For the purpose of transparency, I will disclose that I have given the Canadian teams a slight discount on the mirror fee due primarily to exchange rate issues, in order to help marginally with the affordability of the tournament.

Thanks to everyone who came out to EFT in Toronto today! Toronto B defeated McGill A 300-260 to win the tournament in the first game of an advantaged final. Over 60 players at a tournament is probably pretty close to a record for a tournament in Canada and it was great to see several teams who haven't been as active in the past. The stats can be found here and will be fully completed in the next few days: https://hsquizbowl.org/db/tournaments/5966/
