Thanks for playing the Eisenhower Memorial Tournament, everybody! There's a private discussion group for anyone who has played the set and wants to discuss it to join, so if you want to discuss the set, please go to your "User Control Panel," Hit "Usergroups," and then select "2017 EMT Discussion" and request to join.

On a personal note: I apologize for the repeat issues I was made aware of, along with some issues with proofreading. We'll be doing a readthrough for proofreading this week, to make sure we don't miss anything else.

PM'd you.

EDIT: Well, I guess it wasn't intended to be that big of a secret then. Confirmed Jakob Myers. Heck of a player.

Can confirm; was just me. By colonial definitions, Naperville is in the Ohio Country. I apologize to anyone who was confused by my usage of a state not my own.
