You are cordially invited to the 2nd iteration of TRASH @ New Albany High School in New Albany, Ohio on Saturday 20th February, 2016. The initial field cap will be 24 teams, but I will try to open that up if there is interest and I can secure enough competent readers.
TRASH TOURNAMENT ONLY:
Teams will be broken into 4 preliminary brackets of 6 teams each and will play round robin. At the conclusion of morning play, teams will be re-bracketed into 6 brackets of 4 to play another round robin with similar teams, with the top 2 teams at the conclusion of afternoon play for the tournament championship if needed. Every team will be guaranteed 8 rounds.
