Trash talk and unsportsmanlike behavior will be highly encouraged.

"With the groundwork laid for one of the seminar’s most important sessions, an understanding of its (arguably) least important is germane. “As board members, we had been discussing how to create more fun memories for attendees,” says Triple 8/Triple Tiger’s George Couri. “So I figured bloodsport, deathmatch ping pong would accomplish that. My cohort on this, Entercom’s Tim Roberts, has hosted pong tournaments for years in his office. We also often play one another. It turns out more people than you think play.” Rooting for (or against) competitors including iHeart’s Rod Philips, Cox’s Johnny Chiang, Lady A’s Charles Kelley, pong ringer Brett Young and epic trash-talker Scotty McCreery (see bracket page 5) is only part of the fun. “We have two bars that won’t be crowded like Barlines,” Couri says. “We also get to see some good trash talking, we get to cheer our favorites ... and we have two bars that won’t be crowded like Barlines.” Artists, attendees, bars, balls and paddles. What could go wrong? –Chuck"
