I might wager a guess that this is slightly harder than the last few years' MUTs and may be more in keeping with the original difficulty of the tournament which is sort of in between straight up "novice"/Fall and regular difficulty.

So something around what ACF Winter was intended to be?

Maybe, I don't remember what Winter was supposed to be. Early (first 2 or so years) MUT's I think are a better comparison.

Carleton University's club president asked to post that they're waiting upon a response for their bid to host the Canadian mirror of this tournament.

I'm a little unsure on the mirror situation, but Gaurav wondered if the Texas area was interested in running a mirror.
