Re: Imaginary Landscape no. 1 at HSNCT

So, this happened in the sense that there was some non-zero number of tossups heard. However it didn't happen in the sense that no formal tournament took place. We had a shootout using three of the packets between Matt Bollinger, Aaron Rosenberg, and Mike Cheyne in Mike Cheyne's hotel room.
