Scattergories 5 (Chicago Open Sunday, August 22, 2021)

Post by women, fire and dangerous things »

Will Alston has given me the okay, so I'm planning to have Scattergories 5 run on CO Sunday this year. (I most likely won't be there, so Mike Bentley will be TDing.) We'll have teams of four, and it will cost 10 USD per person to play. Staffers will be paid $20 per person.

I've created a spreadsheet for team formation and staffer signup: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing. This is an unofficial spreadsheet; to officially register your team, you'll have to email me ([email protected]) with your roster.

Just a reminder that this is happening in a little over a week - on Wednesday, I'll start organizing any remaining free agents into teams.

I'm now closing the field at 12 teams, but if you're interested in joining at the last minute, you can post in this thread and we might still be able to accommodate you.

In fact, there are three open spots on the Wesley Mathews team, and one on the 12th team! Anyone who wants to join to round out the field can play for free - just get in touch.

Given recent drops, I'll instead consolidate the field to 10 teams. There are currently 42 people signed up, which means that if there are no more drops, there will be two 5-person teams. If anyone objects to having a couple of teams with 5 people playing the whole time, please let me know.

If you are a free agent without a team who I realize I don't have contact for, please come to L211 and I'll try to put you on one.

Jordan's team cleared the field. Stats are here: https://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/7 ... s/prelims/

Thanks everyone for playing and staffing! I may read the last packet after JORDU if anyone is still around.

By the way, I will eventually fix the issue in the stats with all games claiming to go into overtime but may take a while.
