Some spoiler-hating Babylonian guy would like to change McGill's team name to "Harry Harlow and the Chamber of Secrets", despite how unfunny it sounds.

Because of a room-booking issue, we are changing locations and having our tournament at Burke Science Building (BSB). Our headquarters will be BSB 106. For those who don't know, I have included a picture to help to better understand the general location (The circled building (11) is BSB. As a reference point, building 51 is MUSC). If you have any questions or comments you would like to ask, please contact us at macquizbowl@gmail.com.

Congratulation to Eeveelutions (featuring Kira, Aaron, Christine, and Adam) for winning ACRONYM and clearing the field with a 9-1 record! Despite the late start (mostly due to me sleeping in for over an hour more than I should) and the timing and staffing constraints that were imposed, I am glad that given all that, this tournament went relatively smoothly. Most of the people who deserve the credit for this are Jay Misuk who created the schedule and took control in the morning, Ben and Paul for agreeing to split from their team to keep with the schedule, Sebastian and Aidan for helping to moderate, and all the people from various teams who took part in score-keeping, especially when we were short-staffed.
