So how I see it playing out right now would be: Mac hosting an academic open tournament or Moon Pie + COLT on a weekend in early August. We'd host Jeff Goldblum around its normal late August date.

How about that? Again...I'd still have to contact the other writers about mirroring their tournaments.
I want this to happen soooooo bad.

Yes, this idea is what I was proposing.

Just to get some momentum back in this thread, I've gotten permission for a COLT mirror at Mac, and I've also inquired about hosting a Moon Pie mirror, but have not heard back yet.

Which weekend would people (especially those traveling from the U.S.) prefer for a two day (Academic Tournament TBA) + COLT mirror at McMaster University?:

August 6th + 7th

OR

August 13th +14th

For those who would be traveling and would also like to spend some time checking out other things, here's a calendar with events going on in Toronto (a 40 minute-1 hour bus ride away depending on traffic) that may help you choose which weekend you would prefer: http://www.toronto.com/thingstodo/event ... &year=2011. The Toronto Blue Jays would be in town for the August 13th weekend.

Let me know, and I can start the room booking process and make announcements.

There's maybe a 20% chance I could make the first weekend, and essentially a 0% chance I could make the second weekend.

I wouldn't be able to make it the second weekend either.

The latter is the weekend of VCU Open, which means I'm out, but I'm also not available on the former weekend due to work-related travel. So I guess you shouldn't count on me either way.

Jordan Palmer had mentioned something to me about a Moon Pie/FOGHAT mirror in June?

Just an update,

It looks like Mac will be hosting Moon Pie and COLT mirrors on the weekend of August 6th-7th.

Is there going to be an official announcement for this soon?

I was waiting for confirmation of room bookings, but I might do it earlier.

I figured it might be a good idea since Michigan just announced a VCU mirror on that weekend and you might want to let people know that there'll be a tournament that we can attend without crossing the border.

Argh why does the Moon Pie mirror have to be on the same weekend as VCU Open?

Am I going to have any chance to play a good academic regular difficulty event before next summer? -_-

Sinan's right, but it might be too late by now.

Moon Pie will also be fun.
