Matt already knows this, but I figured I'd post it here for the world to see. Tulane is bringing 1-2 teams' worth of people to this, probably both days.

This happened over the weekend. Was fun. I'm sure stats will be posted at some point in the future for Penn Bowl and trash. The trash finals were of course the pinnacle of the weekend.

Team Jake (Jake Sundberg, Matt Berry) finished Saturday with a 7-1 record to win the the academic portion of the Louisiana Open. Team Ryan (Ryan McLaren, Alec Stewart, Billy Benezech) defeated Team Matt (Matt Berry, Kevin Marshall) in a one-game final to win Sunday's trash tournament.

Thanks to everyone who participated this weekend, and thanks to the ULL team for letting us host this event there. Also, I'd like to thank Jeff Wichers and Nick Collins for serving as full-time staffers for Saturday and Sunday respectively. Lastly, thanks go out to the Penn team for a solid Penn Bowl set, and to Bob Kilner et al. for an enjoyable trash set.

Stats from the Penn Bowl mirror are here.

Quizbowl is fun, so thanks for hosting and providing a thrilling end to the tournament. Also thanks for the text book, maybe I'll use it some time in the future.
