Too Much Trivia in the Pants

Straight from the Horse’s Mouth

This little gem was posted on the trivia site this morning:

As you all surely know, the contest has in the past suffered from a lack of willing phone answerers. As you also know, this can reallllly be a drag. This year we are hoping to help that problem out by requesting that teams agree to specific blocks of time during the contest (to be decided during the registration period), in addition to the normal, volunteer-based phone answering.

We trust that teams will not take this as an opening to be even more unsupportive of the contest, by ONLY sending in phone answerers for those decided amounts of time.

With much thanks,

TGM Derrell :)

Sorry, Mr. Grand Master, but we will be unable to commit to this. If you’ve been around long enough, then you’re fully aware that you have no trouble with our team sending down phone answerers, but we simply don’t have enough people for us to be able to commit to providing answerers at a specified time. We will gladly send down more than our share of phone answerers, as we do every year, but guaranteeing coverage of a block of time is something we cannot do. Sorry.
