Are there plans to mirror the Guerilla History side event after this? Our teams would greatly enjoy if this happened

I'm hesistant to because I expect this tournament to run late and we've run into issues with facilities staff being unhappy with us overstaying our reservation, but I can gauge interest among the teams.

Thanks to Georgia Tech for hosting this! It was run really well. We finished pretty quickly even though we were late (sorry about that, we got in later than expected the night before). Special thanks to the two readers who stayed late to read guerilla history!

I'll echo Jonathen's gratitude to Justin, Rodrigo, and those who staffed and who made up time after those lazy Gators got us off to a late start. And I thought the questions tried some interesting things and didn't seem as hard as some suggested (at least until around Round 7 and up, when there definitely seemed to be an increase in difficulty).
