Re: Clearinghouse for Random Packet Announcements

I have a short, 40-tossup vanity Trash packet that I've read to a few groups of Ontario quizbowlers. I don't have plans to read them in IRC or anything, but I am happy to post the packet if people are interested. I should note, however, that the packet has some CanCon, including a little bit of Can...

So currently we only have confirmed teams from Mac and Waterloo, and one buzzer system from Waterloo. Guelph or Brian/Western, are you still coming? And will you be with buzzer? We may be looking at one or two slap rooms if we can't get a couple more buzzer sets, and a smaller tournament of 5-6 teams.
