Things to know for MTM XIII

Date: April 19, 2014
Time: 2 PM

*** Make sure you have RSVP’d on Facebook to either Full Contact Trivia, Triviaheads, or your local host.  Get that information to them pronto if you haven’t.

*** Absolutely no cell phones allowed inside the building.  Anything resembling a cell phone, a bar of soap, a block of wood that can fit into the palm of your hand – all of these things get you disqualified ON SIGHT.  This is our Super Bowl, people.  We won’t be in the mood for explanations.  Leave it in the car, or leave it with Bobby.

*** Get there on time (see below post for what that means), and read through the clipboard given to you.  There is vital – VITAL – information in it… Make sure to read up on duties for the Captain, Runner, Scribe, and Server Liason (or go over to FCT on facebook today and read it).

See you there, and good luck!

MTM XIII Arrival Times

Bobby: When a restaurant gets 250 people all at once, very few people get decent service unless the joint is staffed with waitering & bartending ninjas like myself..

Unfortunately these are as rare as a Kerlin with connective brain tissue, so we have a system for helping …

We stagger arrival times for teams so that the restaurant can handle the load and everyone has a good experience.

Your arrival time is based on your order of finish in the cumulative.

IT IS IMPORTANT that your GROUP arrives at the prescribed time and is seated in whole and begins ordering so that by the time the next wave comes in, the food and beverages for your group are already handled.

DO NOT FLAUNT THIS ARRIVAL TIME. Respect the competition, your competitors, and the venue by adhering to this policy.

Arrival times
12:15 – Fetus, Hazel, Coconuts, 4 Ponies

12:30 – Peter, Samurai, FFA, Pregnant

12:45 – #9, Challenged, HFB, Phasers

1:00 – Rash, Playboys, CB.c, Oedipus

1:15 – LnF, Ray, BBvBoE, Muffins

1:30 – Rednecks, Jimmy Jams, Axis, United

arriving early is fine, but you may have to order from the bar or wait until your server can get to you.

If you stick to your arrival time you’ll be fine.. Get in, get down, get ordered, and get after it…

Good Luck

MTM XIII, Week 9, Mon/Tue

Axis leads, but only because Bobby wouldn’t accept “Skip Putnam” as 1/3 of the Dark Triad, thereby costing United a win on Monday.  The answer is presently under review…
