I am pleased to announce that McMaster University will be hosting the Canadian circuit mirror of ARCADIA online on November 20, 2021. I, Adrian Wong, will be the tournament director. I may be reached by email at [email protected].

This mirror will be held online using Zoom and, and will be supported by a Discord server through which all announcements will be posted. The opening meeting will take place at 9:45 am EST, and gameplay will begin at 10:00 am EST. We are hoping for gameplay to end at around 7:00 pm EST, after which a closing meeting will take place, followed by finals if needed.

This tournament is open to all collegiate teams, although preference will be given to teams currently belonging to the Canadian circuit. Please note that the field size is capped to 8 teams. If you are interested in sending a team to this mirror, please fill out this Google Form. Registration will close on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, at 11:59 pm EST.
