Guelph will almost certainly have at least one team.

McMaster will definitely have one, and likely two, teams.

Some UWO contingent, including at the least myself, will be in attendance.

I'd like to express my thanks to Waterloo for hosting TERP and to the Maryland team for a very well written set.

I would just like to offer my thanks to Waterloo for what was possibly the best-organized tournament that I've ever attended. We basically did not start this until well past 10:00 due to inclement weather, but we got eleven rounds in by 6:15, a pace which is almost unheard of at most Canadian events. Jj did a great job marshaling her staff today, and they were uniformly excellent.

This tournament was also probably the best-written trash tournament that I've played, so props to Logan and the rest of the Maryland writing team for that!

Thanks, Brian!

Since this was the last mirror, the set is hereby officially cleared for discussion. However, there's already been a discussion thread started in a private forum-- if you want to check out what's been said there, or add your comments, you can request it and I'll approve you.
