WELCOME TO JAVA JIVE “IT'S A GROUP THING” TOURNAMENT XXIV

Java Jive - Manhattan Transfer

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the Java Jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and Java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup (Boy!)

I love Java, sweet and hot
Whoops Mr. Moto, I'm a coffee pot
Shoot the pot and I'll pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup


GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION (Please read)
The Tournament consists of teams consisting of 2 members. The Java Jive will commence on November 26, 2012. Signup will close on Sunday, November 25th at 8PM GMT.

Competition will consist of six (6) specific subject Brainoffs of 10 questions beings sent everyday for five days. Only the Tournament Mistress and her Partner in Crime have knowledge of the subjects to be sent. Be warned, these subjects are not for the faint-hearted.

Players must be available to play every day for the whole week. Please do not let your teammate down by signing up and then not playing once competition commences.

Teams will be randomly formed. All one has to do to sign up is post the message “I’m in” and you will be matched with another member to form a team. All team names need to based on an "MUSICAL GROUP".

Please post an 'MUSICAL GROUP beside your “I’m in’ message. Team matchups will be posted in the forum. The Tournament Mistress will match team members based on IDs so that those who have been members the longest will be matched with those who have been here the shortest length of time.

Teams will be posted on Sunday, November 25th.

Quizzing will commence 3am GMT on Monday, November 26th. You will receive brainoffs from ‘JAVA JIVE’. A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum available to all team members. In the case of a tie (the same probability rate of Aztecs from Mars in Big Bird suits attacking us on December 20, 2012) The Tournament Mistress or Official Partner in Crime will send three (3) specific subject brainoffs to break the tie.

The individual scores for each team member will be added together to form a cumulative team total. The team with the highest cumulative total wins.

In case the Factacular site hiccups, we will spring into action and resolve issues as soon as the site is up and running and continue with the competition.

We do respectfully ask that everyone play their challenges as soon as possible after receiving them --- you will be less likely be affected if the site goes down. We will only replay challenges if the site is down for more than 12 hours. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches.

AND FINALLY,
The Tournament Mistress and her Partners in Crime volunteer their own time, so have some patience with the resolution of any problems that you may encounter and expect that there may be delays in the immediate posting of results. Please send a private message to Javalyne or JMK if you encounter problems or discrepancies. Decisions made by The Tournament Mistress and her Partners in Crime are final and no correspondence will be entered into.

Invite other members to come and play! Everyone gets an award and most of all --- everyone has fun!

Edison Lighthouse

She aint got no money, her clothes are kind of funny, her hair is kind of wild and free, ah but love grows where my Rosemary goes, and nobody knows like me.

She talks kind of crazy and people think she lazy and her life's a mystery
Ah, but love grows where my Rosemary goes and nobody knows like me.

There's something about her hand holding mine and the feeling's just fine and
I just gotta say. She's really got a magical spell and it's working so well that I can't get away. I'm a lucky fella and I just gotta tell her that I love her endlessly
Because love grows where my Rosemary goes and nobody knows like me.
