Trivia weekend has passed! While we didn't place as well as we had hoped to, we ended up knee deep in success. First we had a very high level of participation and managed to play the entire weekend. This is no simple feat! As part of this we had some very strong participation from remote locations including Seatle, WA, Switzerland, and Toronto. Closer to home we successfully split responsibilities between State College and Ithaca. We'll we were without technical challenges, googledocs worked well as a scorekeeper and chatting/colaboration tool and will provide great guidance for an improved system for next year. In the end we had 8,700 points at 29th place. This is a great performance, especially considering that the majority of the team were new to trivia weekend, or had not experienced the entire 50 hours. To top off the weekend we won the "Best Team Name Award." Now to start prepartions for Trivia Weekend 2010!
