I'll post here if we're able to get a private thread set up, at which time I definitely encourage everyone to give feedback. In the meantime, general comments about the tournament are much appreciated.

A private forum has been set up! Please feel free to request to join, though obviously only do so if you have already played or will not be playing the tournament. I look forward to hearing everyone's feedback!
