In conjunction with the HSNCT mirror on 7/11, TrashMasters will be held on 7/12 @ UTC. The tournament is packet submission with the following distribution:

Sports: 4/4
Music: 4/4
Movies: 3/3
TV: 3/3

Video Games: 2/2
Comic Books: 1/1

Other: 3/3

There also needs to be an even (or close to it) distribution of pre and post 1990s material. This is a master's level event, so the age range of the competitors will be fairly wide. Even the old farts need to be able to answer questions, youngsters! :lol:


Fee Structure:

Base Fee: $60
Packet received by 6/12: -$10
Buzzer systems (max of 2): -$5
Volunteers (max of 2): -$5
Packet Penalty: $10 if not received by 7/1

If you need a packet provided for you, there will be a fee of $15. We will need advance notice to provide this service. All the funds collected for this tournament will be used to help fund small High and Middle School Quiz Bowl programs in Oliver Springs, TN. If you have any questions, please contact us @ [email protected]

We'd love to, but we're not sure about how feasible it will be at the moment. We may have to borrow from Cottage Bowl a bit to fill in some gaps. We'll know more once we see how our field is shaping up and how many packets will be coming in.

We're good to go. We're looking for somewhere in the area of 8-10 teams.

Are you going to have enough material to not need to pull from publicly posted sets?

"All of you planning to play TM. I need to know if you've read the questions from either Cottage Bowl or Acronym VIII. We're using those sets for filler, and we want to avoid problems."

We have enough original material that there shouldn't be any issues that arise from using outside material.

Mr. Rollins, did you get the email I sent you regarding mirroring this at WUSTL on Saturday, July 11th?
