Bar Trivia Finals! ($1,000 Tournament)

Congratulations Victory Nachos! We have made it to the finals of the winter tournament!

Our win during the semi-finals has qualified us for both the $1k and $5k finals nights at Penn Social. I will be posting Meetups for both events.

Because making it to the finals is the product of the hard work of many people, and because the team size is capped at 35, I will be giving priority to those who have shown up on a regular and semi-regular basis. It is at my discretion who those people are and I will consult other regulars to make sure we don't miss anybody.

If a regular or semi-regular is on the wait list, I will move them to the main list and bump somebody else down. Please do not take offense, but this is the fairest way to reward those who helped get us here.

P.S - NO CELLPHONE USAGE AT ALL DURING THE FINALS!

--- MEETUP INFORMATION ---

EVENT: Tournament of Champions
LOCATION: Penn Social
METRO: The nearest Metro is Chinatown/Gallery Place on the Red Line.
PARKING: Good luck.

CONTACT: My cellphone number is (301) 758-1144. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

      Max, at your end of the table, you help fill out a blank answer sheet with whomever you are sitting with and get it to the team writer at the end of the round, who is almost always Maya. She uses the papers from around the table to corroborate answers.

    • Eric D. D.

      I'd be happy to help out if you can use someone who can't get there until 7:30 or so...

    Gonna be a little late... metro lol

    March 12, 2014

  • Jen

    Tom, Christian and I are here! We have the same table as yesterday, and I brought the box- which has plenty of interior space :)

      How far is Penn social from metro?

      March 12, 2014

    • Kristen

      Like two blocks from the Chinatown/Gallery Place red line station-- Verizon Center exit.

      March 12, 2014

  • Justin K.

    Can't make it tonight - stuck at work. Good luck to all! Cheers

    Made it in way too early. May grab a pint somewhere before making my way in.

      It's good! Few of us here already.

      Great! I'm going to grab dinner and then I'll join you all.

      1 · March 12, 2014

  • Jen

    I'm still planning on getting there early, as it's supposed to start thunderstorming around 5 pm... I'll bring the phone box I made (it's a fun visual even if it isn't needed) ;)

    4 · March 12, 2014

    • Maya F.

      It's totally needed! We had fun playing phone tetris yesterday (all the phones fit, but just barely and the lid wasn't quite on).

      1 · March 12, 2014

    • James

      It kinda reminded me of those games like "get the car out of the parking lot" when a specific person needed to get their phone. Had to move things around "going outside the lines." Definitely bring your box, Jen!

      March 12, 2014

  • Kevin S.

    Needed to take my car in for service, and won't be able to get it before I need to be at Penn Social. Also, I am now saddled with a large car repair bill.

    1 · March 12, 2014

  • Max

    I might not make it in time since the storms coming will be nasty. I'm going to bail unfortunately

    1 · March 12, 2014

  • Tom

    Looks like I'm having a productive day and will be able to get there around 5. Hopefully I didn't just test the odds.

  • Max

    How does this work since I am never asked for answers at Blackfinn

    March 12, 2014

  • Max

    Where do we get the T-shirt?

    1 · March 12, 2014

  • SB

    I think some of us who came tonight are wearing our t shirts tomorrow (right?) so those of you who have them should as well - team solidarity!

    3 · March 11, 2014

    • SB

      Mine is neon orange and says "Hey I ask the questions here," which is actually not totally inaccurate for work but doesn't really fit our dress code. Mine's in my bag and I'll change into it if enough others are wearing theirs!

      I gave mine away to somebody without one. So...if anybody has an extra, I'll wear it tonight :p

      March 12, 2014

  • Jen

    Never fear, I have our phone receptacle --and I even remembered to bring it with me when I left the house.

    6 · March 12, 2014

    Hey all, 1 - I'm seeking volunteers who can get to Penn Social by between[masked] to help reserve table areas for our team. Unlike at Blackfinn, we don't have specific tables that are basically ours for the taking and we can't have one person reserving for 10+ people. So I need at least 5-6 people to show up by 5.30 or earlier if possible...any takers? It'll also give you a chance to get drinks and food before it gets ridiculously crowded :-) I plan to get there by 5.30 unless something happens @ work. 2 - If you can't come, please remove yourself from the RSVP list soon rather than at 4pm the day of because I need to keep track of numbers!

    March 10, 2014

    • Max

      No guarantee depends on work.

      March 12, 2014

    • SB

      So if it's like yesterday, we'll have a table pre-reserved for us, in which case we don't need to get there super early though District Trivia recommends that we do try and have the majority of the team there by 6 pm

      March 12, 2014

  • Rebecca

    All apologies; I won't be able to make this due to a late meeting scheduled at work. Hope to be at BlackFinn next week though. I hope someone can fill the vacancy I'm creating. Good luck at the tournament!

    March 12, 2014

  • Leigh

    This was fun last night, but I'm going to take it easy tonight.

    A reminder that if you are no longer able to make the event to please update your RSVP. Attendance is very important and a no-show will have a much higher chance of being bumped to the wait list during future finals.

    March 10, 2014

  • Tom

    I'll prob stop by later and show support

    March 8, 2014

    • SB

      Tom, you should hop on the waitlist! You're enough of a regular at this point that you should be able to get in!

      1 · March 9, 2014

  • SB

    So we need some sort of large container for all our cell phones to go into (this is not a joke): a cage, a tote, a box of some kind. We apparently get a bonus point or two if we have a really good/creative container. Anyone own anything that will fit the bill and can bring it? Perhaps something like this: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/edab/ or this: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/13e5/

    And yes, we do get to check our phones about every 20-30 minutes, during the scoring breaks - they'll make announcements when we can do that. They have to be stricter than normal bc it's the finals.

    I'll be posting more updates/reminders as I get them from District Trivia and as we get closer to the date.

    • Christian E.

      Hmm... We could always get a cardboard box and alter it to look like the crate

      March 7, 2014

    • Kristen

      You guys... :) Someone create a Meetup event to make an awesome box.
