Linear Championship Belt

April 02, 2012

Imagine, if you will, there was only one Golden VHS... instead of the 300 plus that have been handed out, their was a single Golden VHS Championship belt and every time a team won it they wont from the last team that won it, and so on and so forth until you traced it back to the inaugural Champion. We imagined it, so we traced and it back and this is that Trivia Club Linear Championship Belt.
  • Linear Championship can only be won if team is present for the win.
  • Linear Championship can't be lost on ties.
  • Linear Championship is vacated if the Championship team is not present at any Trivia Club event for five weeks, or 35 days. Then after the Linear Championship is won at the next possible event.
  • Linear Championship can be won or lost at all locations.
  • If a team has a different name then the one they had won the Linear Championship with, at least two team members have to be present for future defense (something kept track of for the best of our abilities).

NOTES
* Championship vacated due to Trivia Club cutting ties with Wychwood Pub.
** The Bastards, with Matthew Smith, first defeated PETE! on the 030 edition before defending the Championship once with PETE! as a member of The Bastards.
*** This was the second event in the eleven-part Grand Championship Grand Prix.
**** Record for most defenses in the least amount of days. Because of the make-up of the Electric Bastards, Championship could have been defended (and even lost) by either The Electric Mayhem or The Bastards.
***** Record defences. The Electric Bastards beat The Bastards on 056, with two members of The Electric Mayhem, thus making it a Championship defendable only by The Electric Mayhem.
^ Took place during first leg of Christopher Hitchens Cup.
^^ Took place during second leg of Christopher Hitchens Cup.
^^^ Won at the last Cardinal Rule event of 2015, defended on last Hitch (and last event overall) of 2015.
^^^^ This was the first, and likely the last, Leap Day Trivia Club event.
^^^^^ PETE! defended, and lost, the Linear Championship as the only team member of Team YXE continuing to participate in Trivia Club in Toronto.
√ The defense took place at the inaugural Trivial Awards, as The Electric Bastards, on December 14th, 2016.
√√ As the Twenty-Sixteenagers, Lt. Dance won at The Last Question, our final event at Lou Dawgs.
√√√ Karen from Finance defended the Linear Championship Belt successfully, at CR#199, as Cheryl from HR, though lost the Belt at CR#202, as Todd from Accounting.
√√√√ During the Grand Championship Grand Prix of 2017, The Bastards and Electric Mayhem once again teamed up as The Electric Bastards. Number of reigns is as The Electric Bastards collective.
