Re: your official Canadian cavalry regiment discussion threa

So what I gather from the Canadians' posts in this thread is that Canadian history is just a parade of prime ministers. That was what you intended, right? Oh come on. This thread is pretty full of misrepresentations on all sides, but don't just make things up. One post (Joe's above) is a listing of...

Re: VETO at the University of Toronto (2015-07-25)

We have 9 teams signed up, so the field is now full. If you want to be put on a waiting list pending a possible increase in the field cap, let me know.

Re: VETO at the University of Toronto (2015-07-25)

A more serious question, when does this event end? I know it's not advised to book early tickets, but the last train back to Ottawa leaves at 6:30pm. Catching the 6:30 PM train is probably doable but not advisable. I expect VETO to finish by 5:30 given the field-cap I've set, but VETO games sometim...

Re: VETO at the University of Toronto (2015-07-25)

Rein, who should we send the packets to, and when are they officially due? I will update later with where the packets need to be sent exactly, but Jordan is correct in that it will be to someone at the Vancouver site the night before. Also, is there someone running this tournament I can confer with...

Re: Specific question discussion

My thoughts on this question (not in any official capacity) are that it's obvious if you've taken any microbial or ecosystem ecology. But I don't know how many people have, and I'd bet it's not so many that the powermark is unreasonable. (To clarify, I did not write this question.) I think that the...

Re: PADAWAN @ University of Toronto 2014-10-19

I'm going to hold the two remaining spots for the schools that have expressed interest until Oct 15th (tomorrow) at 6:30 AM , just in the interests of giving some fair warning so they can coordinate their teams, and in the hopes of having a broad field. If I have not heard anything by then, however,...

Re: PADAWAN @ University of Toronto 2014-10-19

Do you expect this tournament to end within a reasonable time to take a 6pm train from Union? I expect it to, yes. Unless the field balloons in the next few days we should finish well before then. Be advised though that I am still waiting to hear from a few schools that said they would be coming bu...
