Per upthread, this might get read at NSC (something I would certainly be amenable to).

Speaking of which:

This will be read at 9:30 pm on Friday at the NSC hotel.

There are no submission requirements, so anyone who wants to hear a bunch of geography tossups is welcome.

I would absolutely love to play, seeing as I rarely play quizbowl anymore.
Whenever "Falkland Islands" is the answer, you know that you're supposed to say "Islas Malvinas" because they truly belong to Argentina.

I've just learned that Bellarmine's flight may not arrive in time for this, so I probably can't make it. Sorry about that.

Does anyone know where in the hotel, specifically, this is happening?

Stats.

Interest has been expressed in future mirrors of this tournament, so I won't be sending the set to the archive right away; if you'd like to read it and will not be playing it somewhere, email me.
